**** that **** on TV mate, but the film is very good indeed and Ray had the screenplay/script etc read out to him and approved of it.

I think he may have also listened to the finished product shortly before he passed.

But you're right, all these "tribute" things are just a publicity stunt for Elton John, Eric Clapton, Sting, etc, etc to act as if they're hardcore fans of the artist when we all know they're **** not.
