”Dementia is not Parkinson's disease, actually. Billy has the latter but I can find no reference to his having dementia.”

I thought that’s the condition he has too, Steve. We saw Billy at Sheffield City Hall a few years ago, just before his illness was made public, he was hilarious as usual, but we both commented that he seemed to ‘have summat up’, there were moments when he was clearly having difficulty recalling ‘the next bit’ in his routine. We commented that we thought it might be the last time we see him touring, and so it proved to be.

His swearing might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it doesn’t bother us - we hear far worse in our local market place and shopping mall - but his observations of human behaviour, and his ability to find the humour in human frailty, are brilliant AFAWAC. Others’ may have a different view, and that’s OK.
