Tiger was as mad as a hatter. When Teddy joined the College Boys Pup Fullerton left and formed a band with Tiger. I went to scholl with Pup and met him again years later after he had been over playing in England with Alexis Kroner

Hi headtheball,

LSD!  I thought maybe some weed.  OH I was young & innocent then.

Poor dog, maybe he dressed it in one, & gave it a cigar.

As you say, LSD powerful stuff.

Thanks got another good laugh.

No he just used to see things. Tiger was  a very talented guitarist and others less talented than he got a lot further than he did He was very badly served in lots of ways by his managers.

Burnsy thanks for the link. Is that Teddy singing??
His dad used to be our milkman up in Belvoir, they lived in Newtownbreda. I used to get myself all 'dolled up' in case Teddy came on a Friday night to get the milk money - and he did fairly often, he worked quite a bit with his dad on the milk round.
Teddy had an alsation dog (just can't remember its name) - he used to drive into the forest just opposite our house and let the dog out, then drive round with the dog running beside the car and at the other end let the dog hop in again  :)

I knew Tiger when he was a young man ... he was very talented then, but weird from when he was a boy!
He had a plastic guitar back in the 50s and we were his backing skiffle group, with the washboard and tea chest bass ... in his coalshed in the dark! He played Lonnie Donegan and Johnny Duncan all the time then.

He hardly ever went to school and would be seen trailing down the street long after everyone else.
He was very creative, making up stories all the time, carving guns and rifles out of scrap wood ...

He was very innocent and easily led ... I don't think that part of him changed much ...

That's a super video from Burnsy, but it's not the Belfast Teddie & the Tigers, no cine was taken of them! See pics etc at www.irish-showbands.com look up Teddie Palmer and the Rumble Band; also  at www.irishshowbands.net (the beat group section)

Tiger is still going strong, singing round Dublin where he moved in around 1971, after Eire Apparent (managed by Jimmy Hendix manager) he joined the Freshmen who were based in Dublin by then....a lot of the musos got out of Belfast then!

No video of Teddie & the Tigers, but you can see The Exiles at CIYMS the year before that (1966) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvF1wtDZNTs
