He was a gent


In the 1950s when i was about 16/17 i was a member of a Skiffle group called the All Star Skiffle Group based in Manchester, one night we had our only booking at a sporting club in a ex cinema called the Cintra i can’t remember where it was but when we were shown to the dressing room we other people who were on the bill a comedian called Johnny “Goon Tweed and a singer called Matt Monro i think he was billed as the singing bus driver, he was a gent no edge about him and when we finished our spot we knew we were rubbish but he said “Well done Lads” I will remember that night for ever, whenever i hear his voice i say to myself i was on the same bill as him. Happy Day.
