Celebrity meeting on the M4

Victor SpinettiJust met Victor Spinetti at the Membury services on the M4 heading towards London. I said to him, I know the face, you’re a famous actor but I am sorry to say, your name escapes me. “Victor Spinetti” was the reply in a lovely deep welsh accented voice.

We had a nice chat about how he is “winding down” as he is 81. We discussed the Internet and how he uses email etc. Unfortunately someone had taken his name when he looked into having a website created. He said so what, I am too old anyway.

Very nice gentleman, he said to look on YouTube for him “singing” the Beatles song obladi oblada. He famously is great friends with the remaining Beatles having worked with them all through their career. I did and here it is for your delectation and delight.
