Hello Kev', I first met Mike in the late 1950's on one of the Gigs that the DC5 played along with my Band 'The Walkers'. It was only later that I got to know him well at the time I started written songs for the Band. Dave used to bring him over to run through the songs I had written and leave him with me for a couple of hours while I sorted out a key that suited Mike's voice as I wrote in a key that suited my deep voice, while Mike had a higher voice, so a song I had written in 'C', I would have to transpose it to a key like 'F', 'G', or 'A'. After we had sorted out a suitable key we would 'Jam' for a while and talk till Dave came back to collect Mike. At first I thought Mike was quite, he did not consider himself to be a great singer, but I heard what was there and told him he had a great style, but he never really believed in himself and could not hear what the rest of the world heard.
