Aw Man! Rik Mayall has died. Star of The Young Ones, Bottom, New Statesman.
I feel like a big chunk of my youth has just been snatched away.

Yeah Bad News. "You didn't let the dog in for free,did you"? absolutely nailed it. It's such a shock he has gone. No details yet apart from confirmation by his manager but he was only 56.

damn, 56. far too young to be dying. such a shame.

Bad news was sooo excellent, I think colin grigson was my favourite rik mayall character. Although I do still rip off ade edmonsons line from bad news whenever someone asks me if im any good on the guitar I just reply with the vim fuego line.....
" I could play "Stairway To Heaven" when I was 12. Jimmy Page didn't actually write it until he was 22. I think that says it all" cool.gif

Oh yes. Killer line "Jimmy Page didn't actually write it until he was 22". One of the best Tap type programmes around. Particularly liked their "tour". One night in Grantham and The drummer moaning about getting only one sausage with his chips at the motorway services. I haven't felt so bad about a comics death since Peter Cook bought the farm. It's terribly sad.
