Sorry to hear that.

When my wife and I first started going out in 1979/1980 we used to go to a pub close to Richmond station (I forget the name of it but it was the smaller of two pubs that had regular music) and fall in love on friday evenings listening to music in very cosy surroundings - it was a small pub and the musicians were about four feet away from the bar. There was a trio who played regularly but occasionally other musicians would come one of whom was Cliff.

We had many a pleasant evening listening to him singing and playing. Often he would appear with a bass player and occasionally turn up with friends - I believe he arrived with Gordon Giltrap one evening though that may be my memory playing tricks.

I remember him as a cheerful guy and a good singer and player who always had time for everyone for a chat.

Lot of warm feelings about those times - sorry that the circumstances that prompt such fond memories for me must be giving others grief.
