The guy from the Levi's launderette advert has died. He was only 59. Must have been his bad jeans.

I have to admit I wouldn't have known who that was without it being in the news today.

Just looking at this article. Sorry to be shallow, but real ugly fuckers, the Rolling Stones. Quite scary as well.

Most bands in the 60s were ugly fuckers. It's almost as if in those days it was the actual music that mattered rather than their look. Thank God we've come so far since then.

John Challis too (Boycie on Only Fools and Horses). A bit psychopathic to mention Jimmy Greaves and not him.

I felt they deserved seperated posts.
Plus he wasn't a prolific goalscorer in the sixties and early seventies

True - he scored most of his goals in the eighties and early nineties.

Jimmy Greaves was one of those people who I was never quite sure whether he was laready dead or not, as he'd been in the news multiple times for having pretty bad health problems. It was like when Dudley Moore died. Again?

Anyone under 50 would probably remember Jimmy for his punditry.
Towards the end of his playing career in the mid to late seventies he was heavily on the booze so its pretty remarkable he made irmt to 81
George best barely reached 60
