I think David's remark was rather below the belt  Wink

BTW for filler info, Charnock Richard July Wakes festival, Lancs., July 77. Here's a report of the '76 and '77 one.

Re the tale of jumping in the lake I think that's apocryphal as a) I don't remember it and I think I would have, and b) I didn't photograph it and I'm pretty sure I would have done had it happened.  It was a sweltering summer's day and there was banter about jumping in the lake (between the stage and the crowd). Swarb was just preparing for that eventuality...

I was there.

Simon had a tee shirt on sayinf Nil Illegitimi Carborundum (Dont let the bastards grind you down) . Charnock Richard was also a show jumping arena and there was awater feature in front of the stage . Swarb joked to the crowd that the first member of the audience to jump in couls have Simon's shirt. Someone duely jumped in and claimed it so Simon replied with and the next can have Swarb's trousers. Hence the debagging. Peggy  came to the microphone and muttered " If I'd known this was happening I'd have worn me coat"

Thanks all!  I knew I had heard something about it, but that fills in some of the holes for me

That photo is crying out for a tabloid headline... Semi-naked Swarb and shirtless Simon Shock!

Just as well Swarb hadn't decided to go commando that day.   Shocked

Jeez, so all this time Simon has been notorious for being hung like a horse, and yet somehow this had escaped me?

Well I imagine Dave 'Bollock On' Pegg's book (which I have to read) is fun filled... Smiley
If he missed any corkers I will, a Goat, fireworks and the wonderful 'leisurely sightseeing trip' to Zurich for a gig with Deep Purple come to mind....
