Great article on the Beano Burst!

In the midst of the nonsense being banded about, my own bit of silliness almost qualifies as evidence based material.

Not only did we find Beano, but we then proceeded to eat the bugger.....
Now all I need is some Bazoka bubble gum ( I will also accept Tops bubble gum as well seeing as it's almost the start of Baseball season )

I'm sure many have already done something similar, but I was messing around doing some colourisation in my video software on a few of those old Beano burst images. Doesn't add any extra regarding identification at all, but it does help bring the image a bit more to life :)

Please yerself, but the Krays were real people, not fictional, and they weren't the only ones by a long way.
Don't forget, Clapton was a drug addict... maybe his dealer turned up for payment?
He wasn't an addict until 1971/72. This was 6 years before. I doubt The Krays or anyother hoodlums gave a shit about a guitar as the money was small change to those guys compared to what they wanted to have. I'm sure they could make what that amount is off of one girl they would "rent out" for the night and they made much more than that off of their drug deals. Besides Clapton could get any amount of money he needed by calling Robt. Stigwood's office.

Maybe Kirk Hammet now has Beanos case! He has Greenie.
I remember a story from Gary Moore at some point describing how his flat was searched by the police for drugs and they destroyed Greeny's (Beano's) case, mentioning how the purple/pink lining was all torn out, so unfortunately, if that was really Beano's case, it's long gone.
