Gordon Bennett,how many music stars all in the space of a week or so?
I fully agree with Sam Tyler,I can't listen to 'Ace Of Spades' without thinking 'The Young Ones'.Now Motorhead aren't really my thing but Lemmy was,and always will be,a legend.Almost like an approachable Keith Richards.He was a real geezer,God Bless.A friend of mine met him around 10 years back when Motorhead played at Rock City here in Nottingham.Lemmy was just stood in one of the local pubs in town having a few pints,very,very approachable and had lots of time for the punters.Now THAT is how you want your idols,isn't it?
"I'm playing all the right notes.But not necessarily in the right order."
I remember listening to Junior Choice on the radio, with the "Hello Darling" jingle favourite that was constantly requested. Amazingly he was still presenting this show over Christmas on Radio 2. A big personality on both radio and tv, I remember Stewpot presenting Crackerjack and Top Of The Pops. He was one of the original Radio 1 DJ's.
He suffered a stroke a few days ago and died in hospital in Bournemouth aged 74.
I'm going to say this once, and once only Gene. Stay out of Camberwick Green!
