Re: Neil and Chris - Alcohol

There's a lot of drinking on their early tours. Just because it's champagne and white wine doesn't make it different. Chris talks in the Discovery DVD booklet about drinking alcohol during the concert, not just before or after. And they take strong sedatives/sleeping pills on transcontinental fligh...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

My special edition arrived yesterday. so thrilled. I've thanked the vendor already, but if you happen to be a Forum member, just to say again so grateful and you were very generous to let it go at the original published price.
