This man should be a Manchester legend based on "toothache" alone! I never had the pleasure of seeing John but from stories I have been told, John would go in a club straight from work in his postman clothes, berate whoever was playing and on some nights would get up on stage and wail like a banshee whilst delivering his magnum opus "toothache" which was basically John howling like a demented lunatic screaming "ooooooohhhh....i got toooothache!
On that basis alone we should build a statue to John and revere him for the god he truly was!
