Ian Dury was a rock and roll vagabond with the wit, humour and intelligence of Noël Coward and Oscar Wilde. His verbal dexterity as an entertainer and a lyric writer gave the world some of its most famous phrases - "sex and drugs androck and roll" and "reasons to be cheerful." He was a true Renaissance man - a talented painter, musician, and actor - who left behind a body of work that continues to amuse, impress, and delight to this day.
