Once told me to f**k off (followed by the name Brian) in a pub in Dublin. My bizarre claim to fame. He was enjoying a quiet meal which became less quiet after I told all and sundry of his presence.
My bizarre claim to fame involves Davy Jones too! In 1984, he lived on my newspaper round in a rather modest terraced house opposite his horse stables in Bedhampton, near Havant. One day, while delivering his copy of the Daily Express, his black labrador came bounding toward me in a rather over-familiar manner, at which point I ran through Davy Jones' front garden flowerbeds into the safety of the neighbour's porch while the hound slobbered away outside the window. Davy Jones himself came to the rescue, collected his newspaper with a grin, and brushed away my attempted apologies for semi-destroying his garden without a 'f**k off' in sight.
A nice bloke.
