Sad to hear of his death aged 68.

He played in the first test I ever saw at Edgbaston in 1975 - ripping through our middle order on a wet uncovered wicket in damp, grizzly conditions.

He signed my scorecard at the close of play as well!

But that skin cancer menace is beginning to catch up with a few cricketers of the pre-sunblock era.  Richie Benaud was another.
