Max Bygraves

I don't know why I am writing this when there is so much else to write about.

Max Bygraves has died. Maybe you've never heard of him. If so, I can't feel that you are unfortunate.

My colleague Clive Fencott could do quite a good impression of him.

His agent, Bygraves', says: “We have lost one of the best entertainers that Britain has ever produced".

That's what got me writing. Think about what he says and then consider: Bygraves was 89; had had Alzheimer's for at least 5 years; and he lived in Australia...

I think we had lost him already, however good he was.
