I've decided I'm going to try and update the Wikipedia entry for Ruby Flipper. I've corrected Floyd's surname to Pearce on it (which is his name) as they had previously wrongly given him the surname Pearson. They have also got Cherry's final performance date completely wrong by saying it was in June to Dorothy Moore's 'Misty Blue'. So I want to correct that too. Also can someone give me the date of Floyd's performance with Legs and Co for 'I feel Love', as I'm going to put the full list of Floyd's L + C performances and Wikipedia lists only three. (I've got him down for at least nine!) and the only date I am missing is the 'I feel Love' one. Thanks.
I think that was the 11/8/77 one Carl (from memory) but you should probably wait for confirmation from someone more reliable like Jez, Suefan, YMG, Ryan, MishMash, Hadeel, Kace, Amy, Remote, HotLegs or LNV. (apologies if I missed soomeone out but this is from memory too)
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
Hey Carl, just checking, have you also listed those two Floyd routines from that god damn awful film `The Stud`. I must admit Floyd was a pretty cool dude on the dance floor in `Native New Yorker`, i really loved his style in that, he was almost as good as the Ryanmeister.
80s chick, ok your right they are nothing to do with TOTPs, but Legs & Co danced to two songs in the Stud film, both which featured Floyd. The songs were `Native New Yorker` and` Lets go disco`. Yes i also know they danced to `Lets go disco` in the TOTPs studio . Please feel free to but in when you want by the way.
Thanks for the info Patti4PM and Suefan. I've now added all Floyd's routines with L and Co to the Ruby Flipper page on Wikipedia and corrected a couple of other inaccuracies. This is the problem with Wikipedia. Someone on there once had information about the oldest man mentioned in the Bible being 'Bruce Forsyth'(!!)
I make it that Floyd appeared for a grand total of nine different routines with Legs and Co on TOTP.
Actually Floyd DID dance with Legs and Co in the TOTP studio for 'Let's Go Disco' on 25 of May 78 (The same edition he dances with them for 'You're The One that I Want'). If you look, you can see Legs and Co with Floyd in the TOTP crowd in front of the stage where the Real Thing are singing.
Thanks for the info about 'The Stud'. I had forgotten that. I can add it to the what they did next section.
Ryan, perhaps at a push, you could give Gavin a run for his money on the dance floor, but Floyd, I don't think so.
I mean the 25th May 78 edition, where our Floyd does the 'You're the One that I Want' routine with the girls. In that same show, the group the Real Thing are on stage in the studio performing 'Let's Go Disco', and mixed in with the audience in front of the stage are Legs and Co and Floyd dancing. Hope someone else verifies this.
