Georgie Fame



Well, here's something.

  1. Him I had to look up.

    Apparently he was married to the Marchioness of Londonderry (but only after it proved that he was in fact the father of the putative heir, which queered that gig for her). She later jumped from a bridge. I think I can see why.

  2. I wonder if he's going commando.

  3. ...with our favourites "Pan's People", as I live and breathe! Alan Price and Georgie Fame were massive in the 70s in the UK - the equivalent of Simon & Garfunkel in the States, I suppose, but bluesier - with their own show, plus guest slots on top-ratings shows such as "Morecambe & Wise" and "The Two Ronnies". A national treasure, indeed - and I often wanted to explore his "treasures" as well! Jx

    PS I wonder if he is going commando, too

    1. Indeed, I found this whilst perusing Pan's People clips! I was most intrigued.

      Believe it or not, they used to show The Two Ronnies here in Chicago back in the 70s, on PBS. My friends and I watched every British show we could back then. Like many, our introduction was Python and Masterpiece Theatre.

    2. I can't imagine what the denizens of Illinois must have made of the Two Ronnies' particularly British sense of humour! Like this - a particular favourite of mine... Jx

    3. I was just a teenager at the time (albeit a pretentious one), and though I knew there was stuff I wasn't getting, was pleased with myself for the few things I did get, or at least fancied that I did.

  5. Re: The Two Ronnies- I loved when the little one started to tell a story where the humor was all in the asides, and most of the time he never actually finished the story.

    1. I would have preferred he wear a snazzy suit with a nehru jacket.

    2. Or maybe just a smart collar and tie and a sultry stare... Jx
