Sir,in the very early eighties,myself and a lady friend were visiting
Jersey (channel Islands). Matt was appearing at the 'Watersplash'
venue, and of course being a great fan of Matt, we attended one
evening. It was of course a great show and Matt as usual was very
'one to one' with his audience. I asked him if he would perform,
'If I never sing another song', which he did.
We didnt know whether or not it was in his repetoire for that evening,
but he sang as though he was singing just to us. In the show that
evening was also an irish comedian, we had seen before, but very
funny indeed. We were talking to him after the show at the bar,
and said how much we had enjoyed him but also our great favourite
We were so surprised when he said would you like to go to his dressing
room and meet him, we jumped at the chance. We were welcomed in
by his lovely wife Micky, and she introduced Matt to us. We thanked
him for singing one of our favourites, and spoke to him for a few
moments, in which time he autographed our programme. It was a wonderful
experience never to be forgotten!!!!
Thank you Micky, heres to the memory of the greatest singers of
modern day, and a gentleman, and so down to earth guy, may his recordings
and video's never be forgotten.
