Dennistoun Walk - author seeking local tips!

Hi - my name is Stephen Millar, and I am writing a book Glasgow Hidden Walks. I am researching a Dennistoun Walk and was looking for any unusual anecdotes, stories or information that would help me - and later walkers - get a good feel for the area. Eg, Lulu lived here, that house was haunted by a poltergeist, pop band practiced there, ghost signs on a certain building or site of a community garden etc. I've got a fair amount of info on history, architecture and some more modern stuff, but locals always know more. Any suggestions appreciate. cheers Stephen (author Tribes of Glasgow, London Hidden Walks, Edinburgh Hidden Walks..)
