Forever Young: Rest In Peace Rik Mayall

By NME Blog

Posted on 10 Jun 14



"His style leans towards the surreal or plain lunatic - demanding laughter with menaces. On stage he is tetchy, belligerent, vaguely threatening, with a brittle edge that can startling effect on audience; defused by the fact his creations are, underneath it all, weaklings. One more thing: he isn't funny. He's hysterical." - Paul Rambali, NME, November 7 1981
