There's an often repeated anecdote from someone(can't remember who) about the Winters brothers appearence at the Glasgow Empire.

Basically it involves Mike walking onto the stage & getting a 'warm Glasgow welcome' from the audience & things continued from there, culimating with Bernie sticking his head through the curtain.

'Christ. There's 2 of them!'

I am sure he and his late brother Bernie and their mate Schnorbitz will all be meeting up together again now.

RIP Mike

Bernie rented Schnorbitz, I believe.

RIP Mike Winters. My (also sadly departed) father once had a right old barny with him on the motorway heading down to Bournemouth in the mid-late 60s . He was in some sort of souped up American muscle car and started tailgating my father in his Vauxhall Victor and my dad shouted some obscenity at him as he (eventually) came up beside our car, to which Winters simply raised 2 fingers and sped off. Ahhh, memories.

Eric was once asked what he and Ernie would be if they hadn't become comedians. The answer: Mike and Bernie Winters.

I'm not old enough to remember them on TV but my grandparents saw them at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool many years ago.
