    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Raymond Kopa died over a week ago but I only heard it on Saturday.
    He had some career and seemed to be a lovely man too.

    He always beat me at Subbuteo, cos he flicked to kick and I didn't know.

    Was still playing up to what - last year?

    One of the most influential people ever in terms of shaping popular culture, and that's one hell of a claim to fame.

    Though not sure if he'd have done it were it not for that mysterious phone call from his cousin, Marvin.

    One of the greatest a*seholes to ever step onto a stage, but nobody can doubt the legacy he's left behind in terms of his music alone.

    A story about how he almost refused to play in Letterkenny in 2008 because the wrong type of Mercedes picked him and his wife up from Dublin airport sums up just how much of a tit he was, but everyone who has ever held a guitar has tried to either mimic his famous duck walk, or tried to play that opening riff from Johnny Be Goode at some point.

    A proper legend of the game.
