The other night Mr D and I bumped into FabHat and Mr FabHat and, as we chatted, talk came around to the subject of David Hasselhoff (as it does, obviously). Mr D and I then waxed lyrical about that fateful night night in 1989 when the Berlin Wall fell and to celebrate there was a David Hasselhoff concert. This was the point at which the FabHats looked at us strangely and inched away!

Well, today there is a story about David's part in the end of the cold war - <a href=""></a>; and I wondered what other surreal memories other had about world events.

The Queen Mother's party, which involved a procession on Horse Guards' Parade, a few years ago. It looked like the biggest, crappest village fete I've ever seen, and involved a march by groups of people who were supposed to represent various, important stages in the last 100 years of British history. Some of them were dressed as aeroplanes(!) while Teddy Boys and Punk Rockers and the like, were also represented. It was one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen on tv, and I wish I had it on video.

Actually, David Hasslehoff is currently ruining "Chicago" somewhere in the West End. That must be a nomination for one of the more bizarre world events, surely..........?

For true appreciation of the man's talent, read the reviews of his records here. You won't be disappointed, I'm sure!

Andrew -
My fav quote from the "rave reviews" -

My God, can those Germans keep a secret! First the Kelly Family and now Nat King Hasselhoff
