    For those who've watched shows like The Young Ones, Blackadder, and several others will recognize the name. Back in the 80s MTV ran The Young Ones, my friends and myself would have parties around those episodes and never missed one. Great British comedy. You will be missed.

    He was 56. Possible reprecussions from a quad accident 16 yrs ago when he almost died then. Those guys in the Young Ones were very close to the bunch I ran with.

    Omg, this is the first I heard about it! That's awful...56, man...not "young", but much too young.

    RIP Rik, shine on you crazy diamond
