Saw this earlier, he was only 62 as well. I remember when Dexy's midnight runners were on Top of the Pops singing about Jackie Wilson and the researchesr put up a huge background photo of Jocky Wilson and they sang along to it! Apparently it was an in-joke among the production team, brilliant fun!

 

Lasting memories..."Here's Jocky at the Oche"

Very sorry to read this. Saw an article on him a few years ago about his lifestyle as a recluse. He generally refused interviews. He rarely commented on his former glories, and even then always mentioned that it was entirely his own fault he ended up the way he did. First Alex Higgins, now Jocky. Childhood heroes. R.I.P.

 

Almost the first ever televised 9 darter.
