GUEST,The Roadie Obit: what happened to Shag Connor? (85* d) RE: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor? 22 Mar 07

Me Father had a Rabbit and the Bog eyed jog were both recorded for Children In Need. In fact these songs were the first ever to be recorded for Children in need. As we all know there is a single each year now.
The song Mike is refering to is called "Help The Cones are taking over" done to the tune of John Brown body. Sadly it never quite made the charts as Wogan dropped his banter on cones shortly after it was released! Shag, Terry and the late Ray Moore remained good friends and at Shags funeral Ray made a speach, sadly only a few months before he died himself. Also Brendan Shine sang at Shags funeral.
By the way, Brendan Shine is currently on tour in the UK and I am pleased to report is still singing Micks songs!If any one has any video recording of Mick I would love to hear from you. I have a few but the quality is not good, happy to copy and send to anyone who is interested. Most of Micks recordings can be found on e-bay. I am in touch with the old band members, in particular Barry (Plonker!) who was the keyboard player for many years and is still preforming today. Barry and myself are hoping to organise a re union this year to mark the 20th anniversary of Micks death. Great to see he is not totally forgotten out there! Happy to answer any e-mail sent me your questions to Keep on crunching!
