Don't worry, pc (Mummy's only looking for a hand in the snow).
Wasn't that a line from the woodchipper scene in "Fargo"?
That guy Dickie Pride ... looks like he gave Joe Cocker a pointer or two about stage presence ...
Oh, and that sax solo, man was even one note in tune, it sounded like a solo for a different song!
But thanks, pc,I actually had not heard of him! I just did a youtube and wiki search on Dickie Pride. For those who, like me, were not in the know ...http://www.rockabilly.nl/references/messages/dickie_pride.htm
1. Known as the "Sheik of Shake".
2.Obligatory Beatles connection - first signed by Larry Parnes, who signed The (Silver) Beetles to their first foreign tour - Scotland, backing up Johnny Gentle. (Wow!). Apparently shafted by Parnes, and universally thought to never get the break his talent deserved.
3. He died in 1969 of a drug overdose, after a lobotomy and heroin addiction.
