Ripped in June

A selected overview of culture stars relevant to my own tastes who passed away this month - an extraordinary quiet month in this respect. Rest in peace.

Jeffrey Tate (74), British classical music conductor. Not as prolific in recording music as some of his colleagues, we still have a few of his CD's in our collection.
Adam West (88). American actor. He was the first TV Batman in the sixties, and more recently the voice of mayor Adam West in the animation series Family Guy.
Ootje Oxenaar (87), Dutch graphic designer. I had never heard of him, yet I've seen his work more often than that of anyone else: he designed all Dutch banknotes between 1966 and 2002.
