Always enjoyed Sodbury’s Forsyth anecdote involving a big curtain, the Natural History museum & a rush to the pub.
I can just imagine Brucie saying today ‘C’mon dollies, do your dealing!’
Twitter would fucking melt.
RIP Bruce Forsyth.
I never ever understood his popularity.
I’m with you. While he was always thereand I enjoyed some of the shows, I never really got him.
I think that much of the popularity of prime time TV presenters is simply familiarity - see them enough and people think they’re friends.
That’s why I think that so many are overpaid: the BBC can easily create new ones by simply giving them enough airtime, so they become familiar and popular. I don’t deny that many have real talent, but they are far from unique in that respect.
Anyway off topic, it’s always sad when anyone dies but Brucie had a good life, did well and made it to a good age. What more can you ask for?
Certainly wasn’t my cup of tea. Didn’t like his style at all.
As Adam said, he had a good life.
Can’t argue with that.
He was a childhood favourite. His partnership with Dean Martin was great. Although in later years his humour was controversial…
TBH, I didn’t know he was still alive…
Thank you. Would not have heard otherwise. Do not believe hands and piano sounds, but ‘let there be love’
is a message for all. Always takes a great female vocalist to chat back.
Walter Becker. Just 67 . http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-41140441
Whether or not you liked their stuff (and some people really didn’t) Steely Dan did bring a lot of pleasure to a lot of people. Me included.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
Yeah, Walter Becker. A legend and a great, for me.
Lovely guitar solo here…
A great for me too.
