“There was no ‘can’t do’. I can do it and I will do it…”
Here’s the final episode of our ongoing mini documentary on the life of a true UK original.
Doug McLaughlan Sidewalk Raconteurs Part 3 deals with the unprovoked machete attack that Doug suffered a few years back and its aftermath, which left him with a brain injury that required immediate surgery and subsequently caused him to develop epilepsy as a result of the trauma.
For those of you who were previously unaware of this horrible story of two people being in the wrong place at the wrong time – you can read about the attack in more detail in our 2015 Doug McLaughlan Unexplained interview.
As you’ll probably have gathered from Parts 1 & 2 though, Dougy isn’t the sort of person to let a trifling incident like being hit in the skull with a machete hold him back, so the final episode deals with his recovery and rehabilitation.
Anyhow, watch the video below and hear from the horses’ mouth, then scroll down for some more archive photography courtesy of Andrew Horsley and Chris Johnson.
