Frank Sidebottom R.I.P.

Chris Sievey was a unique comic genius who created one of the most memorable comedy characters of all time: Timperley's very own Frank Sidebottom, the musical genius with the papier mache head, and let's not forget his hand-puppet 'Little Frank' ....

I was very sad to hear that Chris died yesterday, aged 54, but he has left us with a lot of happy musical memories which always raise a smile.

His final public appearance, singing his very own World Cup song "Three Shirts On My Line":

There's lots more fabulous Frank clips on YouTube, so check them out.
