But how delighted I was to bump into this guy in Harlow town centre yesterday.
Black Teddy Boys are few and far between, but they are out there. I remember so well the guy who was always at the Royalty in Southgate, North London, in the late 70s and early 80s, who was totally deaf. He danced like a maniac to the beat of the music. I don't recall his name, but he was just great.
I tried to talk to this guy in Harlow, but nothing would stop him bopping.
The track, by the way, is 'Shake your money maker', by Elmore James (1961).
