I'm going gun-ho for charity!
WHEN my rock and roll pals and I played the Heartbeat charity concert at Birmingham's NEC in 1986, little did we realise just how much enthusiasm would be drummed up.
We were raising cash to help the Birmingham Children's Hospital and the show boasted a who's who of Midland rock and pop, including ELO, Roy Wood, Robert Plant and The Moody Blues. From there our charity campaign snowballed, and soon we had all manner of events taking place. Here I am, raising a firing pistol to start a bicycle ride.
Imagine if I wandered into the city centre carrying a gun these days. I'm sure armed cops would pounce on me!
