    Saw JR live at the old Baileys in Derby

    Man that was one class act, completely controlled the stage and the audience and one of the few who sounded better singing live.
    Brilliant night out never forgot it. Party
    Massive loss RIP JIMMY

    PS went to see R. Dean Taylor the next week and he was so crap he was booed off and they put a disco on Surrender

    Same happened many moons ago at Baileys when I went to see PJ Proby, he was even drunk on stage. Seen better at karaoke nights!
