PAUL (PETER LAWFORD) WILKINSON

Hello. Now I am the Gentleman of this outfit and, as you can see by my photo, I add just a touch of class.

I was born in Wakefield, Jan 8th 1951— coincidentally the same day as Elvis, another Vegas legend. As a child I suffered with an inferiority complex, but I had two ambitions that would, hopefully, improve my lack of self confidence. The first was to play rugby for the Wakefield Wildcats, but this didn't work out. Every time they had a scrum down I thought they were all talking about me!!!! The second was to be a dramatic actor, but my meeting with Gary "Sinatra" Horsfield soon put pay to that idea.

Apart from playing the part on stage I also enjoy playing with words. Click here to see what I mean.

Now I am a full time member of The Fat Pack and part time alcoholic. Although the pack is a democratic organisation I still have no voting rights and the Chairman's vote counts as two. I am also frequently told to sit at the back of the bus, unless I am driving it (which I usually am). My next turn behind the wheel will next January when we are touring Route 66.........More about that later.

While you're here, why not have a laugh at some of my amusing musical memories
