The Ronnie McLean Story

Colin Aitchison has sent me this clipping relating the saga of the late Ronnie McLean's tooth which parted company with Ronnie's mouth whilst he was eating a corned beef sandwich. At the time ('70s) the event received publicity on a par with the end of the war in Vietnam.
Also attached is this mp3 of a Radio Newcastle interview with the trombonist conducted by Richard Pigg. The tooth also features in this one.
