Not only that but I noticed the League were headlining, along with ABC, in Skegness when I was there a couple of weeks ago! Closely followed by a Neil Diamond impersonator.

I wasnt there but I heard that Phil slipped and fell badly running about on the wet stage, sending Susan into a fit of giggles.

I remember Phil working as an OT Porter at Fulwood Hospital when I was working there as a Joiner back in the 70's

The Human League where absolutely brilliant at the City Hall on Wednesday 10 December. Well done and thank you; Philip, Joanne, Sue Ann and the whole crew. It was wonderful to see that great Sheffield venue rocking again!

Peace & Love, Wazzie Worrall.......

He was on a BBC Four documentary tonight about TOTP 1980. The girls too from Human League. He says that Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark pinched the style of music from them. But they said not.

He says he loved Top of the Pops and was so pleased to be on it. Even though the show was not considered to be cool at the time.

Used to see Phil in the Yorkshireman in the city centre quite often on Friday nights back in the early '90s
