Sunday 09:02 GMT

“The solution would be to move ships a little bit offshore into deeper waters less favoured by whales,” he said from the Scottish island of Coll, where he was observing minke whales and dolphins last week.

For sperm whales, death by collision is by far the most painful, he claims, with propellers often leaving the animals torn and gashed. “We don’t know how this latest incident occurred,” he sighs, dispelling reports that huge amounts of plastic had been found in the mammal’s digestive tract.

Guns N’ Roses Rakes in Millions on Reunion Tour, but It’s Missing ‘Mr. Invisible’

Sunday 18:11 GMT

At the height of Guns N’ Roses’ fame, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin cut such an understated figure that lead singer Axl Rose referred to him as “Mr. Invisible.”

The band he formed after Guns N’ Roses, the Ju Ju Hounds, broke up after one album, and his solo efforts have flown under the radar, in part because he doesn’t tour. His low profile and absence from a reunion tour for a group he helped found, however, mystify his fans and associates.
