Meet up was good as always and really nice to meet so many new people (even if conversation in a bar 'that' loud is difficult!)....bit of a shame that there was a mix-up with Simon. I can only apologise for us having moved on when he returned...it absolutely was not on purpose. I don't think that anyone thought that he would be returning within 30 minutes to be honest, not after the way that he staggered out of the bar! :P

We'll do it again for sure...

Can a mod unstick this topic from the top now and return it to the WWRY forum please? :)

No, but Mike Rutherford from Genesis was there. I remember El saying that he thought that he looked famous (no, not El, the Rutherford character)...and he was, it was him. Shame 'our' bassist wasn't there!

When I said earlier Sam Fox was staggering to her taxi, I wasn't kidding, she was as pissed as a fart.

Here's WHY she was there!

For those of you who were simply dying to find out how many times I've seen WWRY, and were devastated by my inability to work it out, the answer is 5. My first WWRY QOL meet up in October 2005, Freddie's 60th, WWRY's 5th anniversary, Freddie's 65th, and WWRY's 10th anniversary.

So I guess my next one will be Freddie's 70th!

Just back after an unnecessarily convoluted return trip involving a coach (never again), train & car. Have to say it was an amazing night, and so nice to finally catch up in person with some of you - thank you for making me feel so welcome!

Didn't see Clapton, did see Emma Thompson and couldn't work out if that was Kylie who came in at the same time as Bill Oddie! If that was Mrs Oddie then hats off to the 70 year old shortarse!

On our way back to our hotels fd and I walked around the back of the Dominion just as Brian was leaving - and getting badgered by a now small crowd, one of whom claimed to have been there since 2pm. Takes all sorts I guess! :P

Mrs Ace has told me that having seen the show three times is enough which is probably true. It is an expensive night out when you count the travel, meals, hotel and tickets.

I'm giving the Hamersmith gigs a miss so I've no idea of the next time I'll get to a meet up.

Having said that, I do meet up with board members on a reasonably regular basis now anyway.

Btw, apologies to Kes! First time we ever spoke and I couldn't understand his question, three times (we were at opposite ends of the table, it was loud, and my ears aren't what they were...). I'll come over a bit closer for a chat next time. :P
