Legacy Fundraiser in memory of composer, programmer, C64 musician, father, husband and friend, Ben Daglish who passed away on 01/10/18

I remember when I first heard the music of the Last Ninja back in 87, I knew something special had been created then. When I listen to it again today, it's even more special knowing the limitations that pioneers like you worked with. Rest in peace Ben, you inspired a generation of kids and peaked our interest in creativity, whether it was music, coding or both. Thank-you.
I was saddened by the passing away of Mr. Daglish. I, as likely many other people of my generation, was lucky enough to grow up playing videogames where the soundtrack had been written by him, and those were melodies destined to stuck in our head forever. And that's arguably the best way I have to remember him: I only knew Ben by his music and, lately, thanks to a couple of interviews (god bless the internet!), so I hope his legacy will stay with us, the people that are still whistling his tunes after 30 years.
