Plus a classic Lop Lop quote ...

Posted by Mark on 01/11/2002 03:58:30 AM

Sorry I forgot to put this in above, but it just shows what a lovely, if slightly mad, bloke Andy Barrett is and I thought it was worth sharing ...

Sorry to name drop, but about 18 months ago I was lucky enough to spend a night checking out Brussels bars with Tim Webb. We wandered into Lop Lop and stood at the bar. Andy wandered over to serve us, and I could see he was looking at Tim as if to say "I know you but I can't think where from". Tim ordered the beers and when Andy brought them back he asked "I am sorry about this, but I am sure I know your face". At which point Tim introduced himself (this also speaks volumes for Tim in that he never forces himself on any Landlord ... he prefers to remain anonymous so he doesn't get "special treatment"). Of course Andy was very pleased to have Tim in his bar, but it was what he said to Tim that made me laugh. Apparently according to Andy, about two weeks earlier, two of the Spice Girls (Mel C and Emma !!) had been into Lop Lop together. This lead Andy to quote "You know, I get all the stars in here ... one week it's the Spice Girls, the next its Tim Webb !!!

The look on Tim's face was an absolute picture !!!!

Cheers !! Mark.
