  1. I read somewhere that Jimmy's black beauty was returned to him. Has this been confirmed? Great to see these old photos.
  2. His passing is a surprise. He certainly looked fit and working his magic. He was producing a new HBO show I'm taken with, The Brink, probably one of many projects. George Clooney said in a statement "......... And to those who didn’t know him we send our deepest sympathy. You would have loved him.” I'm sure that about sums it up. Really sad, but a life well lived. RIP
  3. Have I died and gone to heaven? Thanks for posting Funky and Patrycja thanks for the pics (looks like Jack's tour photographers work). Jack and Robert are a natural paring of course. Don't they both live in Nashville, well Robert part-time. Freaking cool that was!
  4. I don't know enough about restrictions for Grade I or II listed buildings but if it is typical of most heritage type properties, wouldn't the extensive work planned for William's home be under restrictions and therefore scrutiny? Jimmy has spent a good deal of money for expert advice and reports. You must have deep pockets for this fight!
  5. How can you make such severe changes to a leased property without the owners application? I'm aware of leasehold improvements but this seems extreme. The additional plans look more like a hotel than a private residence. Why doesn't Williams look to a neighbourhood that can accommodate such square footage and save himself a headache. Surely Chelsea council will veto such drastic changes to a Grade II building? Michael Winner seems like he was a really kind person. Words os wisdom there, spend more time with your parents. Thank goodness mine liked LZ...... and taught us to play nicely with the neighbours!
  6. It has been years since I last seen Tower House and I don't recall the garage, but could it once have been a carriage house or stable? It doesn't show on the plans so probably an addition. Smart car? Jimmy doesn't drive but yes an Aston or at least a Jag, I mean, to fit it. Nothing wrong with a Bentley! lol But if Jimmy is "green", it wouldn't hurt my feelings either.
  7. Grade 1 and II listed properties are high maintenance and expensive to maintain. I don't know if I'd be willing to take on a pair. Will there be friendly chats over the garden fence? Not that I can add anything to this particular Jimmy story, but I recently learned that I had a relative who lived at Tower House in the 1940's. I have since wondered if Jimmy would let me in and have a look around.
  8. Besides being a rich folk problem, the houses in that area are of a type. If you buy in that neighbourhood, you should have the decency to keep those magnificent old mansions as the architect intended - everyone else has. Hope JP wins at council.
  9. I think it has been debated here. It is an August entry but the photo wasn't taken in August. I personally think it's around 1977.
  10. Book stamping? Like an autograph?? I'm really enjoying Jimmy's book.
  11. John Paul Jones is there in Rockestra as well.
