Subject: RE: Diz Disley - health
Diz's hearse was always a talking point. I played with him at the Willows Folk Club in Arundel - many years ago when Bob Hedges was running it and the venue was in the Arudendel Cricket Club pavilion. He'd come down from London on a cupful (so it seemed) of petrol and realised he had to fill up before he left the club at 11. So, before the gig started, I lent him the club's fee to pay for some petrol and guided him to the nearest petrol station in my car - just in case he ran out before he got there - with a rubber tube ready to hand... Bless him!
