Jockie Wilson to the oche in the sky

Jocky Wilson dies two days after turning 62
I used to like darts in the late 70's early 80's particulary Wilson, Bristow and Lowe.

Along with snooker of that period.
I think the smoking and drinking (particularly the drinking) gave the games an edgy anything can happen feel to them.

Hardly surprising given his smoking habits.  He was a character though.
