I have just received the very sad news from Dave Cousins, that Fred Wedlock died today following a heart attack.

Those of us who attended the 40th anniversary really enjoyed Fred's role as compere, and the set of his own material he gave us on Sunday morning, including his classic hit "The Oldest Swinger In Town".

A huge comic talent, and an all round thoroughly nice guy, I know those fans who were at the show and those who have seen Fred in the past during his long and successful career, would want to pass on their condolences to Fred's family.
