When Ronnie Corbett and Bruce Forsyth die, this will be the end of the golden era entertainers for me.
But isn't that era already over? I mean, there used to be an abundance of similar talent. I don't think 2 remaining veterans (I'd add Des O'Connor, if it weren't for the fact he's rarely seen these days) are enough to sustain it - let's face it, if we're living in any era now, it's the era of talentless trashy reality tv ****wits.

Tom Jones, he seems to have so many great stories about legends of the past
I believe he may have mentioned something at some point about meeting Elvis.

Now that Rolf Harris has been linked with Yewtree I would imagine the grief will be different - I'm not saying that he's involved in anything at all, I know he was only questioned but I think the media will be more cautious after the praise they heaped on Savile.

For me? Clive James - I will be sad, but 'end of an era'?

First legend has already gone - Humphrey Lyttelton, R2 Jazz and R4 comedy has never been quite the same. And Samantha is still pining.

Plus - in no particular order:

James Bolam
Joanna Lumley
Mike Oldfield

So it IS true!!!

I was being sarcastic really as I think any chance he gets he talks about being friends with Elvis, having said that, I think he gets asked about it a lot too.

Unfortunately Clive James is a distinct possibility...very soon... He is someone that will be greatly missed...
As will Richard Briars...
