Rare interview of him in Tony Palmer's series on popular music.

Highly recommend ^, it looks a bit ropey as masters haven't aged well, nor has some of the dated views but packed full of rare footage/performances.

Gutted to hear about Phil Asher. Definitely had a big impact on me during the early noughties in his various aliases. Super nice chap by all accounts, may he rest in peace.

So so sad. Met him at a Southport and he was spot on. Cool guy, he was in a red firebird trackie and flat hat and was asking who was playing (it was Paul trouble).

Phil got on 5 mins after and played that phreeky mf track by Mike dunn and the whole place went mental. It was 2 o clock in the afternoon in Butlins and I’ve never seen nothing like it since

RIP

‘ King had been hospitalized with Covid-19 in late December at Cedars-Sinai, a source close to the family said at the time.He battled a number of health problems over the years, suffering several heart attacks. In 1987, he underwent quintuple bypass surgery, inspiring him to establish the Larry King Cardiac Foundation to provide assistance to those without insurance.More recently, King revealed in 2017 that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer and successfully underwent surgery to treat it. He also underwent a procedure in 2019 to address angina.’

Wow.

He’s the most deadest dead man of the year so far.

You're definitely a dick and most likely a pussy if that's any help?
