    I can see the likeness to Tommy Steele Tony!



    Oh dear 3 facts.....


    1) I stood next to Paul Weller and DIDN't ask for his autograph because I'm far too cool.

    2)Keith Emerson of Emerson Lake and Palmer is my cousin.

    3) I once got the highest score for my floor exercise in a gym competition. Apparently it was because I smiled throughout! Also I used to train for the beam on a brick wall. I reasoned that If I fell I would hurt myself.

    Sorry not very interesting!

    Met the great Bobby Charlton on a sponsored walk once, much to our surprise, he was on one of the check points, and, further down the line was Nobby Stiles...can't remember the exact date, but, I know it was in the 60's. Both these guys found time to talk to us and encourage on in the walk...don't whether it was before or after World Cup, but, they famous as Manchester United footballers...memory I've cherished for years, left a big impression.
