By now you all know what is going happen. Me and my computer are going to take one of our "gotta know everything about everything" manic trips ... but, but, but there's housework so I'll just do a simple image search and here she is:
I can stop now. Right? Fat chance!!! Was the song based on the statue ... the statue on the song? Okay, I'll just look at the article about her. The sculpter's name is Tommy Steele and the rumor is that he sold her to the city for "half a sixpence". Say what?! THE Tommy Steele, British rocker, star of many musicals? One of those musicals was Half A Sixpence. Who knew? He's a sculptor?
Okay, it will only take a moment to sneak over to You Tube for "Flash, Bang, Wallop!"
Well I'll just leave you all here. There is still that matter about the objects inside the statue and all the other sites on the "Beatles Walking Tour" and, and, and ... If you don't hear from me again soon, send a rescue party.
