|Does anyone know who JN's management is?|
|Does anyone think Jimmy will release another album and have another tour in the near future?|
|Hi Carolyn, its Carolyn :-) YES, I couldn't agree with you more,
Tadpoles would have to be one of the best cd's i have listened to,and so is Big River.. THEY ARE FANTASTIC.. just listening to the history involved in the lyric is very nostalgic. I actually feel i learn about other countries when i listen to good lyric..that is WHY i am surprised Jimmy would even want to sing other peoples songs,, as he is such a talented writer himself.. Yes, i also agree that 10 great songs is JUST THAT............. 10 great songs,,, but sung by the originals not for Jimmy to sing!!.. I feel his voice can not cope with the various chord and range/pitch levels.I can even say, to ME, his Voice often came across as being rather FLAT.. and that comes across really plainly, when listening to the cd.. I have played it about 6 times and SORRY, doesn't do a thing for me.. Perhaps, in the future, Jimmy will think twice about releasing a cover cd.SO JIMMY KEEP WRITING YOUR GREAT STUFF..OK. LOL Carolyn..
| Didn't like the 10 Songs album? I think Jimmy's arrangements of "House
of the Rising Sun", "Something", and "Walking on the Moon" are just
They may be covers but they lose nothing in originality.
How about some more questionnaire responses you lot....
| Hi Carolyn (Australia) I had to look twice when I saw my name posted!
thought I was going mad, there's not that many of us about!! I have to
agree with you on your post. 10 Great Songs is probably my least
favourite, although I could listen to"Something" every day, Jim can
write such wonderful lyrics (Tadpoles in a jar being my favourite,it
brings back so many memories,)that it seems a waste of his talents to
cover others songs. Here's hoping for a new album soon.
|I am a huge fan of Jimmy Nail,I have all of spender,croc. shoes 1 -&- 2 and all of the Auf Pet 1-&-2,AND VARIOUS movies,and every one of his cd's.all of which ihave watched and listened to,year after year, but i have to tell you I waited 6-7 months for his last cd, to arrive in my hot eager little hands,[some things take ages to get to australia]. I couldn't wait to get it home and put it on.. God, what a disappointment, i mean all of Jimmy's previous cd's have been of such high quality, production wise, and this cd, was just crap.. sorry Jimmy, but i think you better get back and start to show an interest in what you do best,make great music. OF YOUR OWN, NOT SOMEONE ELSES OLD HITS.. you should have kept 10great songs etc. for your bathroom... not on the record shelves.. but i still love ya!! sorry to be so critical, but felt that i should air my views.. best wishes to Alan and Sharon,, great job on the site by the way.. talk soon.. lol carolyn.. /australia..|

|The most recent auf wedershien pet was every bit as good as the first two.|
| I'm just jealous!!!
It's p******* down in Newcastle Just for a change!)Hope you two are having a great time, send us all the news when you ger back.
| We are currently eating and drinking loads with some Canadian Jimmy
Nail fans in Ontario! They would like Jimmy to know that it is not cold over here and he is
welcome to stop by any time....

|Its to quiet|
I don't know him personally. I have also just seen your entry for the 27th June. its not that i hate him i was a huge fan, none bigger in fact, until i met him and found out he is not the person i thought he would be. i said "Hi" to him while he was walking near the venue in Southport 2001 and he was quite aggresive to me and that is why i'm like this about him now. as i have said on previous entries manners cost nothing!!!
|It's been a long time since I've watched the original series, but watched Sunday's episode and remembered it all.Brillient!!|
|Do you know him personally helen? Anyone watch the first episode of Auf Pet on UK gold last sunday? Oz was so funny :)|
|his real name is what you say. he told us crowd at a concert that he got the name "nail" after standing on one at work, and it went through his foot. So the lads gave him the name of "nail". how true it is i don't know, he could have said that just for the hell of it knowing what he is like.|
|A good tribute to the man. Was his real name Jimmy Bradford? Any chance of Crocodile Shoes III ?|
|Already got the entire Auf Wiedersehen Pet on video, but i'm tempted to tape it all again, thanx to UK Gold re-running them all!! Every now and again, i watch them all, so they're looking a bit worn now!!|
|They're doing re-runs of Auf Pet on UK Gold on sunday at 9pm in case nobody knew :)|
| Throughly enjoyed the new series of Auf Pet, I didn't think they would
be able to do the original series justice but it was great - well done
to the lads especially Jimmy.
Hope to see Jimmy out again on tour before to long, didn't get chance
to go to any of his last gigs.
|helen, why do you come on here if you hate Jimmy so much?|
|you've all gone quiet again, not many signing the book. He has earned a few bob and pi**ed off again. Not that i care|
|Uk Gold are to repeat series 1 of Auf weidersehen Pet on Sunday 30th June at 9.00pm. Video's at the ready!|
|Hey, I would like to make a suggestion about the site? I don't know alot about Jimmy, could you possibly put more trivia about him on the site? About his past, family etc.? Great site :)|
|hi, I'm 15 and recently became a jimmy nail fan, so I don't know much about him, but I think he is so gorgeous, especially as Oz from Auf Widersehen pet. I love your site sharon!|
|James||The Jimmy Nail Experience||15/Jun/2002:21:21:12|
|Nice site! Keep up the good work!|
| Hi Joey C
i scrolled down to read your other entry. i remember reading it when you did it, and thought, that's a good one, even showed my husband. Sorry for takin' it so personaly.
| Sorry Helen didn't mean my comment personaly. If you scroll down
to my previous entries you'll see that I strongly agree with you.
I was just making a final postive point. You can see what I would do to
him, if he was as rude to me as he was to you, just scroll down a bit.
| well Joey C
sorry if you think it is all cr*p but it does hurt when someone you think is great, turns out nasty to you for no reason. I have met other stars and have been treated great by them. Even met Robert Carlise (Full Monty)in our local Safeway he shook my hand, not me his. I agree Jimmy is a good all rounder, but manners cost nothing, at the end of the day WE pay him his wages either through ticket sales or TV licience. How would you take it if a shop assistant was rude to you??? WE also pay their wages don't WE??? So what is the difference NONE.
|Besides all this CR*P jimmy is a hugely believable entertaining actor. And that's all that bothers me when I sit down @ 9:00 on a Sunday night.|
| Neil M
as i have said on earlier signings in this guestbook. Jimmy Nail is NASTY. i have met him and got verbal abuse from him he was on HIS own, before a concert NOT with his family were he might want to be alone with them. I had loved him for years not anymore though!!!! So if you Neil M have not met him you can not comment on him!!!!!!
| Professional entertainers perform an act to try to please, amuse, or at
the very least divert people. Consequently, they are subject to public
criticism of their professional performance and justifiably so. We
should all expect a "job evaluation" of some sort.
We read about their antics and accomplishments (true or false) we invite them into our homes via TV or listen to them through our sound systems and car stereos, or we attend live performances; as a result, their persona is familiar to us. Subsequently, a relationship with certain perceived responsibilities can develop with said persona because they share moments in our lives that invoke memories of one kind or another and we would like to share these with them in return.
However, the reverse is not necessarily the case. Obviously, for them, personal feelings cannot possibly go much beyond the gratification that they have provided a returning audience with a good day's work and that they have, to paraphrase our hosts, g
|Don't get me wrong, I have all of Jimmy's albums and think he is great as an artist but I used to go to school with him and you wouldn't be quite so pleasant about him if you knew what he was really like|
Good for you girl!! Go for it, any questions you like, from the entire Auf Pet series!! Feel free to e-mail it to me! Or put it on here, and i'll answer the questions where everyone can see them.
|JUST READ YOUR EDITORIAL AGREE WITH YOU 100%. I HAVE FRIENDS WHO HAVE HAD THE GREAT PLEASURE TO MEET HIM. THEY SAID JIMMY WAS FANTASTIC COULD NOT MEET A NICER PERSON HE WAS GREAT.|
If you are going to the trouble of writing an Auf Pet quiz would you like us to publish it on the site? (all credit to you of course). If so please e-mail it a soon as you've done it
|Your on Tracey!|
|Someone set a quiz of questions, on Auf Pet!! I'd win, hands down!!|
|sharon your site is brilliant i was wondering if you knew whether or not jimmy has seen it . i thought i would tell you about the concert i went to in birmingham about 3 years ago my friend and i sat next to pat roach we got talking to him as you do and he said he would get us passes to see jimmy after the show . to say that i nearly died was a under statement. when at the end of the show my friend and i walked to the front of the stage pat roach was no where to be seen. surprise surprise . i was so upset (i am 34 years old ). MY HUSBAND THOUGHT I WAS A NUTTER if only .......|
| Neil M your a PRAT ...
I also think Jimmy is a great actor (though his music stinks !, Fact) No matter what your chosen profession, you should still be pleasant with people. He's just a big bully. Im 5ft 10", very stocky -&- a skin head haircut, if I ever see jimmy , I will say hello (his acting has given me great joy !), but if he is rude to me, I'll knock the CR*P out of him (as I would anybody else).
These sissy meadia bullies like him -&- that puff Russel Crowe need bringing into the real world.
Just be nice, it takes more courage than being nasty.
|i have been in love with jimmy nail since i first saw him some 17yrs ago, auf pet was and is fantastic, i just think he is gorgeous. most of my mates and family think im mad but there is something about him that gets me going, accent, looks, height, or the way he wears his underpants im unsure, but by god he does it for me.. keep appearing on my screen jimmy as im not sure i will ever get to meet you in person, (damn). but hey heres hopin...sharon i love your site to.|
| I GET SO MAD WHEN PEOPLE SAY JIMMY THIS JIMMY THAT. IF YOU LIKE WHAT HE
DOSE IN MUSIC AND TV WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM. WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE COMING
UP TO YOU IN THE STREET SAYING "I LOVE YOU JIMMY" I THINK NOT.
YOU GET GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY WHEN YOU SEE HIM IN CONCERT AND ON EVERY
JUST LEAVE THE POOR CHAP ALONE TO HAVE A PRIVATE LIFE. WHAT HE GETS UPTO WHEN MAKING TV PROGRAMES AND MUSIC IS NO CONCERN OF OURS.
P.S KEEP THE GOOD STUFF COMING JIMMY.THE REST OF US HAVE MORE SENCE.
| I've heard from many many people in the TV business -&- outside that
Jimmy Nail is an arrogant egotistical yob. This is a dam shame as his
TV persona's are superb -&- very very likeable. He's obviously a very
very good actor.
Dont't forget Jimmy Karma always catched up ... try a be nice to people.
|Been waiting for this current series for yonks!!!! Have all the past episodes on video, and often watch 'em all.....sad? I dont think so...ha ha ha. Love every episode ever made, but if i had to choose a favourite series, it would be the Barry's house/Thornley Manor era!! Pure class!! Thanks a lot Jimmy, for years of entertainment, long may it continue! Pass this on to 'Neville', 'Bomber', 'Moxey', 'Dennis', and 'Barry'!!|
|hi everyone i just cant believe what people are saying about jimmy being rude and abusive. just shows you how wrong you can be.i have followed him for about ten years even got my husbnd hooked on him .|
| Hi folks - great site, and great to see jimmy on the box again. I
should declare my intentions here: I was hoping that some generous soul
out there would make me up a cssette or burn me a cd. I know, cheeky
aren't I?! What I'm looking for is a compilation of the Paddy McAloon
songs performed by Mr Nail: Blue Roses, Troubled Man, Cowboy Dreams,
Dragons and Love Will Find Someone For You. If you don't think I'm
asking for too much, drop me a line at my e-mail address or phone me on
(01782) 333949. Yours cheekily, Jim W.
|I have watched and admired you Jimmy for many years .Would love to meet you one day . I will have to make do with my Geordie Husband until then..Lots of love to you xx|
|Hi ive been a big fan of jimmy's work for the last 17 years,my favourite is SPENDER.I still watch it regulary and its like a fine wine,it gets better every year it gets older-&-and it still doesn't look dated.I always hoped they would make a forth series of SPENDER but with the tragic passing away of sammy johnson(R.I.P)that dream is now gone.The new AUF PET is fantastic its been a long time coming,but it's been worth the wait.Does anyone have the third series of spender on video,as mine got damaged and im desperate to get another copy.If you could help i would be so gratefull,any way tara for now pet!|
| When they were fiming SPENDER the house they used was in Holly Avenue
Gosforth NC/LE. The owner, a friend and collegue at work would not say
just how much he was paid for the use of his house but it was
|i think your'e all MAD!!!!!!!!!!|
|Been Big Jimmy fan for many years now, Great to see Auf Widersehn pet, Are they the same Undies he had in the First Series in the Hut, They were looking a little loose and he seemed rather well !!!!!, You know!. Look forward to Episode 2 , I felt sorry for Dennis, i wanted to give him a hug bless. Paul ? who was Butch Dingle in Emmerdale did well with the Geordie accent i was impressed. When are we going to see you on Tour again Jimmy, I'm off to see Kylie in Three weeks at Newcastle. Keep up the good work and Hello Sharon -&- Alan.|
|I have now seen Jimmy three times, once at the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow,and twice at Edinburgh Playhouse, the last tour being 10 great songs and an Okay voice, he was simply fabulous, Does any one know if he has tour dates planned for 2002,? If so, I would love to know|
|Since the very first Auf Weidersehen, Pet I've been hooked ! Thanks to Jimmy I've discovered a brilliant band called 'Celtus' - you might remember they were the support act for Jimmy's 1999 tour. Love them, love Jimmy. Definately need another tour ... ages since Hackney Empire and the 10 great songs tour ... Great to find this site today too !|
|Great to see Jimmy last night in Auf Wiedersehen Pet he never changes always stays as sexy as ever :-) need a tour now getting withdrawal symptoms not seen him in concert for a year.|
|But Gorgeous anyway!!!!|
|seen as how you don't get many people signing the guest book i thought i would just say its about time you put a bit of weight on mr. nail. you have been skinny for ages now|
|hi Jimmy,, boy have you been quiet.. what have you been up to?? How is Auf Pet. coming along.. I look forward to seeing the new show in Australia.. , hopefully. hope you and your family are well. When can we expect a new CD? I have just about worn out all of mine..|
|come on jimmy whats going on. I have heard quite a few reports lately of you being rude and surly towards people who have been fans of yours for quite a long time. Don't forget its these people who watched your programmes, bought your records and paid to see you in concert. .......don't they just deserve a moment of your time for a quick hello or autograph. Of course we understand that you are a private person and like your personal space when out with your family which we can understand, but there is no excuse for verbal abuse towards anybody. I have been a fan for many years, seen you many times in concert but have never met you. I hope that if eventually I do I find you are the likeable person I've thought you to be all these years and nothing like the person I've been reading about.|
|GOOD LUCK TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE MET HIM AND GOT A GREAT RESPONSE. I MET HIM WALKING ALONG THE PROM IN SOUTHPORT JUST BEFORE THE CONCERT AND GOT NOTHING BUT VERBAL ABUSE FROM HIM. I HAD LOVED HIM FOR YEARS EVEN CARRIED A PICTURE OF HIM IN MY PURSE. WE HAVE BEEN TO SEE HIM ABOUT 4 OR 5 TIMES. I WOULD NOT EVEN GO TO MY FRONT DOOR TO SEE HIM NOW, IF HE HAPPENED TO BE WALKING BY.|
| This is our lucky day!! You were born! Thanks forever for the gift of
your voice and talent. Congratulations on making a difference in this
world. Happy Birthday, Jimmy. Love to you and yours.
|Happy Birthday Jimmy!|
Great pictures Sharon, What a night it was, I was at the 8pm show and thought the whole show was an extravaganza of
Northern talent and
creativity. It would be nice to think it could be an annual event?

I think Jimmy is fab, i've been to see him twice and wish he'd do another tour soon. He has got to be the sexiest man on the planet and his wife is a lucky lady. Being 23 i didn't see Pet the first time round, but i adore it. Also the film Still Crazy was fantastic!!

|Sunderland, England||On November 15th 1999 and April 21st 2001 i went to see Jimy perform at the Sunderland Empire Theatre and he was brilliant. The first time i saw him he performed a stories and songs night and sang some of his tracks from the album (new at the time) Tadpoles In A Jar. 18 months later again he was brilliant and performed from his album Ten Great Songs And An OK Voice. He also did sing some of his all time favourites such as Big River, Crocodile Shoes and Cowboy Dreams.||November 9th 2002|
