    RIP Andre Previn.

    Doubt most of us would have ever heard of him if it wasn't for the Morecambe and Wise show but there you go.

    RIP Scott Walker.
    My dad was a big fan of his and had is Readers Digest box collection lol, you always knew once you was a part of my dads Readers Digest box collection you had made it.
    Needless to say I've heard Scott Walker songs probably a lot more than a fella of my age should but what a great voice.

    It is a shame as he was a smashing fella.

    I would have put him in the 'Tenuous links to famous people' thread but I'd forgot all about it until I just saw your post.

    In the late 70's and early 80's I used to work in a clothes warehouse part time when I was about 14/15 years old while at school, Tommy was a regular customer as he used to have a market stall or shop in Liverpool and we used to chat quite regular, not much football but what the hot clothing lines were lol.

    He was a smashing fella and completely different from what I expected after watching him destroy players on the pitch lol, very polite and never swore in my presence (probably because I was only a kid at the time).
    Even though he had retired he was still built like a brick shithouse with a pot marked face and a head like a bulldog, it was quite easy to see how he intimidated players lol.

    RIP Tommy.

    That's brilliant to read, Slick.

    Him, Steve Highway, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan are the reason i started supporting Liverpool.
    Couldn't beat watching Hereford Utd as a kid and then jumping in the car after the match and putting sports report on the radio to find out how many Liverpool had won by.
    A brilliant defender. He rarely scored but that was some header against Monchengladbach

    I think most Englishmen were Liverpool fans in those days Punt indirectly, from what I recall watching Liverpool in Europe was like watching England because they were an English team and we used to shout them on no matter who you supported United fans included.

    How times have fcuking changed:lol

    I used to like Freddie when he was at his peak in the 70's and early 80's but his style soon dated with the advent of alternative and pc comedy as it did to a lot of comedians of his ilk.

    He seemed to go down hill after being accused of being a sex pest where he was found not guilty but seemed to go into himself after that and never seen again.

    RIP Freddie.

    I thought he was funny in my early days but he turned into a bit of a prick later on.

    It was good to see him win The National. .
