Yeah, he died in The Pub in Malta. I went there shortly after and they were giving these out - like mass cards but with bad pub wit on the back ("When you lie, let it be by a pretty lady...when you steal, steal away from bad company", yadda yadda)I was reading about Oliver Reed the other night. Legendary drinker.
After beating five much younger Royal Navy sailors at arm-wrestling, Reed suddenly collapsed, dying while en route to hospital in an ambulance. He was 61 years old.
