    Treble 20 is certainly no age these days - RIP

    I think it was more to do with the smoking than the weight.

    Your heart can only take so much.

    Preying mantis? That should be Crafty Cockney!

    I used to watch dart all the time back in the day, and Eric was always my favourite player. He was the best but he also loved a good wind-up and cheeky digs at his opponents. He REALLY riled John Lowe and Jocky Wilson at times, they would get so angry! He was also the big draw that made darts very popular, darts would not be where it is now without Eric. Sad to see him go at just 60.

    Sad news. He was a brilliant player, and did a huge job in popularising the game..
     so if you fancy a reissue of a guitar they never made in a colour they never used then it probably isn't too overpriced.
