The death of George Melly has just been announced.

and obituary http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/3493375.stm

I wasn't a fan, but he was amusing, in small doses, and some of his more trad jazz performances (and his theme song to A Bit Of A Do) were memorable.

Another giant of the music world to be missed.

A very sad day. Like RockitRon I wouldn't have said that I was a huge fan of George Melly's music but I derived great pleasure from his books over several decades. And I loved the contradiction between his seemingly wild life and cultured speaking voice.

A great miss. My sympathy to his family.

Ian.
