Hazel O'Connor

Of all the gigs I did, this was one of the most memorable but for a rather sweet reason.  The promoters, Budget and David Stopps, put flowers in my dressing room and this was a absolute first - no one had ever done that for me before.  They were very good promoters and some years later, I became good friends with them and remain so to this day.
