I went to the wife's Xmas do the best part of 20 years ago at Claridge's. They had a disco following the dinner and were playing loads of old s!$% from the 60's, I got the DJ to put on Firestarter, it completely cleared the dancefloor except for me and the wife. :lol::smirk: Miserable old f!$%ers....

Remember watching that vid on the TV in the nineties and thought WOW.

Guess he couldn't face the big five O amongst other reasons :sad:

Quick true story about him.
My mate Ray Wills used to live in London (He's now a tramp in San Diego but that's another story :grin:)
He had a CBR600 and had broken down on the A41 just outside the smoke. He'd pushed his bike to a safe place and was sat on it wondering what to do when a car pulled alongside (He didn't own a mobile at that time, they were still uncommon).

It was Mr Flint, who asked him what the issue was. When he found out, he made a call to a "mate" who turned up in a transit van and loaded Ray and the bike onto it. This fella then took them to a motorbike workshop in London and proceeded to fix his bike for him. Once fixed, which apparently took several hours, he sent him on his way without charge stating that Keith was picking up the bill.


A nice gesture IMHO and a story Ray has often repeated.:thumbup:

It was a Supersport (600) team, but he didn't sponsor it, he owned it. They had considerable success at the TT as well as on the short circuits.:thumbup:

Alas, does seem to be true :sad:

Also goes to show that good people who seem to have outside confidence with everything going for them can be struggling on the inside.

heard some interviews on the radio of people who did gigs with them and they said he was an amazing bloke who would go to their changing rooms and ask them if everything was ok they said he was a very calm and respectful gent.
