Proby's name is on the list of acts undertaking a lengthy UK tour this year, dates up to the start of December, by which point he'll be 76.


Seems a bit young for the deathlist, no?


Not really, just because he's 76 doesn't mean he's too young. Davey Jones and Gene Pitney were both 66 when they died. Both had heart attacks while on tour.


Proby has a history of hell raising and heart trouble. He's not too young for us. The cynic in me assumes he wasn't too much of a worry for the insurance people underwriting this tour because he's so far down the bill that any health problem ahead of them setting off wouldn't lead to mass demands for refunds.

Dunno, if the pleasure comment refers to his rampant shagging in the sixties...he may have a point (heh heh).

Benefit fraudster, maybe.


... and three years later, it reaches Worcester Crown Court. I hope BearGrove/SuttonHunter has got front row tickets.


...and another year later, PJ Proby cleared of benefit fraud.

"I am very happy justice has finally been done. I was not dishonest when I claimed benefits, which I needed in order to live.
"I only performed to give pleasure and not to make money." :rolleyes:

Prosecution under the Trades Description Act to follow, surely?
