So farewell, then
Unusually, I haven't seen any posts on my f-list about the death of George Melly. What with all the casting kerfuffle for Christmas and the next season of Doctor Who, it's a shame that it came back to our screens too late for Melly to provide a guest appearance as, say, Borusa, or a mad evil genius intent on ruling the Universe (obviously the eye-patch would help there).

I have a vague - very vague - memory of yelling at George Melly. He was playing a ball at Warwick Uni and I was exceedingly drunk. Happily (for my guilt/shame levels) I cannot remember what it was I was yelling.

He'll be missed. There are few people in any generation who are as completely and fearlessly themselves as he was.

Indeed, someone for whom the words "showman" or "celebrity" seem genuinely appropriate.
