      Freddie Starr has passed away according to reports
      "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

          He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                            Confirmed now. RIP Brendan

                            He knew our next door neighbours when I was growing up, and played guitar/songs at sessions in our house a couple of times before he was famous. He always seemed like a nice, down to earth guy
