Death of a legend

John Hughes died yesterday, of a heart attack; he was only 59.

Hughes was responsible for some of the best 1980s brat pack films, including my favourite film of all time, The Breakfast Club, as well as Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink. His films were a huge part of growing up for my generation. I can't hear the opening bars of Don't You Forget About Me without smiling.

A tribute night is definitely called for, any takers?
