Frank Sidebottom RIP.

Filed under: Memories — Administrator @ 7:34 pm

Dear Boys,

the death was announced today of comedian Chris Sievey, better known for his character Frank Sidebottom.

I only saw Frank Sidebottom on video – I did have a chance to see him live when I was student at the Poly of Wales but my mum and dad came down for a few days in Wales.

This was in the days before mobile phones and they had no way of getting hold of me so they had come down the day before and we met at Trefforest train station at 11am. I wasn’t sure what time they would want to be getting off so I didn’t get a ticket to see Frank.

Grandma Audrey had just had a scan and her cancer was back in remission, which was always nice to hear.

By the time my parents and Suzy the dog left it was only early evening. Unfortunately all the tickets had been sold and I had a night in on my own. The lads told me he was really funny.
