Regarding Mike's bendings of the truth, I can't help but think that was out of fear of his boss. We all know how DC ruled the band with an iron fist and they had to do whatever he told them and that arrangement seemed to remain in place even after the DC5 split. Rick and Denis both passed away without ever bad mouthing Dave in public... Len keeps his silence to this day. Now doesn't that strike you as unusual that all the ex-members of a band from the 60's kept quiet and evasive about their history?

There were some interesting moments in the early 90's when Mike was interviewed by Record Collector and he was clearly VERY guarded with his answers. He was asked about session men being used and he simply stated "I don't wish to speak about that" and there was another loaded question he evaded answering as well. I guess the shadow of DC hovered over him for the rest of his life and Mike got used to telling his own version of DC's Disney-fied version of the DC5 to everyone including Charlie.

We also must not forget what happens when a story gets passed from person to person verbally, and there can be no doubting Charlie remembers parts of what Mike told her and filled in the rest herself resulting in this contradictory account that clearly bears no semblance to what actually happened.
