R.I.P. Max, another of the old Greats gone!

I went to see him on stage in Glasgow many a time and you always got your money's worth. A true all round entertainer for the whole family.

he was a true professional, I was just listening to his son on the radio and he described his dad as "a great mate" which is a lovely tribute. Most current entertainers are 3rd rate in comparison.

I think I have probably mentioned this before on here. But I tell my kids that my claim to fame is that I used to sit and have lunch every day for about a month with Max Byegraves. I was working in the film studio on the film "The Cockleshell Hero's" and he was working on a film at the same time. I don't think he ever encountered servicemen like us before and he was great with us all. He was a nice guy. RIP Max!

One has to wonder about some of the adverts that appear on this site. As I type this I am looking between the last posting and the new post field to see adverts like: "Find Max Bygraves Died Here And Compare Offers From 1000s of Shops" and "All About Death In Australia Death In Australia in One Site!".

I'm not blaming PCA, but I have seen adverts in better taste!


BTW, there are those who will be missed, and those who wont. Max falls into the former catagory.

Thats because you're not dead yet.

"I'm a pink toothbrush, you're a blue toothbrush" & "You need hands" will always be in my memory thanks to Max. BYE BYE r.i.p.

Do you know what? I was just thinking that Aitchbee would come up with a song. I even named the song in my head "I'm a pink toothbrush etc.". Great stuff Aitch....They don't make 'em like that any more.

Bing.alau I particularly liked him singing,

'Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellenbogen by the Sea' as you say *They don't make 'em like that any more" ;o}}
