I saw him on his British debut in 1964 at the old Finsbury Park Astoria. It was the second most exciting event in my life up till then.

I have been quite pleased with the way the UK media has covered his death. It was top story on our radio. Coverage I've seen has focused on his lyrics and the way they connected with teenage lives. There has been hardly any mention of 'My Ding-a-Ling' (which is what I would have feared) but a real appreciation of his place in modern popular culture.
