Presley had lung cancer though which gets you far quicker than emphysema!

Yeah, I know - I fell for an "in the know" source claiming he was in remission. On James, while I believe he's more of a fighter than he lets on (given he'd probably be dead by now otherwise), his health issues are still of the type for which a sudden complication (heart attack, stroke) could finalize them.

I think he'll see 2016. I also thought Reg Presley would see 2014.

That's probably more of a reason for keeping him then.

His cancer is in remission though and he doesn`t seem too reliant on oxygen!He is ill but there are people in worse shape than him !

Sorry, no he should stay on till he dies. It won't be long.

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.
