BBC Four has announced a tribute to Brian Pern following the fictional rock icon's death in a 'segway mistake'.
Brian Pern: A Tribute is being directed by Rhys Thomas OBE, who was already making a documentary film about Pern, the former lead singer of pioneering prog-rock band Thotch, when he sadly passed away.
Rhys Thomas OBE said of the news: 'I am absolutely devastated that the documentary I was making about Brian's future has now become a tribute following the terrible news. We have lost one of the greatest Brians in rock music. I am still in shock and will send him off in style in this programme.'
