Alex Turner - Alex Turner Remembers Savile At London Concert

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner took time out of the band's show in London on Saturday (29Oct11) to remember beloved British TV legend Jimmy Savile, who passed away earlier that day.
The former Top of the Pops presenter passed away at his home in Leeds, England, two days before he would have turned 85. His cause of death is not yet known.
Turner - who hails from the same English region of Yorkshire as the late star - took to the stage at London's O2 Arena hours after the news broke in the U.K., and he paid tribute to Savile in front of thousands of fans.
He referred to the title of Savile's hit U.K. TV show Jim’ll Fix It to introduce his pal Miles Kane to perform songs from their The Last Shadow Puppets sideproject.
He told the crowd, "Jimmy Savile, rest in peace. I don't know if this was his work, but I think tonight he fixed one more thing for us - put your hands together for Miles Kane."

Wrong! Sir Jimmy Savile was indeed born in Leeds, which is in West Yorkshire but Alex Turner was born in Sheffield, which is in SOUTH Yorkshire. Dear dear, please do some proper research before putting your stories up.
