So:

  • Kiddly fiddler?
  • Corpse toucher?
  • Other? (please specify)
  • All of the above?

He was devoted to his mum.

Just like the Krays.

And Mark Thatcher.

D'you remember back in the 60's when he made that record "Ahab the Arab"? That suddenly came back to me

was he really a corpse toucher?

He claimed to have been the first DJ to use twin turntables, the entire hiphop community is in his debt.

Electro - 29 Oct 2011 15:36:12 (#37 of 17198)

He was a staunch supporter of Margaret Thatcher and spent 11 successive New Years with the former prime minister at Chequers!

I remember Ahab the Ayrab, LadyDi. It was a very stupid song, with racial stereotyping which was offensive even in those far-off times.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:39:41 (#39 of 17198)

Wasn't he called in to talk to Charles and Di and try and stop them from divorcing?

I'd have jumped out of the window

It takes some imagination to think of SirJim as the answer to a failing marriage. Or perhaps we've misjudged him.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:47:51 (#41 of 17198)

Perhaps the Queen misjudged him?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 15:48:31 (#42 of 17198)

He fought over one hundred professional wrestling bouts losing nearly every one of them

MorningCloud - 29 Oct 2011 15:49:21 (#43 of 17198)

Let it all out, LadyDi. Tell us what really went on.. ;)

Oh I wish I knew. I hope no cigars were involved

Tenesmus - 29 Oct 2011 15:57:32 (#46 of 17198)

I want a sinister charabanc.

As a mum, I find it sad that this is so often the sign of someone odd. Somehow it shouldn't be.

1OffManMental - 29 Oct 2011 16:00:08 (#48 of 17198)

What is this sinister charabanc business?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 16:01:08 (#49 of 17198)

It's bit odd when you're 80 and she's dead

mabrouka - 29 Oct 2011 16:02:19 (#50 of 17198)

GPWM

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 16:05:38 (#51 of 17198)

GPWM?

He kept all his mum's clothes in the wardrobe after she died and left her bedroom exactly as it was. That's a bit odd.
