Tiff...the human signpost...
Bill Phillips: ....with no idea what lies in either direction
I'm not sure I believe you... I mean it could be, there is a slight resemblance, but really?!
Bill Phillips: It is ironic that having failed miserably to make it as a one man band Chris sold all his stuff to Don Partridge who went on to have a number of (admittedly dreadful) hit records. He has the consolation of still being alive unlike Mr Partridge who died in 2010.

Is Mrs. Rattie 2 hiding underneath that hat?? I think Mrs. Rattie IX is happy that Tiff could sell the instrumentss to Don Partidge......
Bill Phillips: Yes indeed. It was ironic that Don Partridge made it big after buying Tiff's equipment. I could have put that better come to think of it

I always wondered if Tiff was a natural blonde. Now I know. smile He's obviously quite versatile.
Bill Phillips: Versatile as in useless at everything?

This is just one funny post! Lol
Bill Phillips: I enjoyed it grin
You aint fooling me. Tiff could never be as absurdly extrovert as this guy. No offence intended Chris.
Bill Phillips: He was younger then and more carefree he became an old curmudgeon after he failed to make it as a musician

Do you know, Bill - someone must have been having me on, when they told me another picture showed Tiff. Thank you so much for this - what a handsome, talented man he really is
Bill Phillips: Handsome? Talented? You haven't met Tiffo clearly wink

At least he's not blowing his own trumpet in this. What was he banging on about at the time? smile
Bill Phillips: Who knows? Probably making as much sense as he does now

I'd never wear a shirt like that!
Bill Phillips: Too conservative for you?

Oh, Chris in his wild Sturm-and-Drang-years! A whole orchestra he is playing! It's a pity that I cannot listen to /look at the 'Blue Eyes'!
Bill Phillips: You are lucky that you cannot Philine
Whoa, there's real aggression in those pointed fingers - can't be Mr. Tiff, though - no Ratty in sight.
Bill Phillips: She was under his hat
He looks like he is having great fun playing with himself.
Bill Phillips: You could have phrased that better Mary
Open day at the funny farm Chris was in ?
Bill Phillips: I think it might have been Stoke garden festival, so similar

I see he has perfected the Antoine de Caunes "silly dance"!
Bill Phillips: Chris would have not looked out of place on eurotrash grin
Very colourful from top to bottom!
Bill Phillips: Dazzling Richard grin

The one man and his rat, band D-) very funny Bill!
Bill Phillips: It amused me Martin.smile
Well, its all very colourful, and has a distinctive range of musical instruments.
Bill Phillips: none of which he could play
Well, he seems to think it's paradise - street corner or junkyard!
Bill Phillips: Self delusional Neil...sad really
So we are to assume that in his formative days was always banging his drum or blowing his own trumpet about something or other.
Bill Phillips: No change really
Hope he is not telling the audience where to go after a lack of response? smile
Bill Phillips: He was more polite in those days
