What's your tenuous claim to fame?

and definitely voids any insurance you might have.

Still, cheap fare if they split it evenly.
Probably all off to the BAFTA awards ceremony or something, I imagine.
 
I've taken a booking in our studio for 2 hard core porn films. If anybody famous shows up I'll let you know!

I'll do it but it'll either have to be a short film or I'll need a nob double!:eek:

I babysat for Liz Donovan, backing singer and friend of Hazel O'Connor, in 1982.

I was the bass player for a band called Sakrosanct in 1883 though I doubt that counts as a tenuous link to fame by any stretch.

My dad used to work for Bad manners so when I was 5 or 6 I was on the stage in front of 5000 nutters.
Oh and I know one of his Daughters.

You know one of your dad's daughters?! What about the others? Just how big is your house! ;)

I stood next to Fish at a footie game - he couldnae sing worth a f** there either ;)
I used to follow Marillion before they become famous (if indeed they ever were). Bought several drinks for Fish and band members over the years. Have an original pre-record deal studio recording of some of their now famous songs "Forgotten Sons", "Chelsea Monday", "Garden Party", "He Knows You Know", Market Square Heroes" and some unknowns.

I think that's well deserving of fame

You must have been the world's first rock band :rolleyes:

Well, famous to Marillion fans. :rolleyes:

Kayleigh was just a money spinner. Their other stuff is a bit heavier, see the lyrics to "Forgotten Sons":-

Armalite, street lights, nightsights
Searching the roofs for a sniper, a viper, a fighter
Death in the shadows he'll maim you, he'll wound you, he'll kill you
For a long forgotten cause, on not so foreign shores
Boys baptised in wars

Morphine, chill scream, bad dream
Serving as numbers on dog tags, flak rags, sandbags
Your girl has married your best friend, loves end, poison pen
Your flesh will always creep, tossing turning sleep
The wounds that burn so deep

Your mother sits on the edge of the world
W when the cameras start to roll
Panoramic viewpoint resurrect the killing fold
Your father drains another beer, he's one of the few that cares
Crawling behind a Saracen's hull from the safety of his living room chair
Forgotten sons, forgotten sons, forgotten sons

And so as I patrol in the valley of the shadow of the tricolour
I must fear evil, for I am but mortal and mortals can only die
Asking questions, pleading answers from the nameless faceless watchers
That stalk the carpeted corridors of Whitehall

Who orders desecration, mutilation, verbal masturbation
I in the guarded bureaucratic wombs

Minister, minister care for your children, order them not into damnation
To eliminate those who would trespass against you
For whose is the kingdom, the power, the glory forever and ever, Amen
Halt who goes there, Death, approach friend

You're just another coffin on its way down the emerald aisle
When your children's stony glances mourn your death in a terrorist's smile
The bomber's arm placing fiery gifts on the supermarket shelves
Alley sings with shrapnel detonate a temporary hell
Forgotten Sons

From the dole queue to the regiment a profession in a flash
But remember Monday signings when from door to door you dash
On the news a nation mourns you unknown soldier, count the cost
For a second you'll be famous but labeled posthumous

Forgotten sons, forgotten sons
Peace on earth and mercy mild, Mother Brown has lost her child
Just another Forgotten Son
