Thread Name: Diz Disley - health - died 22 March 2010
Subject: RE: Diz Disley - health
I remember Diz from his early 70s folk-comedian days. I worked at a remote farm in Buckinghamshire where a folk club was held fortnightly in one of the barns and was fortunate to have made some recordings of Diz in about 1971. I have set up a website as a tribute to the farmer who ran the club - see www.turvillefolkclub.co.uk. The club was pure atmosphere even though Diz decsribed it as a 'Monument to Rentokil'! He used to drive there in his hearse even in those days. Quite the funniest act ever, and a guitarist with a talent the was second to none.
Diz did have a heart attack a few years ago and had to give up playing guitar. Wishing you well for a full recovery, Diz!
