David Essex still has that twinkle, but David Cassidy doesn't seem to have it now although he was my all time favourite, I was going to go to America and marry him (I was 14/15 at the time. Have just started to read Allison Pearson's book "I Think I Love You" - it's like a walk down memory lane this week.

Have got to get that book Jennifer. I agree about David Cassidy, its a bit sad when you see him now.
Those were the days !! Or not, I think I was angst ridden most of the time !

I can't believe David Essex in EE's, nooooooooo! Is that my Fab 208, 1975 annual? Love this xx

My lovely dad gave me David Essex's biography for Christmas... he knows I had a big crush on him circa 1975. He even took me to the Hammersmith Apollo or possibly Shepherds Bush Empire to see Dave in concert. He still fondly reminds me that we had to "wait 4 hours" for him to finally get up on stage. Rockstars, eh? Memories. Love 'em.

jane

David was SO much better than all the other teen idols. Yes Sarah it could well be your FAB 208 album!!

OMG yet another reason to watch Easties ( loving the Carole / Connor storyline but what's happened to baby James ?) Anyway, I digress ... the beautiful Mr Essex is going to be Alfie's dad ? Wonder who will make a bee-line for him ? My money's on Glenda ..... please no, I couldn't bear it. He was my ultimate pin-up in the 70s ( sad to say I was well into my advanced 20s) and I'd still run off with him even after all these years .....

jane

He was probably more in your age range Sue, we were 14 which was probably wrong.
Glenda is bound to make a play for him. HOW much surgery has she had? She looks younger now than when she was in Dempsey and Makepeace. In fact she looks younger than her fictional soap daughters!!

Rock On! David was my fav (as we said in the 70's...) it was the fairground vibe - that gold earring and the naughty glint... Wont be watching him going to take his smalls into the laundrette though!

sue Evans

Yes, he is defo my age and not yours Jane, so hands off !! I actually met him once in Liverpool. Mr Evans was working for the NME and I got him to enveigle an interview with him when he was playing at the Empire Theatre. Can't tell you what it felt like pushing through the hoards of screaming girls and actually being escorted to his dressing room. Then I blew the whole thing by lighting up a Gauloise ( I don't even smoke but thought it'd look cool ) and he started choking and had to open the window. God knows what I did to his vocal cords !!

jane

Gauloise SUE !!! Actually weve all been there and the coloured cocktail cigarettes, what were they called. Sobriane or something!!

Well there was Sobraine Black Russian ( black with gold tip) and then they did the Sobraine Cocktail ones which were gorgeous colours.
Yes there I was in David's dressing room puffing on a full strength Gauloise -- bit like lighting up a Senior Service full strebngth !! Not sure why I thought he'd be impressed. Oh the faux pas of our youth .....

For any folks invested in more and better resident contribution, that is a knock back, i believe. But strangely enough, the newest one-pager Can involve many responsibilities around consultation.
