The 'Axe man'

Recommended Posts

There used to be a large longhaired guy who's job was to collect glasses in the salutation I believe.... he was definately ga ga..... some say too many drugs!!! Is this chap still floating around? He was also a regular at rock city in late 80's..

My only hope now is he's not a member on this forum!!!

ps. The term 'axe man' was my friends and I!!!!

Sounds like Axeman. A bit simple but pretty harmless apart from the aroma.

He used to wander round the Tap collecting glasses even though he didn't actually work there.

I saw the poor bu99er set on by about a dozen 'Mods' outside the Wimpey near the Odeon, he did no more than to drag himself back to his feet , they legged it ' and in his anger he crashed both his fists against the window of said Wimpey . God did it rattle , I thought the whole building was going to come down !!

Does anybody remember the big guy who was a bit unsteady on his pins that just wondered around the city? I think it would have been in the 80/90's.
He wore denims, his jacket had Hells Angels on the back. He had long unkempt hair and l think he wore a sweat band across on his head. I never saw him in any pubs just walking often muttering to himself.
I have no particular reason for asking but he was a regular in the city and I have not spotted him for years.
