Don't think I made it along to this.
Mick Hucknall was few years above me at secondary school in Audenshaw. Lived a few roads behind us on the estate in Denton - just near the cycle path where I had my first kiss, a few yards from the sewage works and across the river from the boneyard which gave us the infamous Kingston Stink. Ah, the sweet smell of romance!
My Mam and Dad remember him when he was the "Pot Lad" collecting the glasses in Broomstairs Working Mens' club on Hyde Rd. Money was too tight to mention in those days. (Sorry!)
