Michael Eavis - Somerset coal miner

It's not a well-known fact but everbody's favourite festival organiser was working in the Somerset coalfields and it saved Worthy Farm from being sold. Michael Eavis turned up at the Radstock Museum recently for a miner's reunion and tells the tale here. He worked at New Rock Pit Stratton-on-the-Fosse. Respect.
