We reported last week how upset The Bears were to hear that Frank Sidebottom had died. The papier-mâché headed aspiring pop star from Timperley died from cancer after being a hero of ours for many years. Today we can reveal that he died virtually penniless and was facing a pauper’s funeral. Luckily, thanks to a Facebook page being set up in his honour, he can now have a proper burial and there is some money left over to go to his family.
