3. Martin and Michael

Martin Plimmer and Michael Magenis met on a bus or over a bottle of vodka ... no one is sure. What is certain is they were destined to go places together neither would have reached alone. They became The Men Who Know, sharing 24-hour schnapps-fuelled writing sessions, prank calls to the BeeGees, performances with Eartha Kitt and being sung off stage to the death march - but, above all, an extraordinary friendship.
