Ha ha What a great dancer :shock: I reckon if you sang the beginning of that jingle to anyone my age or above, they'd be guaranteed to complete it. I'm singing it now!

That was probably his one saving grace although I'm sure I've heard someone else do it better.

RIP Richard Griffiths, a wonderful actor. I once met him backstage after seeing him in the brilliant The History Boys and he was a charming, charming man. :(

His attachment to the bottle and, eventually, his cocaine use, caused him to miss so many concerts that he earned the nickname No-Show Jones.He co-wrote a song titled "No show Jones",with which he would open many of his concerts.

He was also, more kindly, called The Possum.
