I thought I’d post this today for two people who died in the past few days:
The first is composer David Bedford who arranged the song and in particular the brass section played by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band. He also worked with artists such as Mike Oldfield, Billy Bragg, Madness and even Frankie goes to Holywood!
The other person who sadly passed away was England Cricketer Dilly who died aged just 52. He played for England, Kent, and Worcestershire during his long career and I think I may have seen him play at the latter club but I can’t be sure!
