Thread Name: Diz Disley - health - died 22 March 2010
Subject: RE: Diz Disley - health
The vehicle he drove at the time was a hearse (great fun to watch the reaction of other drivers as we went past - not at the expected speed a hearse travels at). Anyway, it broke down and Diz got underneath it and fixed whatever the problem was. For those of you who aren't famililar with Diz, at the time he was wearing his favorite atire - a white, shiny, long-sleeved T-shirt with a polo neck. Needless to say, it was covered in oil!
Sylvia, KeithK may remember meeting up for an expenses lunch with Diz in a posh St John's Wood luncherie during the recording of The Druids first album for Decca in West Hampstead. After the meal Diz, knowing that we were Rolls Royce engineers, went to great lengths to get us to inspect the dodgy brakes on his Rolls Royce hearse. The fact that we were aero engineers and worked on jet turbines seem to matter not one bit. A real character.
May he have some more years if he can have them in comfort.
