EXCLUSIVE: Today I anonymously received (supposedly) leaked BBC archive footage showing that there was, for at least one episode, a ‘Fourth Goodie’.
2007 Bill Oddie ‘Play It Again’ – Getting a lesson from Certified Guitar Player #2, (inside joke with #1 Chet Atkins. #3 in their club is Aussie Tommy Emanuel) … Mark Knopfler.
Helton Moraes 3 years ago [Youtube comment I agree with]Master’s teaching, but grasshopper’s [Oddie] too busy listening to himself…
At the end of the three minute clip, Bill Oddie walks away seemly unimpressed that MK … “never had a lesson”. (plenty of booze and bedroom practise time, though.)
‘The Goodies’ season 5, episode 10 “Cunning Stunts” Bill Oddie got the SACK!
Legend has it (based on Bill’s 2007 saltiness) his Goodies replacement was, Mark Knopfler.
(I’m only 8min 46 seconds into the ep, so not able to comment further until tomorrow when I sober up)
