"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Simon Dee RIP



Times' obituary

  1. That brings back some memories, GV.

  2. It's strange that his career was ended by an LWT interview with another sudden rise to fame, followed by the bum's rush, ego-maniac... George Lazenby.

    Conspiracy theorists might see something in the fact that Lazenby revealed the names of the US politicians he thought were responsible for JFK's assassination during Dee's interview... and David Frost being part owner of LWT and friend of the US political elite.

    It's a shame really... I liked Lazenby and Dee RIP.

  3. Dee's career was all over the place - I've just added the obit from the Times - but that Fortunes' song will always mean Radio Caroline.
