Always wondered what had became of him?

Someone shared this on the Mojo Board just before it went tits up.

I doubt you'll get an answer on here. Although C might remember him! But welcome to the board.

First time I've heard that name. Interesting figure.

He probably was C.

When I was about 12, my brother took too many drugs and was convinced he was Jesus.

Put us through hell, though.

He spent a large portion of his life in mental hospitals and prisons, so being the son of God isn’t all it’s cracked up too be.

I saw him a few times at gigs in London in the 1970s.
His dancing never made sense. I thought he was palsied. Apparently not, though

There were a couple of characters like him in Brighton.
There was Smelly - a hippy who was omnipresent at any gigs - did a great pub quiz in The North Laine; also Roy who would dress as a general or a priest ... or a British Rail guard, mind you I think that one may have been his actual job. There was also Mad Glenn a grinning gangly hippy , who, like Obelix, seemed to have fallen into the ‘potion’ cauldron as a child and never quite came back.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.
