Same here, always wanted to meet her...never quite understood why a girl from the backstreets of Naples was called Marie Claire though...

Although he denied it the song was thought to be loosely based on the life of Sophia Loren.

Mott the Hoople.

Enormously sad that our bass player Pete Overend Watts passed away this weekend.
An eccentric, lovely man.
On stage a rock 'n' roll star, off it a walker. In 2008 (if memory serves) he walked from Land's End to John O' Groats in a pretty decent time.
He loved Mott and they couldn't have been what they were without him.
He wasn't a 'famous' musician, but he was a good one and a great character and beautiful person.

"And in the end I lost a friend, I feel so sad.."

Thank you Pete.

Sad News that Sir John Hurt has died at the age of 77 after a battle with cancer.

I especially loved him as Max in Midnight Express.

He was also great on the radio in Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell

...which allows me to say Alexander Chancellor, one time editor of the Spectator who thought up the Low Life column which in tern gave us the phrase "Jeffrey Bernard is unwell"

RIP, a fine actor and seemingly a very nice chap. Thought he was the absolute perfect Winston Smith in 1984, I can't reread that now without a picture of him (and Burton) in my mind's eye. Saw him eighteen months ago reading extracts from Henry V at the Proms to go with Walton's film score; enjoyed him more than the music to be honest.

Saw him in the Cherry Orchard at Oxford Playhouse in the 80s. True to form he was having a beer and a fag in the pub before hand so got his autograph for my friend.

Sometimes it is in the minor roles or the (unjustly) panned films that the best work is done: I am still haunted by his role in Heaven's Gate.

Desmond Carrington, one of the great voices of radio.
He retired last year due to ill health, and a tribute to his long career in radio was pre-planned to be aired last night at 10pm, then just two hours before, his passing was announced...Bye, just now

Shame. Met her at a party once and she was a lot more intelligent and down to earth than one might have expected from her press image. RIP.

A lot of last year's and this year's celebrity casualties have been cocaine enthusiasts.

I'm glad I could never much afford it.

Someone in the Speccie Steveo (probably Liddle), said that on average, in terms of the Grim Reaper, Cocaine abuse catches up with you in your 40s/50s and the sauce 50s/60s.
