15 years ago today.
For the uninitiated, here's a good place to start catching up:
Wendy Richards is dead as well
The other mechanic I used to work with in the bike shop was a big Bill Hicks fan, we often used to have a CD of him on while we were working away. Unfortunately the sound would sometimes drift upstairs onto the shop floor and one day during one of Bills' more expletive-laden monologues a customer heard it (and our hysterical laughter) and put a complaint in.
Think my favourite is the flying saucer one, loads of apopleptic rage on there The book containing some of his letters is also very good.
What killed him? the big C?
Pancreatic cancer, I think.
I saw him when he played Oxford. Fan bloody tastic. His stuff on the Iraq War is priceless - who'd have thought it would ever be directly accurate and current again?
Thanks for the laughs Bill.
Tried both starting places, didnt more than half way through either - dull.
