    RIP Frank Sidebottom (Chris Sievey)

    mod
    "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."

    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.
