On BBC 4 tonight at 10..

A bevy of household names from the worlds of stand-up comedy, music and culture - including Bill Bailey and Arctic Monkeys front man Alex Turner - all pay homage to the poet John Cooper Clarke.

They describe him as a dynamic force who remains as relevant today as he ever was, as subsequent generations cite him as a significant influence on their lives, careers and styles.

Wasn't it just,Raver?........Very Happy I'm so pleased, for him, that he managed to overcome his addiction ....would have been tragic to have lost such a wit before his time.

Thanks for the link...

John Cooper Clarke standing in for Jarvis Cocker on 6 Music, a couple of weeks ago, played an Arthur Alexander record then when it had finished said Arthur had sadly died a couple of weeks ago.....perhaps in his world ...Cool Laughing back in the real world Arthur died in 1993.

Here he is on Newsnight (near the end) a couple of weeks ago agreeing with something Michael Gove said!
