    Bob brought his wife and ex on tour, and put them in his movie. I might call that passive-aggressive behavior, but I'm not so sure about the passive part.

    Wow... the date of this photo... This likely was taken during the infamous Winter Dance tour I'd guess, and not long after... well... we all know. Of all the pics I've seen on this post, this one is the most moving for me. Never seen it before. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm not sure an ex Goon, a risque comedian and Emma Peel qualify for this thread.

    I might agree if this thread had stayed on topic, but it hasn't. Many of the pics in this thread are well known, not seldom seen, a number of the musicians aren't famous, and in the past few pages, it's devolved into people posting record label promos and even a Johnny Cash marionette.

    No, these three weren't primarily known as musicians. But Benny Hill had a #1 hit in the UK, which is more than some of the famous musicians in this thread ever have had. Peter Sellers' first career was as a jazz drummer, he sang in some movies, and he made a duet album with Sophia Loren that had a couple of hit singles. Diana Rigg sang on stage and screen. At least all three were famous and the photos aren't well known.

    Could be an opening for a new thread topic "what's the criteria for being famous", on the other hand, maybe not, could generate too much heat.:)

    Maybe I don't get out enough, but I don't think I've seen more than a couple of the pics before, out of 54 pages. Fame is in the eye of the beholder.;)

    Still the BESTEST forum thread I've read.

    The Orb. Hope this is not a repeat, as I did not read every page.

    There was a family style restaurant in Omaha, Nebraska that Warren Buffet took Bill Gates to a few years ago. A few days later the restaurant put up a sign that read "Two Billionaires Served".
