    Sad. Didn't he do Grange Hill and Channel 4 News amongst other things?

    Wow... I found Alan Hawkshaw's music through my love of underground hip hop. The music that he made along with Brian Bennett and Keith Mansfield was superb, really on another level. What a funky guy, RIP.

    On the BBC obituary it mentions that he donated 10% of his income to less well off people. Decent guy.

    @HarryCrumb I found out about Alan's music from the numerous mashups that used a lot of Alan's music (especially Reverend Dan).

    Here's a short interview with him.

    Just seen this, so sad.

    I emailed him a few weeks back with a question, he was gracious enough to reply too. RIP.

    Sad news. He did alot of corking stuff over the years. A great writer, producer & musician.

    He always produced a great keyboard sound.

    R.I.P. Alan

    Mind blown that the guy behind B-Boy classic’Champ’ also wrote the Grange Hill theme!

    This is another fine performance with Brian Bennett (nearly as good as Name of the Game).
