Gallus Moll reported that Alex Tickel, Muscat's akenaton, died during the last week. Can anyone confirm this?
May he rest in peace.
Joe

Rhudi Zack, one of Alex's sons, posted news of his death on FB page - sadly I had not seen akenaton in a while - used to cross paths periodically, chat about folk music and ither things.
Rest easy. Akenaton........

From Facebook on January 6, 2024:
It is with deep sadness to advise the Strachur and wider community that our much loved dad Alex Tickell Snr., after a relatively short illness, passed away at lunchtime today in Inverclyde with his family by his side.
In the meantime the family respectfully request some time and privacy to grieve - many thanks.
Kindest regards
Alex and Marsha Tickell

You can track through that account to land on the Alex Tickell FB account (very shut down).

I recall from some of akenaton's later posts that
his wife pre-deceased him.
Here's hoping that they are together now.

Lots of recent posts were deleted for fighting, but he did participate on music threads. Drop either of these in your search bar:

Sadly, another Mudcatter has left us to be with his maker. I have included Alex Tickell, (akenaton), in the "In Memoriam" thread and send my condolences to all those who know and love him. RIP

Akenaton was a revolutionary in his digital persona just as the original Akenaton was to the religion of ancient Egypt. He will be missed.

He wasn't a revolutionary at all, but an utterly unpleasant racist and sexist bigot!

He's got you there, Don. It's the reason Ake couldn't post here any more. But he did come in and remark in the music sections and when it wasn't dog whistle stuff it usually stayed in the threads.

He seemed to raise the ire of all the 'right-on' members of mudcat. The reasons were various and what the hell it was about was hard to understand for most of us. There was some talk of cruelty to animals and frequent denunciations of his ideology.

They dobbed him in to the mods, who seemed to remove his posts. This made it even harder to follow what was going on for the rest of us. Somewhere along the line we lost hundreds of mudcatters who were repelled by the wildness of the accusations and the foul atmosphere.

Anyway I don't suppose any of us will figure in the history of the next two hundred years, except perhaps as an example of 20th century neuroses.

As I said, I never got on with him but I wouldn't wish him any harm or dream of turning his obituary into a platform for having a go at fellow Mudcatters.

Leave it out people. Even if you didn't respect him in life, have some respect for the feelings of his loved ones now he has gone.

i never had any problem with him, in fact if we had met in person, i am sure we would have enjoyed a good laugh about one or two things.
You shpuld never judge anyone on their internet posts, the internet has limitations as regards communication.

The Muskets had it right, but they were the ones blocked for sniping at him. He accused them of libel, but in fact I think they were reporting on issues that made it to the local newspapers. There are a lot of bodies along the way regarding our old friend Ake. He was sometimes overt, sometimes sly, but he could never bite his tongue and stop trashing threads to keep making his point. His views of homosexuality and American politics, among other things, were posted to upset discussions.

There was a period of detente I can identify in my messages from him around 2014-15 when his wife was ill, but once she was in the nursing home and after her passing and he was on his own he seems to have gone a bit nuts on the threads. This is just an observation, whether correlation or causation I can't say.

”The Muskets had it right, but they were the ones blocked for sniping at him.”

I miss The Muskets on the forum (although I see one of them most Monday evenings at a local Folk/Acoustic Music Club). I haven’t missed Ake in the slightest, although I take no pleasure from his demise - death is always a sad event, no matter whose it may be.

Thx, Stilly River Sage, I liked that about him having lost a few fingernail playing with large field stones myself.

It's a skill being able to read rocks and knowing where they fit.
