Damien on… Cannon And Ball
I recall an occasion when I was driving down a country lane, on my way to a show-business party.
The unfamiliar route – combined with my speed, due to my eagerness to hob-nob with celebrities – caused me to lose control of my vehicle on a sharp corner and pile into a tree.
The car was CRUSHED – but since I had been wearing a seatbelt, whilst being TRAPPED in the mangled automobile, I was relatively unscathed.
After a few minutes, a car came along. It contained Tommy Cannon, Bobby Ball and their wives – who, as it turned out, were on their way to the same party as myself. Seeing my predicament, they stopped to help.
This was YEARS before mobile phones, so Bobby and his wife drove off to look for a telephone, to ring the emergency services – leaving Tommy and his wife to help me all they could.
Which turned out to be a break for me – since it resulted in my being dragged from the wreckage by the Cannons.
(My name’s Damien – don’t forget to tip your waitress!)
