/ Johnny Dawes hits the slate quarries!!!!
Cool! Isn't he releasing an autobiography soon?
So good to see Johnny back recently & now this !!. A few years ago I did fear for his demise but fantastic to see him back near or even at the top of his game.
I'll bet that he hurt his fist?... Personally, I'd rather hit John Rushby. With a shovel.
Great stuff go Johnny go go go!
But nice to know he is still top of his game! :)
Fabulous news. I like (I mean, don't like the sound of!) this new technique of laybacking using your cheek!
Yes, the words 'of my face' came as a great relief, didn't they?
Interesting he says on that link he's in the process of creating a new E10 in Wales. He's obviously fitter than he's been for a while, that's for sure, but still I'll believe that when I see it. Presumably this is The Meltdown redivivus. I forget what the story was there - a hold fell off the overlap and was due to be resculpted in gold, IIRC - but was the story that that made it impossible, or just spoiled the thing and Johnny lost interest?
Interesting link on the Meltdown theme. I guess Caff didn't do it in 2009, then, unless I missed it. I was wondering why no-one seemed to have thried it these last 20 years; perhaps people actually did and just haven't been able to do it.
It better be a strong shovel, Rubbishy's face is made of Titanium these days! ;-)
He's the Man!
Or one of the wings on the Mot?
A bit of E7 on-sight cheek-backing, on a whim. Total legend :-)
