From bygone years...

I was contacted today by an old School friend of Neil Sedaka's, who said he was a "very sweet, likeable person" I have asked her to write a tribute to Neil telling us all about what he was like in his school days, and also asked if she ever saw him play, and if so what was it like?! Hopefully she will get back in touch soon and we can get a fascinating insight into what it was like to be around Neil when he was a youngster.

However, I cannot guarantee that she will do this for me, but the contact I have had with her got me thinking about life before Laughter In The Rain - specifically what the wonderful cast were up to before the tour began! Enjoy these snaps from memory lane....
