    The bloke was a genius. This is another of his, a musical palindrome.

    When this was a hit (many Moons ago) I had just started by first job at Ternhill Helicopter Training School (for the Met Office.) I was living in a sort of Nissan Hut with several other RAF types (known as 'crabs' or 'crab fats' in the trade.) I wasn't that far away from home, about 20 miles as the fly crows, but it felt like the middle of nowheresville. :eek:

    Jet Harris left the Shadows effectively because Cliff Richards was having an affair with his wife and he drank as a result of the depression he felt. Tony Meehan went with him in sympathy.

    Don't care what anyone thinks. I love a bit of Des. He was my Mums favourite singer, along with Jim Reeves.

    I once had a drink with Ozzy Osborne in the lounge of the Prince of Wales (my local at the time.) An old mate of mine used to do a bit of roadying for him. He lived near Stafford for a while back then, somewhere out Derrington way I think.
