    Saw his first concert tour of the UK in London in 1964.
    A true Rock and Roll legend.

    Your song has ended but your melody will linger on.

    RIP Chuck.

    The top 10 selling singles in the Uk in 1955 were these -

    01 Tennessee Ernie Ford Give Me Your Word
    02 Slim Whitman Rose Marie
    03 Ruby Murray Softly Softly
    04 Eddie Calvert Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White
    05 Frankie Laine With The Mellomen Cool Water
    06 Perez 'Prez' Prado & His Orchestra Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White
    07 Jimmy Young Unchained Melody
    08 Rosemary Clooney & The Mellomen Mambo Italiano
    09 Tony Bennett Stranger In Paradise
    10 Alma Cogan Dreamboat

    That was the year Chuck Berry released this. What a revelation that must have been to a teenager at the time.

    Good point! Although actually his very first race WAS on three wheels - as a sidecar passenger in his dad's racing sidecar outfit.

    She had 98 great years with you, although it doesn't make losing your dog and friend any the easier. Hard luck, John.

    You want to. Had my first dog, a rescue dog for 18 years. Didn't want to through that again but a couple of weeks later someone who worked with my wifesaid her daughter had found a little terrier puppy sat shivering at the side of the road and taken it home. Her dog wouldn't accept it so she had taken it to the RSPCA and said she would pay any costs as long as they kept it until somebody gave it a home. I went to see him and said straight away that we would have him. Had him for 11 years. The wife didn't like been without a dog so we then got another rescue dog who was about 4 years old. Had him for 12 years until last August. Still have another rescue terrier we got 4 years ago when he was less than a year old to keep the other company. Amazing how they bonded, the younger one used to look after him, always checking he was OK.
    They were all different in their own way but have given so much pleasure. Dogs are a lot more preferable than a lot of people. I would say go for it.

    Anyone who loves dogs is OK. Those who love dogs and support City are the pick of the bunch.

    The only autographs I got at the Circle were of Sir Len Hutton and Hull's own Jimmy Binks when I went along to see a City training session.
