RIP Freddie Starr. Found dead in Spain yesterday.

He had his problems, but haven't we all

He was a good singer I have an LP of his. Sometimes funny, sometimes not, but certainly talented. RIP .

i had on my hard drive a long sketch of him performing a mix and comedy to an audience of his show business peers. He was hilarious.

It's sad that he had such a lonesome end to his life. I hope he rests in peace now. He was funny.

For me Freddie Starr was the all time variety star, he had a fantastic singing voice but he could be funny and sometimes just silly. The first time I saw his act on TV I was a young child in the early 70's I remembered I laughed so hard, it was Tom Jones , Gene Pitney and Mick Jagger . He was also a great mimic. Sadly his act never really changed much 20 yrs later, he lived for laughs.

He looked a sad fiigure after his court case, like many I wonder why he lived such a lonesome life in the end he had 6 children?

Thanks for laugh Freddie and may you rest in peace.

Whilst I liked Freddie Starr he was, unfortunately, embroiled in Operation Yewtree.

He was arrested three times but never charged.

He could be buried in a Paupers grave in Spain
What a sad
lesson in How the mighty can fall :-( :-(

We all look the same in the grave. Power or wealth means nothing to the ravenous worms.

A sad ending for this fellow - according to rumours. :-(
