Re: writing to PDBT
This was a question discussed around the time I joined the list, last spring. I
remember there were varied responses, but this is what has worked for me:
The Boat House
Twickenham TW1 1QZ
BTW -- yes, this location really does exist, and yes it is on a lovely stretch
of the Thames (not far from Kew Gardens, if I remember correctly -- Brit list
members -- please correct!), for you doubters out there! Jake, myself and I'm
sure countless others of y'all can verify it with photos/autographs/other
various & sundry treasured items!
I guess my only question, writing him today, would be: is he spending more
time in New York right now (what with "Tommy")? In any case, I am certain your
note would reach him.
And, yes, my experience has been that he *does* write you back, provided you
ask a reasonably intelligent question (I'll leave that up to you!) and not a
rhetoric one (e.g. "Hey, how 'bout the Who? Do you wish Moonie was still
around?!", etc. etc.). I've never received any glossy 8 x 10s (Thank God,
IMHO!). Just a simple reply, on his stationery, and signed by him.

Has anyone out there tried writing Trousers himself? I have his address,
here, and I'm positive it's his place on the Thames. Does he take time to
respond to your letter, or does he just send out some goofy 8 x 10 with a
signature on it?
