Hi all
To follow up the interest and intrigue around Jeff my younger brother.



This is a pic of Jeff when he was 12 years old and already working with his band the were called various names but his success was when they were called 'Hello', I was 15-ish when this was taken.
Midge knew him as they both worked in Germany when Midge was in 'Slik'

Cheers Guys

Lovely looking drum kit for the times Chris, tell Jeff I bet it sounded better than some of the kits they've been making the last 2oyears. You just can't get that perfect after ring anymore, easily adjusted to the individuals taste with taping some tissue to it.Really nice picture, great condition for it's age.Thanks Chris

Same here, Laurita! Possibly due to expecting postings in Oxford English in here (except Piggy's, of course). So... shouldn't it be me bruvver then...? biglaugh

Cool photo, Dottore Allen, thanks for sharing.

As I went to bed last night, a lot of things were going through my head (now here's a surprise). Also, I had just been listening to some music. All of a sudden (literally), I had the melody of a new Ultravox song in my head. It sounded brilliant and incredibly ultravoxy. I was composing an Ultravox song! When I can't even play an instrument... But wow - it sounded incredible. When I started working on the lyrics, I must have fallen asleep...

It's gone now. Pfffff.........

Ciao Isabel,
English language is one of my passions, I simply love it and I do like all its variations. I'm glad and quite happy with myself whenever I can understand Piggy's funny posts.
Listening to Chris' interviews I realize I find it at times difficult to understand what he says word by word (this only seldom happens with Midge...) and I have to go through the same bit of dialogue over and over again. I guess I only need more practice: so Chris or whoever has interviewed him in the past, please keep on posting! wink laugh
