Last minute surprise: Mervyn ' Spam' Spence joined the party at Birmingham Town Hall (pictured here with us and the Hamsters) and sat in with Wishbone Ash for the song Cell of Fame. Excellent job sir! How do you do it? Anyone who remembers Raw to the Bone from the 1980s will remember what a cracking little Nigel Gray - produced album that was. Spam and I relived it all over again tonight with his performance. "I had a blast and so did the guys. Thanks Sir - you rock! The thing was, I had to follow you, on vocals. I never thought about that pre show".
