    The fella that used to be in Game On with Samantha Janus and the ginger tosser went to the same school as me, but I never knew him. My brother might've done, though, as he was in the same year, I reckon? I can ask him next time we speak, so I'll let you know around Christmas time!

    Ring him NOW! This is important.

    Jason Quealy was a couple of years ahead of me at school.
  5. Now I think about it, my brother was once at a Frank Black (of Pixies fame) solo gig. EVeryone else was only interested in hearing the Pixies' songs, so were standing at the back with their arms folded. Tom, who is a bit of a Frank Black fan, had been dancing away at the front all by himself. In between songs, a chorus of requests for Pixies' songs arose from the audience, and Frank Black silenced everyone, pointed at my brother and said: "I wanna know what this man wants to hear". Tom shouted the name of a song (I forget which) and he just launched into it. Great stuff, I wish I'd been there!

    I couldn't even remember the fella's name, but I just looked it up. He is known as Ben Chaplin. Been in some Hollywood stuff too, looking at his IMDB bit.

    He was/is one of those annoying buggers who are good at everything they turn their hand to. So I doubt it.
  13. Fair enough. I guess we just move in different circles.:laugh:
