Sad news. Frank Robinson – better known to the citizens of Nottingham as Xylophone Man – passed away on Sunday, at the Queen’s Medical Centre.
Most importantly of all: Nixon of Popdizzy (who has written his own tribute) has started an online petition, calling on Nottingham City Council to erect a statue in Frank’s honour, and calling on Nottingham Express Transit to name a tram after him.
You can sign and view the petition here. If you’re “local”, then please tell everyone. Thank you.
(Update: As of Friday afternoon, the petition has collected 1215 signatures.)
