RIP Sir Jimmy :(
« on: October 29, 2011, 12:36:38 PM »

Sir Jimmy Savile was a legend in his own right.  He passed away today.

Quote
Savile, who was one of the most famous names on British TV and radio in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, died Today.

Police said they were called to his home in Leeds, but that there was nothing suspicious about his death.

His family programme, Jim'll Fix It, drew in huge audiences and the programme received 20,000 letters a week at the height of its popularity.

How true it all is I don't know but he appears to have introduced discotheques to the UK. That is quite a major cultural landmark regardless of the other stuff he did.

He was an interesting guy.
I spent some time with him when we both were prisoners guests at the same health spa (Champneys) back in the 70's

Hmm...

Just googled Champneys.

Took a look at their brochure too.

Somehow, I don't think I'd mind a brief incarceration there... :P
