Frank Sidebottom: Statue Unveiled In Timperley Village At Precisely 11.37am
FRANK Sidebottom has been immortalised in bronze. The 5ft 8in tribute to the papier-mache alter ego of Chris Sievey has been installed in Timperley, Greater Manchester. It was unveiled on Stockport Road at precisely 11.37am.
One more time with feeling for the Fourth Beastie Boy:
You can get more of Frank in the film Frank, starring Michael Fassbender. The film, written by Jon Ronson and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy screenwriter Peter Straughan will also star Domhnall Gleeson as a wannabe musician, Jon, who joins Frank’s band.
I loved Frank. Ronson and Fassbender will make it unmissable.
Sievey died of cancer in 2010 aged 54.
