With Deso Connor as compere?

He did compere a lot of their UK tour, apparently - reckons he and Charles got on like a house on fire, (genuinely, I believe).

Mind you, both seemed fairly affable blokes.

Must have wiped that from my mind. Perhaps Marty Wild was on the bill too though.

If Nico hadn't fatally fallen off her bicycle she'd be 75 now, and probably a husky chanteuse in the Dietrich style.

But The Man reckoned without some greasers from Liverpool keeping the flame.

I'd ensure Syd Barrett received some proper help in mid 67. Happy Birthday, Syd.
