Subject: RE: Anyone know of Tom Yates
He turned up, penniless, at a benefit - I think during the first miners' strike - at an Islington pub and wanted to perform but the miserable old Stalinist taking the door money wouldn't let him in without paying. There was no "don't you know who I am?" and he even declined modestly my offer to intervene on his behalf. Jolly nice chap.
