Train Poem (1)

Dave Hill
Today on the train
We passed a small garage called
Dave Hill Motors
I wonder if that's the same Dave Hill
Who wore those dangly earrings
In Slade?
At the height of his fame
Dave Hill bought a big house
(as pop stars did in those days)
not realising
it was next door to a girl's school

I was tempted to buy a copy of "The Smell Of Reeves & Mortimer' VOL. 2 in a charity shop today. I noticed it had them dressed as Slade on the back cover. I remember it being quite funny, them all sitting around Dave's house in Wolverhampton or Dudley or wherever it was supposed to be. Then I remebered we had that video already.
