So farewell then, Charlie Drake.

That song was one of the first records I bought.

It is customary to say something kind about the recently departed.

Sorry, couldn't stand him.

Well at least he dissapeared with dignity intact, he knew when to pack it in,unlike that living fossil Brucie.

I won't hear one bad word said against either of them--------a 1000 word essay would be fine though. :E

His humour is understandably seen as old fashioned and unsophisticated considering his heyday was in the 60s and 70s.

I personally never found him that funny but he gave many people much pleasure, my parents loved him in 'The Worker?' with Henry Magee.

Anyone else remember 'Mick and Montmorency'? Or am I just reeeeally old?





RIP, Charlie.
