    i went school with cliff hall's son,cliff retired to australia and has since passed away. my gran loved him as he always used to stop and say hello and often gave her a lift to go shopping. they led the community singing at the 89 cup final.

    He was and I used to play cricket with his son at school. My dad was a big fan and I had to listen to the ink is black and other favourites ha ha. Think they had their own tv show at one stage

    It's a beautiful day in the Ozarks!
    Our whole class in primary school had to go watch them once. Our teacher, Mr Prince, was the brother of Norman, their lead singer. Looked just like him too.
