He was a sleazeball though. Exploiting young women for the sexual gratification of sad, dirty old men.

He was a bit tacky ins a disco way. I'm not sure how he exploited anyone though.

One of his early ventures was Penthouse nightclub in Sheffield which later turned into the best rock club in the north - Rebels.

Sadly due to elf n safety, Rebels closed its doors in 1996 and i wish they would re-open.

Say Crumbs as he copiously 'laments' on the curveball idea of grid boys.
