Did you guys ever watch The Young Ones? I'm so bummed, I just saw an item that Rik Mayall has died although it didn't mention cause of death.
ETA: Apparently he was in a serious bike crash in 1998 after which he was in a coma for five days. Sounds like he recovered but had ongoing issues with memory. Still doesn't explain his sudden death though, which is thought to have been from natural causes.
