    Re: Leif Garrett

    Bookmarked this thread some time ago and just clicked on it again...

    I always thought that Leif Garrett was a bit like a Justin Bieber of the late 1970s - I have to admit that I saw a circa 2011 interview from Garrett on YouTube, a lot older of course, and it is depressing how he looks in the last few years compared to back in 1978-1979 when he appeared in the "I Was Made for Dancing" video. I was wondering whether Olivia Newton-John (or Sandy anyway) knew that he was wearing her tight black trousers? I suppose that one recent comparison to Garrett was the Lithuanian Eurovision star Donny Montell who took part in the contest in around 2015-2016. In a nutshell, why cannot we have popstars like him these days?

    By the way, I thought that I would take the opportunity to say that I am fine and that I am just taking a break from the forum for a while so that one can focus on the changes that this horrible coronavirus thing will bring to life in general at the moment. I hope to "pop my head around the door" now and then and post a few more, and later on the year when things should get better, I might come back on a regular basis later on in the year and post a bit more often. But at the moment, I am putting my priorities in order and seeing into what is important to myself at this moment in time. I hope you all understand.

    You're welcome That show was aired way back in '79, pre-Denis Pennis, Mrs Merton or Ali G. He was the forerunner to them all. I heard the character wasn't too far removed from the person, the sweating and the nerves were for real and after a nervous breakdown he's now a spokesperson for mental health issues.

    Poor Leif's in the news again

    Thanks so much for uploading! It was great to watch the young Leif. I'm not very familiar with Norman Gunston. Looks like he's an actor doing an interview in character, a bit like the Mrs Merton idea. Or is he really like that?!

    Here you go Marine Boy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHV5qQiUCPk Terrible quality but the best I could do given that I don't know how to transfer video onto the computer. From The Norman Gunston Christmas Show 1979.

    lol. Although to be fair, I've seen more recent pics of him that don't look a bit like that second one. I seem to recall it was taken when he was arrested some years ago. I think it was a particularly bad day

    That would be good. Love to see it.
