    I'm half-way through reading Mr Nice again. I went to one of his lectures at Hull University years ago, in the middle of the lecture, he stops and says to the audience "I'm bored, let go to the pub", so we went to a local pub, got the pints in, and he carried on with his lecture. The man's a legend :slayer:

    Seen him live twice, such an enthralling character, you can't help but feel captivated when he's speaking. Some of the shit he's got up to is just insane. True legend/pioneer.

    He is a fucking ledgend, I read a book called grass about someone called Phil Sparowhawk (I think) which mentioned Howard in a few times so checked out his books. I been helping to mod his site for few years now, had a few benefits like ; ) Seen him a few months ago with my old man in Bristol, was spot on. Mr Nice is a good read, most his other books are aswell. I wanna read the book his mrs wrote about the whole story to see her side on tihngs. Grass is a good book if you like Mr Nice..
