George Melly dies aged 80.

Post by fiona »

The jazz singer died at his home aged 80 yesterday. Despite suffering from lung cancer and a form of dementia for some time, he continued to perform in his own inimitable style.

With his own style of humour he hung a sign up beside his bed saying "Don't ask me how I feel. I'm dying!!" .
I'm not going to let my history pull me down and hold me back, you see.

How sad...

He was such a funny man who had such a talent for music and for making people laugh with his wry humour. His music will be missed for those of jazz lovers.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way!
