Yes, I wanna tell you a story, about a great entertainer who has sadly passed away.
Max Bygraves has sadly passed at the age of 89.
One of Britain’s best all round variety entertainer. He wrote a string of comic songs and released a number of albums with his Singalongamax series probably being the most well-known. Max appeared in a number of films, notably Charley Moon in 1956, as well as several TV shows. He also performed on stage with contemporaries Spike Milligan, Benny Hill, Harry Secombe and Frankie Howerd and in later years he often appeared at the London Palladium.
For me, probably the fondest memory will be Max singing “Out of Town”. I hope that, wherever Max is, he is enjoying the sentiment of that song.
Say what you will,
The countryside is still
The only place where I could settle down
Troubles there are so much rarer
Out of town
Max Bygraves is most definitely “Out Of Town”
