  • Roger’s favourite restaurants

    For those who listened to Life on A Plate, Roger’s food interview, a few months ago.
    In the interview, he revealed his favourite restaurant in in Hastings, called 'La Bella Vista’.
    Here's an article on it and you can see 25 photos of it.

    I may visit there when I go to the UK to see his gigs next summer.

      Here’s another his favourite one I visited several years ago. Completely forgot the name of it but it is a courtyard restaurant at a museum in London. We enjoyed the atmosphere and had a Japanese tea served in a Japanese Nambu Ironware teapot and great smoked sermon for lunch. (Well, the photo-uploading function is working)

            I'm sorry for saying this in this thread since you've been rejecting to receive my DMs on this website.

            The more you call Roger ‘Boo' in public, the closer you may feel you can reach him. I'm afraid it happens only in your fantasy. In the reality, it's exactly the opposite. The more you do so the more people around him (who actually interact with him) will be wary of you.
            I do believe Roger tries not to get involved in fans' fantasies.

            Don't you think you are actually insulting him and his wife in public? His name is Roger and he is not your pet. We've been getting complaints from other fans. A lot of fans around the world consider him their hero and want him to stay in a higher position than you hope.
            We need love, not an obsession with the bizarre nickname.

            I know fantasy sometimes helps with dealing with difficult situations, but there are several groups that accept your fantasy outside this forum (TheShout, for example). Some of them are run by you. Why don't you save it for your own groups and take care of your co-fangirls? Not here.

            You seem to never accept those who misspell Roger's family name, but on the other side, you force us to see your weird nickname for him that we can't accept. There’s a contradiction in your actions.

            Please do not capture this comment and post it in a public group to urge your people to bully me, just like you did to the other member of this forum and me before.
            I hope this doesn't sound too harsh and will make sense to you.

              Part of what I wrote in my earlier post came from my personal Who experience. (Sorry for keeping going off the topic.)

              In 2008, when the first time I got a call from Roger's PA who arranged a private meeting with Roger backstage for me, I was so excited and said "Oh my gosh...!" at least 5 times in a row. You know, English is not my first language, so I had to determine what I should say next quickly but had no idea how I could make requests; Before the show/after the show? Roger at first or Pete? Where should we wait, and what time? Try to say these in a foreign language that you learned at school a long time ago. Not easy. Let alone when you are expecting to see your lifetime idol in person! The PA seemed to be irritated because he couldn't catch me a few times while I was on a bullet train and noticed my confusion and started to worry about me. Then, he asked me if I was really the OK person to meet him. I guess the real reason he called me was he just wanted to confirm beforehand the meeting if I was an OK person who deserves to meet Roger in person because he and the other PA (and Roger) already had my email address and contacted me via email several times.
              Based on my experience, I'd say that creating a good impression on others seems to matter in Whoville.

              Anyway, I somehow managed to pass the test and finally could meet Roger face to face, but failed to meet Pete. (That's OK. Things don't go as planned. I could have a lovely chat with Pete's PA, instead.)
              As some of you might remember, shortly after the meeting, Roger posted his message to me on the forum via the former webmaster, saying "It had a good vibe."

              phew! hahaha, why 'vibe'? because I felt like jelly and totally speechless! LOL
              Luckily, The Who camp is the kind of people who acknowledge my effort for moderating in my second language here and I always appreciate that.​

                The reason I ignored your DMs was a knee jerk reaction to an earlier criticism that hurt my feelings.

                I will express my love anyway, anyhow, anywhere I choose. Those who have known me for nearly 20 years know that I mean no harm. I am not some sick, psycho stalker who invades his personal life. What makes you think I would ever do that, just because I have a cute little nickname? I'm tired of people jumping to that conclusion.

                There are people who are obsessed with celebrities and cross boundaries that should never be crossed. I do not do that. Never did and never will.

                On another thread, [URL=""]I mentioned I was diagnosed with autism.[/URL] And Keith Moon himself had a touch of Asperger's, as Roger himself said. While it doesn't excuse my behaviour, it is an explanation for my intense interests, as people with ASD get fixated on stuff, and don't generally get social cues, and are hyper sensitive.

                Also, I've met Heather at Tanglewood, and she's as lovely inside as she is outside. She knows I adore Roger, and is happy with it.

                This quote from PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES sums it up, especially the last part:

                [URL=filedata/fetch?id=173806&d=1671401712][ATTACH=JSON]{"alt":"Click image for larger version Name:\tyou wanna hurt me.jpg Views:\t4 Size:\t72.8 KB ID:\t173806","data-align":"none","data-attachmentid":"173806","data-size":"custom","height":"305","title":"you wanna hurt me.jpg","width":"271"}[/ATTACH][/URL]


                In August, we already gave you the final warning, telling "If you do not respond to this message by 20th August, we will assume you give consent to everything we warn you: i.e. No more Boo/nose kissing/Whogasm stuff in the official forum." but you never responded until today.

                Let me remind you of the rule created by you for your FB groups.
                • No blocking admins/moderators: You yourselves will be blocked if you block an admin/moderator.
                You blocked me everywhere and reject my DMs on this forum where I do my duty as a moderator. There's a contradiction between your activities here.

                You acutually tried to invade backstage and exposed a photo of the security guy who did his job that managed to stop you in a public group that has no admin to moderate it anymore. What's the difference between it and the stalkers you mentioned? You also exposed the user info of the other forum member and mine for the whole world to see instead of fighting back here.

                Mrs Heather Daltrey has nothing to do with your Boo activities. She knows how his husband's business works and generously allows her husband's fans to express their love in decent ways.
                As you may know, I spent a few hours with Roger this summer and talked about a lot of things, including his die-hard fan who follows him around the world. I won’t say the details, but he didn't seem to be happy about her activities. He treated me as if I were a music journalist and I truly felt what he expects from his true fans. i.e. Sharing true information. Not fantasy. Understanding who he really is.

                We've been getting many complaints about your Who coinages from other forum members and have to delete them if/when you use them. Your friend who actually have known you for over 20 years is not an excuse to use your weired nickname that we can't accept here. This is a cyber world where people judge others by what they type.

                As I mentioned when you disclosed my user info on the FB public group, I respect your fandom and I'm not saying don't ever use the Boo in your life. I just say we consider it unacceptable here on his official forum.

                Re: your quote doesn't express you. In fact, your weird nickname for Roger does hurt other forum members' feelings. It’s not Love and sounds as if he were your pet.​
