And even older ones...............Ginger Springer, The Army Game !

Cant believe I vaguely remember this, was only 5yrs old when The Army Game was on...

Then in my mind associated Bootsie and Snudge to it, cant believe those names were still lurking in my head since childhood..

turns out Bootsie and Snudge was indeed a spin off from The Army Game.. Doubt if many of the cast are still around , if any at all, household names though, proper blasts from the past.

Flipping heck I'm old ain't I?

I can imagine the conspiracy theorists having a field day with this one, no doubt they think he was shot down to stop him revealing the truth. 😂

Pete Mitchell, DJ died at 61 on Thursday. Used to love his breakfast show with Geoff Lloyd (called Pete and Geoff of course!) on Virgin Radio from January 2003-December 2005. Also a presenter on BBC Radio 6, and a big advocate of the "Madchester" scene. RIP.

That is sad news - he always seemed so full of life even at his age whenever I`ve heard him interviewed. I wonder if he did find a home for his vast collection of theatre and music hall memorabilia before he passed - I know he was trying very hard to donate it `to the nation` but was struggling to find somewhere that had the room as there was so much of it!

RIP, had a very varied career and easily straddled many musical genres.   I remember when he had his first UK hit with his band The First Edition, which is still probably my favourite song of all of his catalogue, with very powerful lyrics, in which he sang:-

"But it won't be long, I've heard them say, until I'm not around
Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town"

Well he managed another 51 years after that, which isn't bad going.  

Another icon lost to us.

`It wasn`t me that started that old crazy Asian war`. 

The lament for a whole American generation many of whom are still dealing with the aftermath of even now.

Genesis P. Orridge aged 70 from leukaemia.

Not everyone`s cup of tea but he led a very interesting life to say the least.

This one passed me by.  Absolutely mad career / life

Was never into TG or Psychic TV but one of my older sisters boy friends was a massive fan - he was a bit odd himself mind

A man who always lived true to the 3 rules of comedy:

1. A fat man is funny.
2. A man in a dress is funny.
3. A fat man in a dress is as funny as funny can get.

Moved in Port Zed a few years back.

Patsy, his missus, is distantly related to the Robbo family.

Before his heart got really bad, I think he made one or two forays to Ashton Gate.

I'm claiming him as "one of our own". Well, us and Man City.

I met him at the gate back in the 80’s and asked him what he was doing watching knowing he was a Man City supporter. His response “my doctor told me to keep away from football hence why I’m here” priceless. RIP Eddie.

He looked proper frail after his heart attack. 

Looks like he moved from CC lane down to above Bottlinos etc.
