Edmundo Ros

The master of the Latin American beat is 95 today. Remember Edmundo Ros and His Rhumba Band?

 

Ok, Perhaps not.

 

He was a favourite of the immediate post-war generation and very close to the British Royal Family so he will get his prominent obits.

 

Here is his pedigree:

I would like to recommend him to the Death List Committee for consideration for next year's list.

 

(Along with Hitchcock actress Norah Baring, 99 and Will Hay director Val Guest, 94).

 

My other two actress nominations from last year (Kay Walsh and Constance Cummings) have popped off this year and I think this trio will give us a similarly good chance of success regardless of their present state of health.

This is an Edmundo Ros thread. I never heard of him but Arnold knows his stuff. I have a problem with this fame and celebrity thing. Somewhere on this site there is a picture of one of those Big Brother slags. I know it was used ironically but I'm not sure that passing celebrity is enough. I'm just so glad I've forgotten her name. The merge police should stand back a bit. I'm still suffering from the snuffing out of my ailing Yorkshiremen (and Mollie Sudgen) thread. Brian Close can't be far off and I thought of another one then forgot him. That's what happens when you're threadbare.

Obviously you don't listen to Desmond Carrington and his ilk on Radio 2. I'll cough to the fact that my main interest in Mr Ros was his potential role in my DDP XX for 2006.

If they weren't in the Beano and Dandy I don't know these people. Still Mollie Sugden wasn't. Still I don't know her either. But I've heard about her pussy.

Nothing on his health that I could find. Any reason besides age that we should be considering him?

As the Death List Committee prepares to debate candidates worthy of inclusion in next year's list, I would like to take the opportunity to remind them of dear old Edmundo. He's 96 next month. I've no health report to offer as evidence of his imminent demise. But I've a feeling in my waters, as my old mother-in-law used to say. Much the same as I did with Val Guest, Constance Cummings and Kay Walsh. And er...Norah Baring...who eventually embarrassed me by revealing that she actually took her final curtain call in 1985! Well at least we opened up a useful debate on on her whereabouts which finally resulted in the IMDB updating her entry!

 

I confess that Richard O'Sullivan has failed me miserably on the hanging front. And Patrick Moore looks fairly comfortable in his trousers.

 

But Edmundo must surely be about to perform his final rhumba pretty soon.

 

Alas, where will that leave us for Saturday evening entertainment?

We should bring Edmundo Ros - band leader and arranger - into consideration if only because he's 29 days short of his 100th birthday.
