Careful...dragging in Ian's family...especially wife and daughter is a good way to evaporate any good will we have with him and, maybe, get a hit put out on you...perhaps we should drop the subject, no?
Great photos, I never seen before. Thanks for posting. Personally, for better or for worse I am interested in Ian's personal life. This man has been quite a player in my life, all be it not directly. It is natural to take an interest.
Great phots of ian and family at home!!!! The sight of Shona, barely dressed, was available during the War Child tour when she brought Ian his flute in Sea Lion trainer/dominatrix gear...pretty much panties, jacket and top-hat!
By the way, the first photo. Open white door to the left. Isn't that the studio?
Yes, that was the studio through that door at Pophleys, their old Buckinghamshire home near Radnage. They had a working farm called Grange Farm about 3-5 miles away where Kenny Wylie had his office and the tour props etc were stored.
And the slightly preposterous, over-the-top idea that you can cram 8,040 years of history into 52 minutes, why mess about? Get on with it – do something challenging.
I think I found a photo of Gael but I think it's from 2006. Scroll down to see the girl with the spikey hair.I forgot how to upload photos or I would have just posted it here. She looks a lot like brother, James.

tootull: The minstrel in the gallery looked down upon the smiling faces...Then he called the band down to the stage and he looked at all the friends he'd made...And threw away his looking-glass - saw his face in everyone.

maddogfagin: Sounds fine by me apart from the prunes - can't stand the blighters. Just don't get me started on the subject of figs

nonrabbit: Very good Ducky - just be a wee bit careful with the carbs and sugar levels - I'm an expert ....theory wise

onewhiteduck: Cheers Dog and Bunny. Nearly had a bar of fruit&nut last night. Figs are the devils fruit,bloody horrible. Oh and while we on food, don't like smoked salmon. John West out of a tin with vinegar/pepper - thats the boy for me. Oh and Rachel Allen lovely.

JTull 007: Honey Nut Shredded Wheat for breakfast. Lots of fiber or is that fibre?

nonrabbit: Fiber - fibre? So what ...don't get stuck on it!!

nonrabbit: Tinned salmon is better for you than tinned tuna. Fresh is always best though. Get fishing!

tootull: Tell me, "All right." Got a sell-by date. Soon be out of stock...I could be on your shelf, could be the risk you take. I'm a cup of hot coffee, I'm a piece of cake...I'm your spicy filling, I'm your low-fat spread...Tell me, "All right."

Equus: Don't want to be a fat man, people would think that I was, just good fun...

tootull: Well, I don't care to eat out in smart restaurants. I'd rather do a Vindaloo: take away is what I want. I was down at the old Bengal, having telephoned a treat...I may not be a fat man and I'm not exactly small...Don't play no tambourine

tootull: I'd put some spice in your rice. You'd give me blues in the stew. I'd give you catfish jumping...Who's got the cheque on this hot dinner? Who's got the tabs on the crab?
Oct 1, 2014 22:38:51 GMT
tootull: I've had better deep discussions with this plate of soft-shelled crab... Is there a lobster in the offing, or just a fifty dollar cheque?

JTull 007: She was helping out at the back-stage... Stopping hearts and chilling beer. Yes, and her legs went on for ever. Like staring up at infinity Through a wisp of cotton panty Along a skin of satin sea.
