Dean Ford, lead singer with the Scottish band Marmalade dies aged 72...

Quote:
Dean Ford, lead singer of the Scottish group Marmalade, has died at the age of 72.

The band, from Glasgow, were best known for reaching number one in 1969 with their cover version of The Beatles "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da".

They had another 10 singles, including "Reflections of My Life" and "Rainbow", both of which Ford wrote.

On Facebook his daughter called him "an amazing man, a gentle soul and extremely talented musician".

Born Thomas McAleese in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, Ford co-founded Marmalade, first known as The Gaylords, in Glasgow in 1961.

Their song I See The Rain was praised by Jimi Hendrix as the "best cut of 1967".

The band went on to become the first Scottish band to have a UK number one hit. To celebrate they appeared on Top of the Pops wearing kilts.

Later that year "Reflections of My Life" made it into the top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic.

The band toured with The Who, duetted with Bobbie Gentry and had six top 10 singles, before Ford quit the band in 1975.

He moved to Los Angeles and became a limousine driver for Michael Jackson and Bob Dylan.

He continued recording and in two months ago he released a 30-track album called "My Scottish Heart".

Bob Einstein, comedian and actor known for 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' dead at 76

When I first saw the headline I was like...meh......I was no "Curb Your Enthusiasm" fan and can honestly say that I did not recognize the name "Bob Einstein".....but then I started to read the article and......


Damn....this was Super Dave Osborne.




RIP Super Dave. :(

RIP.
I remember him all the way back to Officer Judy on the Smothers Brothers.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0251872/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Brother of Albert Brooks. Son of Harry Parke.

Harry went out in a true show biz fashion:
Died at the dais only moments after he had sat down from his comedic presentation at a Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz Friar's Roast. When Milton Berle, seated next to him, shouted, "Is there a doctor in the house?" the audience laughed, not yet realizing that Berle was serious.
When he slumped down onto Milton Berle's lap after he had the heart attack from which he died moments later, Berle directed crooner Tony Martin to sing, attempting to divert the crowd. Martin's unfortunate song choice was "There's No Tomorrow".

Maybe ABrad remembers Harry Parke's character Parkyakarkus?

I think that my first Super Dave experience was seeing him on Letterman when I was back in college.

Had a frat mate that thought everything Super Dave did was legit (or maybe my frat mate was always too drunk to notice.

Most of you on here probably won't know who this is (unless you saw him in one of is Carry On appearances), but Windsor Davis has died aged 88...

Quote:
Actor and star of It Ain't Half Hot Mum, Windsor Davies, has died.

Davies, 88, who was best known as the sergeant major in the TV series, died on Thursday, his family said.

Born in Canning Town, London, he returned to his father's home village, Nant-y-Moel in Bridgend county, when World War Two broke out.

His daughter Jane Davies said he and her mother, who died in September, left a family "who will all remember them with love, laughter and gratitude".

The couple, who were married for 62 years, had retired to France. They had five children.

It Ain't Half Hot Mum co-star Melvyn Hayes, who played Gunner/Bombardier Gloria Beaumont, called him "one of the good guys".

Paying tribute to Davies, he said: "I considered him my best friend, even though we hadn't been in contact for many years.

"To work with him was a pleasure, a sheer delight because he was so generous in his work.

"You couldn't buy him a drink because you'd go into a public house and they'd say 'Windsor has put some money behind the counter for you'.

"He was nothing like the character he played - he was a charming, quietly-spoken, gentle human being."

Davies and It Ain't Half Hot Mum co-star Don Estelle also enjoyed a number one hit in 1975 when they recorded a version of Whispering Grass in character, a novelty hit which sold more than one million copies.

Blackadder star Sir Tony Robinson paid tribute to Davies by quoting lyrics from Whispering Grass, while Downton Abbey actor Paul Putner said he was a "gifted actor" and "one of most generous, lovely blokes you could ever wish to meet".

'Allo 'Allo and Emmerdale star Vicki Michelle shared a picture of herself with Davies and tweeted he was one of her "favourite people", and a "genuinely lovely generous man" with a "huge presence and a huge heart".

The Veterans Charity tweeted: "RIP Windsor Davies, a National Serviceman who served in Egypt and Libya with the East Surrey Regiment."

Davies also starred alongside Donald Sinden as two rival antique dealers in the long-running ITV sitcom Never The Twain.

Although overshadowed by It Ain't Half Hot Mum, it ran for more than 60 episodes.

In 1978, Davies also featured in one-off BBC drama Grand Slam, which gained cult status and was still fondly remembered years later - gaining a new lease of life with a DVD release.

Davies, who retired from acting in his 70s, was also the voice of Sergeant Major Zero in the 1980s sci-fi series Terrahawks. As well as stage appearances, he had roles in more than 20 films, including two Carry Ons.

But he will be remembered most fondly for playing Battery Sergeant Major "Shut Up" Williams in It Ain't Half Hot Mum, which ran for 56 episodes between 1974 and 1981.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-46931129

He was great playing the hard-nosed Sgt Major Williams who was forced to babysit a Royal Artillery concert party in the closing months of WW2.
