Thanks Frank, and drop in any time (please)! Read more…
Spotted in Ryans…
Smiley Bolger dropped in to check out Left, Right and Centre last Thursday. Drop in and see what the fuss is about Dublin’s best kept secret…
An oldie but a great one… again courtesy of Mojo Magazine… Buddy Rich plays the Muppet Show.
From Muppet Wiki:
Buddy Rich: “The thing that’s good about it is; I felt like a Muppet myself; I was like a kid, playing with those guys, because that’s how they made me feel.
