Only gold with the Muppets


Shirley Bassey having a laugh as a guest of the Muppets.

Mr Goldfinger and his mini henchmen steal all the go-o-o-ld while Shirley sings.

Guess who gets the blame…

The Dame and the Lord


There’s speculation about DSB attending The Rt. Hon. The Lord Heseltine’s 75th birthday party in March 2008. His birthday is 21st March.

Apparently she will be singing. It’s mentioned in Mike Dixon’s diary, and has been in the press (as previously reported here).

I understand it’s by invitation, so there’s not much chance of me going 😦

But here’s another “rumour”… from a reliable source:-

On Tuesday 23rd October, DSB was a guest at a private corporate event.

The Haymarket Group celebrated its 50th birthday with a big party.

Dame Shirley was the surprise guest at their 50th dinner!  Sadly, no pictures but some might emerge.

Tuesday was described as ‘a wonderful evening’.


The Chairman of Haymarket happens to be Lord Heseltine who was born in Swansea, Wales. He’s clearly a fan too!
