Hhhmm, interesting looking at that photo. That guitar in those photo looks very much like Anto's Silhouette Special (his chief axe for the BH tour). Have seen Jim with lots of different guitars over the year but not one of those. Either Anto's been generous or Jim has engaged in a little pilferage !!
It is pleasing to see that Sth African authorities have kept public order and decorum intact with the apprehension of some infamous Irish troublemakers. The third offender remained in custody due to his family declining to post bail !!
In light of that comment, one COULD question the validity of yr title ??
Moving right along .... found these snaps which could fall under the heading "Educating the Newbie !!"
Anto & Keith: "Stick with us Kieren lad and we'll teach ya the secrets of life on tour !!" Kieren (thinking): "Yup, thanks guys, not sure I'LL be wanting records for drunk and disorderly on 5 continents !!"
Kieren: "Jeez fellas, how DID we get out of that one ??" Keith: "Easy, the girls always bail us out." Kieren: "But what about Jim ??" Anto: "They draw the line there. Thats left for Hughesy !!"
The Corrs new (and less photogenic drummer) adopts the fortification method in repelling the intrusive cameramen.
The men in the Corrs line-up REALLY are a disreputable lot !!
Jim and Anto thinking: "Seems like she'll sign anything so perhaps she'll sign for our bar tabs !!"
Perhaps we have overlooked some other Corr males; those intrepid male adventurers who have bravely undertaken the perils of Holy Matrimony with our three fair Irish roses.
Does the rueful expression on the face of the newly-wed Mr Woods indicate: (a) he's just remembered that matrimony to the fair Caroline may also invoke the "for poorer" parts of the wedding vows. (b) he'd failed to take Gav's legal advice about a pre-nuptial agreement (c) he's just figured that while Cazz is certainly drop-dead gorgeous she's also one strong fit little drummer and thus quite capable of beating him severely !!
The Corr sisters became intl style and beauty icons. Regrettably the (less photogenic) male components of the ensemble DID tend to let down the side ... both in matters sartorial and off-stage conduct
Defendant A: James Steven Ignatius Corr. The disshevelled state of his wardrobe and hair present a strong prima-facae case that the defendant has had a very long night (most likely little interrupted by sleep) with a suspicion of a liquid lunch. This is the best possible explanation for the feather boa ..... it may work for baby sister but you really must have been pissed !! Defendant response: (nothing we can repeat here)
Defendant B: Keith Arnold Jacques Duffy. Conclusive photographic evidence that this defendant has engaged in identical conduct to Defendant A. The (non) combination of pinstripe suit trousers with floral shirt indicates he has not even returned to his room to change. Defendant response: "Please leave me alone .... I'm not feeling very well. And please, please keep Caroline away from me ..... at least until I start feeling better !!"
Defendant C: Anthony Drennan.Whilst the evidence suggests that this defendant may not have engaged in the overindulgence of the co-accused, there is no conceivable defence for buying one's shirts from the same supplier ! Defendant response: Declined to respond (he never does seem to say anything !!)
