I loved Paul Daniels, he really showed how stage presence is more important than the tricks you do.

I had the good fortune to see him at MagiFest last year.  What a performance!  There is a huge void in the world of magic.

According to the website Independent.co.uk, "Paul did not know he was dying in the final weeks of his life, his wife Debbie McGee has said."  The article goes on to state that, "In an emotional interview with the BBC, McGee said her last weeks with her husband were full of laughter, with Daniels cracking jokes shortly before passing away."

This new is somewhat heartening, and helps to paliate an other wise tragic loss.

I have done a little business with him in the past. Not that long ago I did an interview with Paul Pacific who asked me lots of questions about Paul Daniels. Luckily I thought highly of him and said so at the time. Paul came across the video and praised it to the skies on Twitter and Facebook saying "It was pure gold for magicians" but admonished people to ignore what I said about him personally.

He really was a top cabaret performer and nobody could equal him in that environment.

Yes, it is truly tragic, he will surely be missed.

I enjoyed watching his performances and viewing his DVDs videos.

So beautiful that those were the last words he spoke to his father.

What a great story. How wonderful it must have felt to be recognized and appreciated by such a giant in magic.

Thanks for sharing this, Mark.

I was fortunate enough to live and work in Edinburgh Scotland for 2 years back in 2003. I remember at the time my friend had said that Paul Daniels was doing a gig in Glasgow and asked if I wanted to go. At the time I was doing a lot of freelance work so didn't have a lot of spare time. I turned down the offer to go see him live and it's something I've regretted Since. Lesson learned.

Thanks for sharing this. May I share my experience with him and the lovely Debbie McGee?

I asked if I could interview them and they kindly consented. I added in background commentary of the interview to hopefully help readers get a better sense of the atmosphere.

The not so nice photos were taken by me on a simple old camera and they were OK with them. And I got Paul and Debbie to approve the way I wrote it up before I had it posted online.
