Another pop related one. Carol Decker and Ronnie wotsit from 80s pop band T'Pau came round our house in about '87.
Ronnie Rogers was in a pub I was drinking in a few weeks ago.
Wasn't all that surprising as I'd tickets to see them in the venue across the road that night. Shook his hand after the gig, top bloke.
I used to see him all the time in/around the O2 at Finchley road London. He'd had a good run of his own show on Channel 5 before it had been cancelled- thought he was ace on that. Cutting, quite short with guests.
I think he was slightly surprised that someone recognised him. I was addicted to the late night Just For Laughs (Montreal Comedy Festival) show and he was a regular on there.
