He was in fine form , regaling Cathy and his family with risqué stories from his hospital bed right up until yesterday evening. His devilish sense of humour intact until the end.
Jimmy played on opening night 17th of January 1977 and has played for 6 nights a week ever since, tinkling the ivories for the likes of Stephen Sondheim, Rock Hudson, Damien Lewis, Dame Judi Dench, Alison Steadman, Jane Horrocks, Tim Rice and Joanna Lumley to name a tiny few. Throughout his colourful career every Actor who has ever performed in London’s West End has been serenaded by Jimmy at one time or another and he adored them all.
Jimmy was a true legend of the Musical, Theatrical and Restaurant world and will be sadly missed.
We love you Jimmy
