RIP Frank Sidebottom (Chris Sievey)

"Chris Sievey, who has died at the age of 54, was the man behind comedy cult icon Frank Sidebottom.

The papier-macheaded Frank hit the heights of fame during the 'Madchester' music period.

Instantly recognisable, his keyboard ditties and larger-than-life personality were a hit on the late 80s comedy circuit."

There was a rumour he was replacing Christine Bleakley on The One Show.

Cancer Skusey
He announced in May that he had been diagnosed with cancer and had been doing shows to raise money for his treatment.
His last public appearance came on the opening day of the 2010 World Cup, when he staged a show at The Salutation pub in Manchester city centre to launch his World Cup single, Three Shirts On My Line.

Ditto - RIP though

Saw him in Leeds 20 years ago, amazingly funny. Was going to see him again this year when I found out he was touring again. Shame.

I hope Little Frank is ok though.

RIP Frank.
