Chris Hemblade

I was very sorry to hear of the death of Chris Hemblade. I hadn't seen him in some years but he was the nicest of chaps, irrepressibly chipper and always fun to work with/for. I knew him best when he was the Assistant Editor at Empire, while I was doing my stint in LA as its US Editor. I remember an entertaining night out in Hollywood when the Empire gang came over and then, a few years later, a great lunch with him in New York. He was the first person I ever knew to wear a pinstriped suit jacket with jeans. One of life's good guys.
