BIG ROCK NEWS!!!
Never mind Led Zeppelin, the big rock news of this week is undoubtedly the sensational announcement that my band, Mike and the Mechanics X, are to play a reunion concert next Saturday night!! Tickets are already selling like hot cakes, and are at present going for as much as £500 each!! So don't delay, call me on my mobile right now and get your ticket for what promises to be the GIG OF THE CENTURY!! It all kicks off next Saturday night in the park (if wet in the church hall).

Big apologies to everyone who was hoping to see myself and my band Mike and the Mechanics X play Live Earth today but sadly we were unable to make it due to unforeseen circumstances (thanks a bunch Farmer Files!)

Mrs Greasy and her strange requests!
I can spill the beans now - that barmy Mrs Greasy was after none other than a life-size replica of her cafe, life-size replicas of Des and Mick's houses and a life-size replica of the church hall!!!! Cor blimey, she don't want much, does she?!?!?!?! Quite what the nutcase wanted them for, gawd knows, but I was happy to oblige! I don't half get some strange requests from this bunch of loons but this really takes the biscuit!!!
Talking of biscuits, I'm getting hungry! Time for a 1.37am snack me thinks!!!

Sorry for not 'blogging' for a while, but I've been stuck in hospital for the past week with RSI, whatever that is. All I know is I've had these pains in my wrist and neck, don't know how I got them, but don't worry, I'm fine now! Anyway, got to go, I've just checked my inbox and there's about twenty e-mails from Mrs Greasy! What on earth does she want?! Doesn't she know I don't DO mopeds?!

Not much too say today, spent all day on Clive's laptop again down- loading empy threes of my new single, 'Llangollen Calling', to ensure it hits the charts on Sunday and holds onto my band's record deal!! Don't panic if you're after a tasty Fast Ford from my garage, Mike's Manic Motors, my nephew, Mick the Manic Mechanic (not to be confused with the 'other' Mick!!) is holding the fort!! To be honest, he's not very good, and he'll probably sell you a spark plug when you ask for a Ford Capri 2.8 Injection, so if he does, just give him a clip round the ear from me, will you? I must admit, I actually sacked him once last year, well that was after he gave away the location of my secret factory to Des where I was building my very own car, the Medford Maniac! Did I ever tell you about that? The world's only car that could travel faster than light!! Sent me back in time ten years! Doctor Who's got nothing on me! You can read the whole story here: www.desandmick.co.uk/chronicles/volumes/26/8/
What's strange though is that my greatest triumph seems to be forgotten by all the others – whenever I remind them about it they don't seem to have any recollection of what happened that day!
By the way, if you've already bought a copy of Mike and the Mechanics X's new single, 'Llangollen Calling', for goodness sake go and buy another one! I've got to make that Top 200 on Sunday!!!!!!
