    His legendary longtime "spat" with Morecambe and Wise was hilarious.

    Nothing posted about Maurice Setters that I could find. Part of the successful team with Big Jack both with Ireland and Sheffield Wednesday. I know Keane was scathing about him but that goes with out saying but he is part of that iconic duo and deserves a mention in my opinion. RIP Maurice, just a short time after your friend Jack.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Can I say farewell to Freddie Mercury again? I watched Bohemian Rhapsody last night and while I was disappointed in the movie, it made me sad for Freddie. He deserved to spend more time on the stage, where he felt loved, and where he excelled.

    Jaysus - I saw this on the feed and thought it was the thread about Ezeikial. I know he wound some people up, but I was thinking that was a little over the top as a reaction all the same!
