    Some sad news – it’s been reported that jazz legend George Melly has died at the age of 80.

    He’d been plagued by a variety of illnesses and ailments for a while now, but carried on performing up until a few weeks ago.

    "I've always said I wanted to die either coming off stage with the applause in my ears or of a terminal stroke on a river bank with two trout by my side."

    RIP :(

    That's a relief. I thought for a moment you were talking about Roger Mellie
