As well as marking Kirsty MacColl’s death earlier in the month, there’s one other person who I always mark the passing of, with the same song every year.
By which I mean: you know what’s coming, don’t bother reading on if this offends.
2016 was a year when we lost oh so many of our popular culture heroes: David Bowie, Prince, Victroia Wood.
But I’d be lying if I didn’t say that the one I was most upset about was my childhood idol, Rick Parfitt.
So, with absolutely no apologies at all, here’s Quo’s one and only Christmas song:
That’s probably me over and out until the New Year, so let me take this opportunity to wish everyone who stumbles onto my pages a very Merry Christmas.
Oh, and more soon, obviously.
