    Rick with a silent 'P'.
    Weird timing . . . i've just been reading his autobiography.

    This was very unexpected news. I was always a big fan ever since The Young Ones.
    It was the show that defined a generation.

    Wonder if he tried to kill himself with laxative pills.

    The Young Ones is such an important part of my life and Mayall never disappointed me. I hope he'd appreciate it it when I scream "YOU SELFISH BASTARD, RICK!!"

    Damn. I can practically recite verbatim every line of The Young Ones. I still watch the dvd's all the time. Such a brilliant comedian, the People's Poet will be missed. Also love his work as bassist in the legendary metal band Bad News :lol:

    Remember this little anomaly?
    His small part as the 'Second Chess Player' in American Werewolf In London (1981).

    ^^ yeah, he did a few bit-parts early on but nothing else as famous as American Werewolf . . .

    Here's a 20th Century Coyote clip . . . they look sooooo young!

    massive bummer and a piece of my childhood died yesterday. Young Ones was my introduction to British Television.

    Sad day indeed, but what a legacy he left behind
