One of my rock heroes.  There's probably only Jerry Lee left.  Last time I saw him on TV he didn't look so spry either.  Jerry Lee,  Little Richard, Chuck Berry,  Elvis, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly were the true Kings of Rock and Roll.  Without them there'd have been no Stones or Beatles.

I saw Jerry Lee Lewis at the New Orleans Jazz Festival a few years ago and he was brilliant although he only did about 30 minutes. I couldn't believe many 30 and 40 year olds near us saying they'd no idea who he was!!

Re Little Richard there was a reference in the great Times obituary to him being ambisexual and he had a threesome with Buddy Holly and another unnamed  person . What a life!!

People nowadays think living the Rock n Roll lifestyles is just about how much cocaine they can snort, the guys who were in the Rock n Roll era, really knew how to party safely. That's why many of the greats survived until they were 60, 70, 80. IMO

They're not important until you're not getting enough.

85 Jerry Lee!  Greatest white rocker of the lot.  His version of What'd I Say is better than the Ray Charles original IMO.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I only discovered them as a live band a few years ago. May, Dick Taylor and three younger guys; absolutely fantastic. Saw them a bunch of times in those few years. They finished at the end of last year, and reading between the lines I think it was due to Phil's failing health. 

I last saw Phil and Dick make a guest appearance with Arthur Brown in January. Phil sounded as good as he has in the times I saw him, but it was noticeable he was being helped on and off stage.

Another Mighty White taken by the a Good Lord.

I can only imagine that the a Good Lord wanted to strengthen the defence in his team of all white so took Norman and Trevor.  This now means that the Good Lord can make a tactical change and move John Charles up front.

I've only just discovered he' died. I'm not much of a soccer fan, but always look for Leeds's result.  This goal epitomised Cherry's never say die attitude.

Yeah.... I realised my faux pas over the weekend. 

When I saw pretty things I read "only ones" for some reason and I've been telling folk peter perrett had died..... 

Looking a bit of a pil lock.?

Isn't it? I still get goose bumps whenever I play it even after all these (42!) years.

Very sad to hear of the death of Michael Angelis , a top class actor who i always thought added greatly to anything he appeared in .

I know very, very little about films and tv, but Michael Angelis left a big impression on me as a youngster.

Boys from the Blackstuff was a smack-in-the-chops kind of tv show when I was maybe 12 or 13 years old, a real eye-opener in the unforgettable days of Thatcherism. But what I really remember Angelis for was a screenplay, also by Alan Bleasedale I think, called No Surrender, which I didn't watch until I was a politicised student at the end of the 80s. I watched it over and over and loved the characters, especially Angelis as the nightclub manager.

And, to bouncer Bernard Hill: "You shouldn't judge a book by its cover you know"

Bouncer: "I do, I can't read".
