We all went to Manchester for the world premier of the musical 'Maggie May', written by Alun Owen and Lionel Bart. It was a musical set in Liverpool and was to feature a group - the Nocturnes, who were resident at the Blue Angel appeared in it, as did Geoff Hughes.
After the show we all went back to the Blue. Judy and her then husband were with us as she was to record an EP of numbers from the show. I was helping Judy play the one-armed bandit by the front door and she suddenly decided she would sing. Behind us was the grand piano, but no one would volunteer to play it (groups in Liverpool actually played numbers such as 'Over The Rainbow'). Later she decided to leave and she and her husband went out to the car. For some reason, Allan, who was inebriated at the time, rushed after them and tried to grab the side of the car, trying to get on the dashboard, shouting that she was barred and wouldn't be allowed in the club again. I don't know what that was all about, but it was a typical incident.
I next saw Judy in London and we used to chat at the Speakeasy and the Revolution clubs. The last time I saw her was at the Revolution when me and Virginia were at a table with Judy and Veronica Lake and the four of us chatted until three in the morning.
