Charlie not really big on pillow talk

By Hugo Duncan

When Brendan Quinn was riding the crest of an entertainment wave, he was managed by the late Charlie McBrien, from Omagh.

Given that he was seldom out of the Irish charts and was known for his very slick stage show, Brendan invariably had a very full diary.

It was during one particularly busy spell that some of the musicians in the band at that time complained that they seemed to be either travelling or playing.

They felt that they were being deprived of their sleep, a fact which they mentioned to Charlie.

In typical no-nonsense fashion, Charlie replied: "It's just like this boys - you'll just have to sleep in a hurry!"
