total downer, knew he had cancer but didn't know it'd come to that, or at least not so soon, seemed to still be planning events and shit...total legend though

I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the first time
I never think about the last

bit gutted about this. frank was blimmin' brilliant. hadn't even heard he was suffering from cancer though.

Re: Bloody hell! "_____ ________" is dead (an occasional series)

He's been talking about being ill on Twitter for a while. Really sad though.

Totally gutted, I does make me wonder if little frank will carry on tho'?

Re: Bloody hell! "_____ ________" is dead (an occasional series)

Sad.  He used to be on TV quite a bit when I was younger and I saw him opening for Billy Childish a couple of times last year.

Can you really be sure of the goddamn time of day?
