My dad had a restaurant in the mid to late eighties. I worked there as maitre d barman/wine waiter. He ended up setting on a chef who had worked at stringfellows London for about twenty years. He was an ace fella and a great chef, Nick the Greek.. he only had lovely things to say about peter. One time I took a phone call for Nick and it was the man himself. He wanted Nick to go to new York and work for him there. He offered him at least double what we were paying him plus free accommodation.  Nick turned it down. I couldn't believe it. When I asked him why he said it was because he was in his late fifties, didn't want to move to new York and wasn't interested in the money.  He was a huge gambler , he was teetotal and he said the only difference it would make would be extra bets each week. Peter kept ringing back and begging him to go but he wouldn't  he took it very graciously and wished him all the best. He still kept in touch and occasionally he would ring.  I would have the odd phone conversation with him and he used to ask how the business was going, wish us all the best and I'd have a laugh with him. He used to say he'd try come up and eat but I said don't bother unless you fetch me two fitties

Stringfellow was a nice bloke behind it all.. a really nice bloke.. and pips right about the mojo club. He was very helpful to a lot of bands in the 69s, the small faces being one. He spent a bit of time with Steve Marriott too in 91 before he died. Rip Peter

Although they did come at a price. I got home last night pissed up and decided to put suede protector on them in the kitchen.. I went overboard with the spray to double protect them. Ten minutes later I walked back in the kitchen to admire them and went arse over tit on the slippy floor. Went down hard. I thought I'd broke my arm but it's just badly bruised.  I have broke my finger though. Bastard

Selby is quite a bit better I think.. very good boxer.   Josh will have to work harder than he's ever worked. He needs to have a huge work rate per round.. with the crowd roaring his every punch it's doable.  But Selby seems supremely calm and confident

Head says Selby heart says Warrington

I've got a spare now..free to a good home if anyone wants it
