Fantastic! The 1960s personified in one photo - a wig and a bleach.

Re "the Ghost Tour" : Didn't Dave Godin say that he tried to dissuade Berry Gordy from going ahead because it was too early/time wasn't right?.

couple of my mates from wrexham went to see them in chester, the place only had about 100 in, they let everyone sit at the front,

mind you it was on a wednesday evening, things were a lot different back then, not many people had cars and buses finished early,

last orders were 10.30. anyway they said it was a fantastic night i missed as they keep saying, they weren't such big stars back then more singing and less showbiz.
