Jim who was best man at our wedding passed away last week, I'd been meaning to call him and arrange a beer or three for ages, too late now. If you've got a mate you haven't seen for too long, give 'em a call, don't leave it like I did. Gutted.

Truly dreadful.

Sad news. He was my favourite singer of that style by a long way...

One of my Mam's favourite's, and as such I grew up listening to his music, lovely voice, she would be very upset if she was still alive, as it is I hope she has a front row seat at the Pearly Gates when he is let in.

Andy Williams, aged 84.


It took me a long time to really appreciate what a fine singer Andy Williams was.

Like many of the crooners, I didn't want to listen to them when I was younger, but your tastes tend to widen over time.

A couple of years ago I saw a programme featuring Andy Williams duetting with a lot of well known performers that had been taken from his TV show over the years. The artistry and humour in those performance were really eye-opening, and if the show comes on again I would strongly recommend it.

There's a nice little piece in the Telegraph obituary about his early solo career.

"Striking out on his own proved a lonely and financially precarious experience for Andy; before striking success he endured such hardship that at one point he was sharing tins of pet food with his dog. “It didn’t taste that bad when you heated it up, actually,” he recalled, “just like meat and gravy.”

Can always remember 'home loving man' being played on the radio when I was about 4 or 5.

A wonderful singer, even if the music may not be to your taste. Terrific tone, phrasing and breath control allowed him to bring the best out of the songs. A quick glance at any Andy Williams compilation will remind you just how many huge hits he had.

I remember watching it and there was a bear or something that used to knock on the door asking for cookies? I used to be in hysterics over it.

A former workmate went on the work's annual day out to Haydock Park races recently and then on to a nightclub. Going downstairs in the nightclub, he stumbled on the last five steps and died as a result of head injuries. Tragic and hard to take in just now. He was still a keen footballer at the age of 53.

frank wilson, soul legend and wigan casino regular.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.
