Colin "Fingers" Henry was on this year's Britain's Got Talent, he did the same act that I saw him do at The Dial House in 1975

 

Was having a drink with Fingers a few months ago ,he is living at Barnby Dunn Doncaster and has done for a few years.He is in his seventies and has just packed up doing the cruise ships that he has done for the last ten to fifteen years.Been all around the world so he as made a good life for himself.

The late Paul Shane did a lot of clubs in the sixties and early seventies, around south Yorkshire. Funny bloke, could sing a bit as well. Bobby Knutt was another funny lad too

 

Yes Paul Shane, a Rotherham born bloke and I think Tony Christie was from Conisbrough and he played the Sheffield and Rotherham area clubs before finding record fame early '70s.
