If that's Toyah Wilcoth can you nip round and get me the autograph of her husband, Robert Fripp - the guitarist with King Crimson.

Lee Carsley lives a couple of streets away from me and Craig Gardener lives on the next road. Gary Newbon (remember him) lives 10 mins or so away, think that's about it.

He's barking.

They used to live in Dorset.

I see Toyah quite often at Coseley train station, or waking near to it.

I also see John Bonham daughter Zoe, John's mum and dad are buried in a grave yard 30m away from my home.

Is it Stella McCartney? I know she looks something like that plus your clue helped.

When Toyah dies, she wants her body to be left on the Malvern Hills for birds to peck at. I don't know why I know that.

Is she a Zoroastrian? That's what Zoroastrians do.

Here he is...

Toyah Wilcox is evil. The sooner someone puts her out of her misery the better. 'Vampires of Rock'?!! At the Alex?!! She was even given the dignity of justifying it on BBC Breakfast. Shudder. Cringe. Brum. She must be stopped.

This lady does so much for charity, you wouldn't believe, & she is really down to earth & a genuine good egg! Unlike some 'up themselves' people from her 'industry' I wouldn't want to mention!

I've always liked Toyah. My mother however seems to hold some vendetta against her.

Only one i can think of that lives round by me is the ginger news presenter from the ITV local news - Joanne Malin

Here's a list.

Graham Taylor
Jean Makoun
Gabriel Abonglawonglawhore
Marc Albrighton (unconfirmed)
Paul Merson (TWAT)
Andy Gray (TWAT)
Trevor Eve

a few others which haven't come to mind yet, but these guys as well:

http://www.birminghammail.net/news/b...7319-26722734/

If anyone wants Merson's address, pay me £50 and I'll tell you where he takes his mistresses, and his drugs.

It's actually an apartment in Streetly I believe.
