Fantastic opening last night for Chasing Bono, written by Ian and Dick. Dick Clement flew over to attend in the company of a few real rock luminaries. Ronnie Wood, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Steve Balsamo, etc. And of course, Neil McCormick on whose great book this comedy / musical is based. The cast, direction and set design, all outstanding. Great night.
James Bolam and Rodney Bewes were in Northumberland in October 1973 filming for the second series of Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. An article in the North East England publication ChronicleLive.co.uk, tells the story.
