Rodney Bewes has died aged 79.

I used to love watching the 'Likely Lads' and especially 'Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads'. Great comedy.

RIP.

Bit before my time, but I saw some repeats--bad news. Oh, and David Cassidy of "Partridge Family" fame has died too:

Dead at sixty-seven... Suffering from dementia, etc - A terrible way to go. It's a terror, these days, for those of us marking in time at the front of the line. But, he died from kidney/liver disease, at least... "at least." Sheesh.

He was a teen hearthrob in his hayday and managed to have a career in Las Vegas, at least.

I used to watch the show ("The Partridge Family") when I was a kid. I liked it better than shows like "The Brady Bunch" simply because it was a heck of a lot more complex and interesting. I didn't even know they were a "real band" at the time.

I don't think he always appeared in the best stuff, but I don't think I can remember a single appearance by Keith Chegwin where he wasn't smiling or laughing...guy just never seemed to have an angry bone in his body. Sad news.

When our (new) team leader announced this to the office today, half of us went, "Aww!" and the other half went, "Who's Keith Chegwin?". Yoof!

Although both equally sad for family and friends, I was struck by how differently this made me feel than Max Clifford dying yesterday.

I mentioned Morecombe & Wise the other day and got a similar response - except it more than half.
