Rick & Sue Cooper

Rick gave me my first job as a DJ in a pub in the City of London called the 'New King Lud' when I was just 16 or 17.
 
At the time, they lived in south London and the most memorable story I can recall is the 'cheese'; sandwiches we both ate after getting home after one particularly heavy night. It wasn't until the next day when Sue asked the question "Where's all my LARD gone?" that we realised our mistake. It still makes me feel ill today!
 
They moved to Bude in Cornwall and despite a phone call just before I left London in 2007, I still haven't managed to get down to see them!
 
Rick went on to have a successful Gary Glitter impersonation business until Glitter himself fell from fame in the late 90's.
