Music Guru Molly Meldrum has revealed that he sometimes imagines being at his own funeral.
In an interview with New Idea, Molly has said ‘’‘I want them to put me in that Egyptian sarcophagus I’ve got over there.’’
‘When they carry me through the church, I’ll open the lid, sit up in my coffin and go: “Just one more thing… Can I have another drink, please?”’
At 73, Molly has realised he has be more careful, especially following a recent medical emergency on billionaire Lindsay Fox’s 80th birthday cruise.
Molly was forced to abandon his party and fly home from Greece for urgent treatment to his spine at Melbourne’s Epworth Freemasons Hospital.
Earlier in the year, Molly was injured when he tried to dodge a tuk-tuk outside a hotel in Bangkok.
Between both those misadventures, Molly secretly ‘broke his back’ on another holiday to Thailand with adopted son Morgan, daughter-in-law Crystal and grandson Jason.
‘He tripped over one of Jason’s toys beside the swimming pool,’ says good friend Yael. ‘Of course he never wants to make a fuss, or be “Molly-coddled” as we call it.
Molly was last seen in public at Delta Goodrem’s Melbourne concert, where he told the singer to ‘get on with it’ when she was talking to him.
