If you have to pay attention, it's not that noticeable....?

Fuck it, in some ways he sounds better than some people I know. Still lots of bass in his voice. Really sick of the non-updates on this guy. Especially this particular one just cos you made me look at Andrew Marr for no reason.

http://www.itv.com/n...love-of-poetry/ -In this interview on Monday he admits he doesn`t know how long he has got but he certainly doesn`t look as bad as I thought he would.Japenese Maple used poetic license and he hasn`t deteriated recently.It appears to only be the emphysema which is the issue but one can go on for some time with emphysema like Liz Dawn and Kenneth Cope have.Maybe they might be better bets next year? I have a feeling Clive is just being over dramatic about being near the end .Yeah he is ill for sure but there are many other picks we could use that are in worse shape than him and have crapper prognosis's.

Yeah he has but the poem seems pretty specific in timescale maybe his kidneys are playing up again or the cancer has come back.

He could be but the tree from his daughter is in his house in England and the leaves change colour in a few weeks time.He seems to have a degree of certainty this time that he is a goner as he has put a time frame on his lifespan as opposed to just saying he is near the end.

Yeah, but he has a track record as a joker too.

Just sayin', like.

I wonder what has changed recently in his health to make him go from that fairly cheery interview to this poem which he basically gives himself a few weeks at a push?

Not necessarily. He may be hinting at the autumn that starts around March 2015 on the southern hemisphere. Or the autumn that starts around September 2020 on the northern one, for that matter.

I saw Frank Turner at a gig on Saturday night, and he's written some song about Clive James, or dedicated to him or something. I cant really remember how it went, but he just mentioned about his general state of being unwell. I dont think thats any advancement on what we already know about him, but its still related nonetheless
