Thread Name: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK) (October 2003)
Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK)
I remember when he played at the old Harlow folk club in the early eighties.

There had been a heavy snowfall, and he asked if there was anywhere to stay. I was still living with at home with parents and siblings, and rang my mum to ask if someone could stay in spare room. She said OK.

When we got back, he was very drunk, and my sister said she was sure she recognised him. Apparently, she was a Coronation Street fan, and it turned out he'd appeared on the previous days episode.

He was a great character with plenty of stories.

Rest in Peace
