Yes folks, nothing else to say. The old boy passed away.

He lived very local to me. Very sad to see him go.

Just caught this on the news, too. Very sad -- I always enjoyed watching him when growing up, and he was a fine entertainer, larger than life and he done so much for charity over the years.

He would have been 84 years old in only 2 more days. Sir Jimmy was indeed a character and much loved by the UK public..

Savile was a one off who spoke very highly of Elvis on many occasions.
RIP Sir Jim

I have just finished learning of this on the news, very sad that such a great character has gone. I have great memories of him and watched live his very first Top of the Pops on television in January 1964. So sad that he didn't quite make his 85th. birthday.
R.I.P. Jimmy.

Sad news, he seemed such a nice man.

The 'Jimmy Saville Old Record Club' was a major part of my pop history education as a youngster.

Hey Tony, i also have that paper.

Looks like they have taken away all the other words from the jacket and just left 'Elvis' on it.

Never noticed that before.
