The Guardian’s obituarist has been dead for 12 yearsmain
The Guardian newspaper today published an obituary of Mirella Freni by Alan Blyth, my former neighbour up the road.
Alan died in 2007, aged 78.
He mass-produced singer obits for the Telegraph, Times, Independent and Guardian in his last active period, but this tribute must be at least two decades old, and the style has worn a bit thin.
Oh, and they used the same free picture that you saw three days ago on Slipped Disc.
