I'd just come on to say something about Notts making it to Wembley and this news has brought me back down to earth with a major bump.  :'(

Saw him as part of a 60's evening, must be 10 years ago, most enjoyable.  He wore a large stetson hat and had long hair, during the set he removed the hat to show that he was bald on top and that the hair was just a border around the "pate".
