Did You Know?
It's been a bad year for the gods taking away funny people. Mel Smith
, Roger Lloyd Pack
, Sam Kelly
, our very own Rik [Rik Mayall
]. It's been so bad, in fact, that now, when I see a photo of a funny person come up on telly or in the news, my first reaction is to think, "Oh no, not him/her too." What's going on?
Planer was present, in character as Neil from The Young Ones
(1982), at the recording of Band Aid's legendary single "Do They Know It's Christmas?" in November 1984. He is captured in a making-of documentary performing an impromptu acoustic performance of "Rocking All Over The World" with Rick Parfitt
from Status Quo
, as well as addressing Phil Collins
to his face as "Joan".
