“Permafrost, dont laugh at this but the most merorable thing , the one thing that stuck in my mind was the sweat that came off the man , he was dripping , the thin light blue mohair suit that he wore was ringing wet through from the armpits to the trousers, every night he played , I also saw him at the Napoleaon on Cornwall St Gorton M/c, when I worked there in 1989, The man ...the music ,...absolutely a star”
