He looked awful when I saw his picture in the paper the other day, I guess all those years of smoking and drinking caught up with him, and must have been the trigger for the cancer in this case, I wasnt his greatest fan but he did a lot for the popularity of snooker.

I got into snooker in the 1980's when I met Steve Davis at Weston Favell Centre. In those days doubles snooker was on at Derngate (I was a kid and didn't go). I started playing snooker at Overstone Road Snooker Club around that time. Alex wasn't my favourite player but was part of the golden age of snooker (imo)

I can't help feeling you are being a little harsh there. Yes she was definatley facked up in her life, but one cannot ignore the fact that so many of her antics were nothing more than a cry for help from an obviously very sad person. Maybe her record label should have been more intereted in her well being than when she would earn them a few more quid.

Amy Winehouse had an addiction to drugs anybody with an addiction is asking for trouble. I lost a good friend through drug addiction, he knew all his friends wanted him to sort his addiction put but alas he lost his fight against his addiction. I miss him terribly but have found myself wanting to help people addicted to drugs rather than to chastise them...
one final thought, would she have written the same material if she was clean of drink/drugs?

wrong.

one day she was anonymous and the next, literally the very next day, she couldnt leave her house to buy a pint of milk without 100s of paps taking her picture, pointing their cameras through her living room window. herorin puts you in a bubble where everything outside of it doesn't matter. in her situation im not surprised she wanted a way ot of that. heroin, the bubble, was her way out and her way to get away from the f/cking mentalness that got thrust upon her. I saw her a couple of times, the 2nd was at glastonbury 0 or whenever Jay z was there. luckily she played my favourite song of hers (My Tears Dry On Their Own) 2nd or 3rd when she was still with it, so that sounded good. After that she went downhill rapidly. Shame, big voice, great talent, couldnt cope with it. I actually have used the example of winehouse to my mum about why people do drugs, to get away from the **** in their lives for a few hours. And it actually made her understand as well which surprised me as she'd always been roughy anti before that

Wilf Dixon, coach/ trainer at Everton when they won the title in 1970, also coach at Tottenham and Arsenal, and other smaller clubs like Aldershot and Southend, he lived in the same village as me, would talk for hours about football. I took him to watch a Cobblers training session in the the Gray/Sammo era, he talked to them for ages about the game.

Rik Mayall was a superb comic actor, Am genuinely gutted that he`s died.

There is an excellent quote from Ade Edmondson.

 'There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.'
