Mark Radcliffe remembers Chris Sievey/Frank Sidebottom

It's been a painful couple of weeks for me since the death of Chris Sievey. Chris/Frank has been an idol of mine for almost 25 years and I got to know Chris as a close friend over the last 5 years. He was a real  inspiration to me and I feel honoured to have known him.
It was Chris's funeral yesterday. It was a relatively small, private service for family and close friends only. This Thursday 8th July is FRANKS FANTASTIC FAREWELL...a free public send off to be held at the Castlefield Arena, Manchester, 7pm-10pm
It's gonna be a celebration of Franks life in showbusiness, spanning 25 years. Lots of videos on the giant screens...his most loved work and some rare, unseen footage too. Guest speakers, music and a performance from the OH-BLIMEY BIGGEST EVER BAND.....every one we can get in touch with that did some time backing Frank!! It will be funny and sad in equal measures.
