Like he’s never been gone


Did you catch that BBC4 programme about Billy Fury? I guess it’ll be on IPlayer. It was fabulous – great songs, great singer. MRA was entranced (she saw him in Great Yarmouth, early 60s) – all the way to Paradise.

  3. I saw Billy at the Portsmouth Guildhall in the sixties, he was not well on the night and had to sit on a stool for the entire performance, still one of my favourites.
