A funny rare photo to watch of Neil Tennant

#1 Post by Nickname »

Not many things to say about PSB these days, so I want to share with you this pic from a very young Neil Tennant. Funny photo:

That Twitter account is positively unhealthy. Unhinged, even. But I wouldn't expect anyone else to dig up stuff like that!

Oh, come on, that's a bit of an overreaction, isn't it?

With those kind of Twitter accounts you can understand why Neil & Chris are very wary of fan interaction these days and have virtually stopped having photos taken with fans.

I don't know, it has its humorous moments https://twitter.com/hopelesslover/statu ... 47521?s=20

Oh god, thanks for reminding me to stop visiting this forum.
What a shit-post.
You don't "watch" a photo, you look at a photo.
And just embed the thing next time.
Here is the photo OP thought it was worth making a discussion thread about:

Image

So funny! He looks to have received a gift or is otherwise posing with a bottle of wine in a wholesome private gathering.
Was this picture even released with permission?
This isn't even a Pet Shop Boys photo. Sure it's of NT but I have no interest in invading their personal lives like this.

One thing we can agree on though, a point brought up by the OP is it's a fairly quiet time for PSB.
They're giving us little bits here and there with the It's A Sin artwork auction, the Pop Vinyls, Neil's photo of a rainbow, the BBC performances on Youtube, but there has to be something cooking up behind the scenes.

A little rude, I’d say. Is English “Nickname’s” first language? I don’t believe it is. Pet Shop Boys pride themselves as being a “Global Band” and part of their longevity has been down to them appealing to many across the planet; indeed, it’s something for which I’m most proud of from my lifelong favourite musicians so that kind of remark is not really called for.

I’ve changed my mind, it wasn’t rude, just plain toxic. Reel it in.

Peace out to you, Nickname.
More strobes and BANGING, please!

This Sage character has plenty of previous when it comes to rudeness on the forum. The moderators have been informed on more than one occasion regarding his tone and comments..

"I have no interest in invading their personal lives like this [but here, let me embed the personal photo so it's easier for everyone to see]"

PSB have managed a pretty low profile in the public sphere while being quite famous. And their fans are a good bunch. These photos are nothing.

I didn't want to put a photo of him if I knew if was para of his prive life. It's not obviously a studio photo but I don't know if I should consider this photo like something private. It's difficul to know that, isn't it?. Anyway, it's a not a photo that could make any kind of harm to Neil Tennat. Anyway, I accept the critics on that sense.

Nickname - please don’t worry about some of the comments on this post. The photo of Neil next to the baby I have seen myself a very long time ago in a magazine it was the celebrate something PSB’s related. :) I think the lady and baby could be Eric Watson’s wife and child. Neil was good friends with Eric’s wife. I think her name was something like Krista? (Sp?).

Krysia. Neil used to go out with her. She’s the subject of “Bet she’s not your girlfriend”.
