. . . I'm Seriously Gutted !!!
Having learned of Mel's death - I've grown up with his stuff - from 'Not The 9 O'clock News' to Smith & Jones - & the Christmas Chart Single with Kim Wilde - He's been entertaining us for Decades - it's true what they say - 'The Best Ones Always Die FIRST !' - Mel & Griff were Comedy Royalty & they were awesome together - especially when recoded LIVE - I have a couple of original CD's & VHS's Including "Scratch & Sniff" - (WELL WORTH DOWNLOADING IF U CAN ! ) -
I saw this page a couple of hours ago & SOME SAD PRAT had Marked DOWN the first 16 comments of regret to Mel's passing - HOW EMPTY does your life have to be that you go reading comments about someone you obviously DON'T LIKE ?? !! ?? - The only Computers these people should be given access to are CALCULATORS AND NOTHING MORE !!!
What is it coming to that we can't even acknowledge the passing of a GREAT MAN without some pathetic child trying to spoil it ?
RIP Mel Smith - You WILL NOT be forgotten - Long Live a Comedy Great !!!
Yes Mel was a pioneer in politically correct alternative comedy. I used to find it hilarious when he poked fun at thick white racists. Who can forget the classic: Albert Earnest Oswald Mosley?
He will be remembered for his rock and roll life style, the endless chicken vindaloos and chocolate cake. He left us too early but will be in safe hands, with his hero Freddie Mercury beyond the Pearly Gates.
