Depending where your mother lives would depend if you heard of him. I first came accross him in 1979 when he was just a fledgling thug. He was a guy with a major chip on his shoulder heralding from Leasowe. For those that came accross his nasty side he will not be missed.
Myself and a lot of kids who had childhoods in the poulton area in the 60's and 70's feared his bullying.If my memory is correct he was badly burnt in a house fire before he was a couple of years old.We could all feel sorry for him after the way that fire changed his life.....but no sorrow can be felt after all the misery he caused in his childhood and beyond to others.
