The Hertfordshire Folk Club scene was big in its day......I never saw him but Paul Simon played Hitchin as a solo artist in the 60's.

Don't know why but this made me chuckle !

On the subject; I worked with this woman once who told a story of being about 3 years old and taken to a park in London by her mum. Would've been the late 60's. She was on the swing as her mum watched from a nearby bench. She ended up losing her balance and fell off and was crying on the floor; but before her mum could get to her, a nearby man out walking his English Sheepdog saw what happened and picked her up, dusted her down and comforted her.

When she was older her mum reminded her of the incident and said to her shock that the kind passer by was in fact Paul McCartney.

Wilf understandably misunderstood and wrote 'To Neil'
When I explained I wanted 2-0 we had a good laugh. First time I'd heard him laugh out loud.
Excellent...I think that’s better than writing 2-0, as it must make you chuckle whenever you remember that.

It's a story that sounds like what Casablanca would be if made today.

I was travelling back home to Grantham on the train from a meeting in Manchester around 15 years ago. Late afternoon, just before the rush hour therefore the train was fairly sparsely populated.

Presently the door between my carriage and the adjoining one open and in pops Ian Brown, formerly (at the time) of the Stone Roses. He was in full 'king monkey' rock star mode, amusingly laity with what appeared to be a lackey in tow. Swaggers into the carriage swigging from a massive bottle of Malibu, pronouncing to no-one in particular 'I'm the main man I am, I'm the fookin' main man'. The few other hardy souls in my carriage ignored him but being a Stone Roses fan I gave him a respectful nod of the head and a smile. He responded positively to this and treated me to a bit of one on one lairiness - 'nice suit for a square, man' and other such nonsense, with his lackey rolling his eyes patiently in the background.

Turned out said lackey way actually his tour manager and they were en route to a gig in Nottingham. After a couple of minutes idle (in Ian's case very well oiled) chatter, they proceeded down to the next carriage for a repeat performance.

I was amused to read an interview with Ian Brown in Q magazine a couple of months later, in which he claimed to have been teetotal for years.

Later in the pub next door he bought everyone a drink and was pretty amiable .. Which is more than can be said for Ian botham who I also saw there once, right up his own arse and a real misery guts.

Yes Jack Charlton...I used to be involved in one of these business network things, load of old bollocks really but we used to arrange the occasional dinner with a guest speaker. Members of the organising committee would share the workload of ensuring whichever guest speaker had been booked was well looked after, had their transportation to the venue sorted etc.

In Jack Charlton's case, he refused all offers of assistance with his journey, booked his own train tickets to Peterborough and his own taxi to the venue. When he rolled up he had a little carrier bag full of various nik-naks, and told us he'd arrived early and so passed a pleasant couple of hours in Peterborough shopping centre (which is pretty woeful).

Jack was a big drinker, downed them all evening then stood up after the meal to deliver a highly entertaining and amusing 30 minute speech off the cuff without notes. Afterwards he continued regaling everyone at the bar with his stories and bought more than his fair share of rounds. He was the last man standing and we had to persuade him to leave...a really successful evening.

Sir Garry Sobers by contrast was a right miserable ****. Insisted on being picked up from the train station and chauffeured to the nearest bookies, whereupon he proceeded to spend a dull hour placing meagre bets and not engaging in any conversation. At the meal he gave a desultory speech for 15 minutes without any real wit or humour, then as soon as he'd finished he demanded transportation back to the station so he could get the hell out of there asap. Maybe we just caught him on a really bad day.
