"Ii used to look after Peter Price and this night he decided to put on these giant Gary Glitter type boots on. He fell off the stage.
There was an astrologer on as well and Bernard Manning was compering. Just before Bernard brought the astrologer on, he said to the audience "He should have been here half hour ago - he could have told Pete Price he was going to fall!"

Very sad to relate the recent passing of a dear friend of mine from many years ago the very talented Stephen Shaw (Trombone) Steve began his career with Shep's Banjo Boys before joining Vic Lezal's Professionals at the Ritz Ballroom in Manchester.Upon leaving the Ritz he joined the New Vaudeville Band (Winchester Cathedral fame) and then onto the famed Pasadena Roof Orchestra..Over the last number of years he has worked with many well known bands including the Joe Loss Orchestra, Ray McVay Orchestra and the popular Manchester based Mark Gillbanks Orchestra along with many others. Steve was just 60 and will be sadly missed by many.RIP my friend......
