Was it winning Eurovision? The number one singles? A gig? The reunion (in any of its forms?)
The recording years seem like a lifetime ago to me now so I find it quite difficult to recall much of what went on and how I felt about it.
Not that I would describe it as a "favourite" memory as such, but the most vivid time for me was probably after the coach crash. I remember watching the news and checking my dads paper every day for updates on mikes health.
When Mike finally began to show signs of improvement I recall that it was described as a Christmas miracle, and it really did feel like it. I don't know if it was true or not but one article said that Mike had previously had the last rites read to him and it all seemed rather bleak.
I kept a scrapbook of all the newspaper clippings about the crash, adding new articles as each day passed. One of my big regrets is that it got thrown away some years later, it would be amazing to re-read the articles again now.
