That story about the hamster was just a publicity stunt .
Cooked up by publicist Max Clifford and swallowed hook line and sinker by the execrable Sun, it did Starr's career no harm at all.

His 'Indian' act and his rendition of Vincent still have me in tears. Both on Youtube

His routine as the German officer with the white football shorts complete with Swazteca used to crease me up! Lunatic but hilarious none the less, RIP Freddie.

Agree...but I am sure that there had been a post and someone said they stayed near to his Spanish home???? Maybe on our 'neighbours' site.
Never mind...

His demonstration of a boxing match was one of my favourites, Freddie wearing oversize shorts, huge gloves and boots with the laces undone. There was only him in the ring, taking imaginary blows to his body and head. Hilarious.

He also had a decent singing voice.

Thanks for all the anarchic fun.
R.I.P.

He was hilarious but got hammered by the Me Too movement or something similar - exonerated in the end I believe.

Just read that he had "Return to Sender" written on the side of his coffin.

RIP.

Freddie at his best and the Jordanaires (Elvis backing group of long standing) were visibly impressed. This was played at his funeral.

Worth a watch if you have a spare half hour.
