How would old folks be able to move around in huge cemetaries if they weren't allowed?

Is that Bills sandwich box at the side of the grave?
Or maybe metal detector gear.

"Bill doing the decent thing"...

...Like striking a pose in front of a grave, in order to be photographed properly after (presumeably) having put flowers (or whatever) on it which is supposed to be an act of respect towards the deceased in question?

Oh well... He probably wants to cherish the memory of that particular moment, ...right?

Where did we get this photo, btw? Facebook? Twitter? Insta-thingie?
(I really don't know; Im genuinely asking - but I fear the worst, to be honest.)

And any public record of Bill's donations to charity? Like a page-size add in a worldwide newspaper as public notification?

Not dissing the guy per se; I respect (a.o.) the fact that he holds Brian's legacy in high regard (and even more so because he appears to be the 'last man standing' on that front, as far as the band & its circles are concerned);
I just don't consider this very decent (and I hope it's clear I'm NOT talking about visiting Brian's grave & putting some flowers on it, here) - and definitely not elegant (stilish nor tasteful) either. Bit tacky, if you ask me...

But maybe we just have different views on decency.

The picture came from a post on Rocks Off, "courtesy of Cucho Penaloza". I don't know who he and Justo Tejeda are, but the names suggest that Bill is showing visitors around, and the picture is theirs - there are plenty of pictures online of people recording their visit to Brian's grave, and Bill happens to be in this one.

Different traditions find different things (un)acceptable in a graveyard: most of the Cheltenham cemetery (it's a big one) is very peaceful and accessible on foot only, but Brian's grave is right by the chapel and its visitors' car park. Some people find touristy pictures of people visiting a grave tacky. As for the "sandwich box' - people leave all kinds of offerings for Brian - wine, cigarettes, flowers, letters, records... often in a box or plastic cover to protect them from the rain. Heaven knows what happens to them all.

As a different kind of memorial, a great series of black and white informal pics of Brian are being posted on Rocks Off just now - the source may be the recent Backstage auctions:

They don't, they're dead.

Too bad it's supposedly the first time since 1969, though..

It's a nice pic of Bill, thanks for posting.

As to driving in cemetaries, some of them are so big, it's just more practical to allow cars. Usually though, it's limited access to family members only. I have a parking pass for Arlington National Cemetary because my parents are buried there. Bill probably got a pass to drive in from someone close to Brian.

Take a picture of yourself standing next to Jones' grave an publish it. How self serving. Can't stand the guy.

Bit of a non sequitur there! Just because Arlington is huge and you need a car to get round does not imply that the Cheltenham cemetery (which I have been to) is the same.

It's not that big, and I'm pretty sure that Bill could easily walk from the car park to Brian's grave.

He's pretty fit and healthy you know!
