Ben Daglish, 1966-2018

Post by merman » Thu Oct 04, 2018 5:33 pm

Sad news... C64 composer Ben Daglish has passed away suddenly at the age of 52.

Composer on great games including Trap, Krakout and The Last Ninja (sharing the work on TLN with Anthony Lees - who passed away in 2016). In recent years Ben attended retro events and played with supergroup Stuck In D'80s.

I will miss meeting him.

Got any idea what he died of ?

He wasn't very old!!

He'd been fighting lung cancer and had had chemotherapy in 2016.
