That's sad news.

His '13 steps' is a great book, filled with beautiful ideas and written in a good tongue in cheek style.

Tony Corinda laid the foundation stone that so many mentalists built their lives upon. A great loss to the mentalist community but an eternal contribution to the art.

RIP Tony.

13 Steps must be the most well known book on mentalism of all time.

It is very sad news indeed. It might be me showing my age but I remember as a kid when the Magic bug bit going into Dick Chavel's Magic shop in Tottenham Court Road, London when Corinda was working there, then later he took it over. I remember buying from him the individual steps as they were published from him.

It use to be great living in London at the time, visiting all the magic shops all in one day. Corinda was less than five minutes walk from Davenports. I also use to go up to Harry Stanleys in Brewer Street, Ken Brooks Magic Place, Wardour Street, Oscar Oswald in Great Pultney street, then a trek up to Ron MacMillions in Leather Lane.

Those were the days, what memories!!!

May Corinda's dear soul rest in peace.

I heard from someone that would know that Tony Corinda used to read the magic Café right up to his last days. When everyone was talking about him he was actually reading what was said, rolling his eyes, and sending messages to his friends saying "look what rubbish they are saying about me now!"

He is probably reading what I am saying now from another place. Rest in Peace, Tony.

What sad news to have learned of Tony Corinda's recent passing.

The first mentalism book recommenced to me by my mentor was the "13 Steps" book. Mr. Corinda was a visionary and a living legend. His memory and his contribution to mentalism will long endure.

To quote Vlad77 (Cafe member): "May his memory be eternal".
Magic is a vanishing Art.

It may be disrespectful for me to say so but I get a feeling that Tony is reading this from wherever he is and scoffing in a cynical manner at the sentiments expressed. I knew him reasonably well. He couldn't stand magicians except for a few old friends. He kept well away from the magic community and abhored visitors. If you phoned the great man and asked for a meeting you would be turned down. Many a prominent mentalist has been given the brush off by Tony.

I am amused to report that a famous mentalist turned up at his door to pay homage. He knocked and knocked on the door and rang the bell several times. Then he gave up and left. He had no idea that Corinda was looking out the window at him and waiting for him to go away.

He was actually not a recluse at all. He was in fact very sociable. But not to magicians or mentalists. I can just see him smirking at all the comments here.

Rest in peace, Tony. I am glad this thread is giving you a good laugh.

The world is now a much smaller place. A job well done Tony. Would that we could all leave such a big mark in this world. R.I.P.

Edud,

"It may be disrespectful for me to say so but..."

"I am amused to report that..."

"I can just see him smirking at all the comments here."

"Rest in peace, Tony. I am glad this thread is giving you a good laugh."

Your instinct and inclination was correct Your comments were disrespectful and did nothing to honor or enhance the memory of Mr. Corinda. And, quite frankly, it did nothing to enhance your reputation in the magic or mentalism community.

That said, your post accomplished three things for certain:

One, it placed your disparaging comments about Mr. Corinda's alleged conduct out on a public forum and in the most inappropriate place possible--namely, in a thread by magicians and mentalist who are attempting to honor and eulogize Mr. Corinda, and,

Two, it allowed you to anonymously make your snarky comments with absolutely no substantiation of the allegations--thereby preventing the readers from being able to properly evaluate such comments in the context of who you are and the proper weight to give such comments, and,

Three, you were able to raise your Café posts total up to 56. I cannot wait to read post number 57.

Mike
