Alan George Heywood Melly (August 17, 1926 – July 5, 2007) was a British jazz and blues singer. In addition, he was a cultural commentator.[2] George Melly was an atheist.[3]

On April 17, 2007, the Daily Mail reported that George Melly was battling cancer and dementia.[4]

In addition, the Daily Mail reported:

The first hint of problems came seven years ago, when George was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This is nearly always caused by smoking - George has smoked up to 60 cigarettes a day since his teens.

The condition restricts airflow to the lungs, and the lack of oxygen in the bloodstream means there is not enough blood getting to the organs - most importantly the heart.

George ignored instructions to give up smoking but was put on a vast regime of medication, including diuretics to combat fluid build-up.[5]
