"Can You Tell Who it is yet"? Rolf Harris & Mike Hope


"Can You Tell Who it is yet"? Rolf Harris & Mike Hope
Originally uploaded by MarkieG

This pic was taken of Rolf and Mike (Hope & Keen) at the wrap party of Rolf's Birthday Show in Coventry UK 1968. Lot's of putty!! The interesting thing was the two chaps were both excellent artists, and would be sitting in their dressing rooms painting in between shows.
Both so talented and such lovely, genuine people. There is not much I miss about the music/show business, certainly not the performing (don't know why) but I do muss the commeradera and the friendship. Sign of age perhaps.

  1. What a brilliant picture!

    I grew up been a big fan of Rolf and there was a great Arena documentary on him on the BBC over Christmas - saw him live and met him in York back in 1993 too - what a legend!

  2. Thanks Andy. I'm pleased you like Rolf. I got on with him very well, and later when I opened my Music Shop in Maidenhead, I would see him quite often as he lives on the river there.
    I have a terrific sketch/caricature he did of me one evening when we were out to dinner. It currently lives on my wall in the downstairs Loo!
