Dunno about Syd, but the last time I saw Eddie on telly was that Jon Culshaw ITV series where he 'impersonated' Claire Short!

The same series saw Bernard Manning do John Prescott!

20 years at the top and not one single DVD release.

There is little to any footage existing on the net apart from the od xmas episode or Bob Holness joining them to play Status Quo its zero.

Here's the truth: Syd and Eddie are very different people:

Eddie is into golf and supporting Manchester City.

Syd is into model making and music. He takes an interest in Manchester City, but he's a 'supporter' whereas Eddie is a 'fan'.

Syd was in some ways scared of Eddie when they worked together, and they never socialised much. But that's not to say there is a problem between them as such. Eddie had a heart transplant a decade or so ago and Syd came to see him.

There's no 'problem' between them as such, but they're just very different, and always were.

Pretty much as I suspected - and it's like anything else. How many of us would want to socialise with people we spend working with? Many do, but equally many don't and the kind of work they did was longer and more intense than two guys working in an office for example.

Oh, and most of the speculation on this thread comes from interviews the boys themselves gave on TV suggesting an animosity.

I just wonder why, if the claims of animosity were exaggerated by the pair in interviews, what was the aim? I could see perhaps there could have been a bit of money in it down the line if they'd had some sort of Martin & Lewis style emotional reunion, but so far as I can see there's never been any intention and Eddie in particular wants to take it easy these days. They both already put autobiographies out several years ago...I'm just trying to figure out what the motivation would have been?

Certainly Eddie's quote a few years ago about them not having spoken in years garnered quite a bit of publicity, but there was seemingly never any attempt to capitalise on it.

Like a lot of things, it was probably all in the edit.

If both were interviewed for an hour and both were critical of each of for 2 minutes of that time, which 2 minutes will producers focus on?

I suspect it was just for the publicity - it might have lead to a press interview, radio interview, who knows.
