Glenn Tilbrook of the band Squeeze playing a few songs at Pints Pub, an English pub in
Judging by his solo performance the previous night at the Bluebird Theater, the term “English eccentric” fits Tilbrook to a T. Although hobbled with crutches, Tilbrook led the audience out of the club (in order to take them, he said, to a bar across the street for a drink), before he returned again to the Bluebird’s stage. I was amused at Tilbrook’s antics, but planted and content sitting at the Bluebird’s bar while Tilbrook went M.I.A. However, the manager of the Bluebird was none-too-happy about his clientele having temporarily vanished at the behest of the act performing at his establishment, and he bought a free drink (a kamikaze, I seem to recall) for those of us who remained.
Thanks for generating the free drink, Glenn, and for the musical memories.
