I fail to remember the company Mike worked for. Mike was a great Bruce Springsteen fan (before he became well known). I remember him breaking his leg (could have been arm) falling off Keith Denny´s Bike (he was on the back) one evening near to the Darenth Tavern.
Whilst at college he lived in Bristol. He was friendly with a girl from Wilmington who he may have continued to see after leaving. Ref
