andypop's daughter has written a very moving entry about her dad. It looks like he's never going to get better.

andypop was the second LJ person I ever met. He came to a gig Patsington played at the Notting Hill Arts Club about two years ago, where I'd arranged to meet yiskah (making her the first LJ person I ever met!). It was a fantastic gig (missbassey had come up from the western wilds for the occasion). Andy recognised Jess's eyebrows from her icon (yes, really), and the three of us hung out for a while, which was great fun. He was really cool and friendly and I liked him a lot - how could I not like a funny bloke who liked feminist rock and comic books? Last year we talked about bringing his band over for Ladyfest, but mostly thanks to my incompetence, we never fixed it up. Although we exchanged many LJ comments over the next year, I never met him in person again. I thought I'd see him in London next month - this is the last comment he left here</a>. Now it looks like I never will.

There are tears running down my face as I write this.

I just keep thinking of Sophie looking at her dad, there-but-not-there in an intensive care bed - it's so like what happened with my mum. I never met Andy in person but he was one of the first people I met through LJ and I like him such a lot - what a smart, witty, kind, talented man.

He is an amazing person, one of the rare ones who manages to combine intelligence and creativity with being genuinely lovely. So many people have posted about him since the accident, and I hope he knows how widely known and loved he is.

This year's been a tough one for so many people, hasn't it?
