The Tip Post
Not if you live a thousand years are you likely to have a life story as wild. Alan Aldridge is the cold-water-flat kid who grew up to be design guru to the Beatles and not only beat out John Lennon for a girl’s affection one evening at the height of Beatlemania, but slow-danced with Princess Margaret, the Queen of England’s sis, in the palace she shared with her husband. And that’s just the start of it. In fact, there were so many jaw-dropping, hilarious stories at the Tip last night it became clear Alan will have to come back for an encore — he himself said we didn’t even make it out of the Sixties. So stay tuned. And if you can’t wait, check out his new illustrated memoir, The Man with Kaleidoscope Eyes, which he delightfully autographed to dozens of Tip guests. Many thanks to The Man for an incomparable performance and a fitting finish to year one of D/C’s Toast of the Tip.
