"This week I met Robert Smith and Steven Severin on the street where I live in Edinburgh! I couldn't believe it, so I got this record from my flat and got it signed. Strange and amazing but true!"

  2. I know. It's just a photo. A random sidewalk bumping-into. But who isn't fantasizing about another Glove album right now? Glad to see Stephen S. out and about.

  4. I'm really annoyed, someone took my picture from a closed group and now it is absolutely everywhere!

    1. My permission wasn't asked for but its my own fault I suppose, I'm so naïve. It's quite embarrassing actually.

    3. Hi Jamie,

      So sorry to have helped to spread it around. I wondered why I could not find a link to the original source of the photo. When Autumn posted it with that qoute and a link to your Facebook, I mistakenly assumed you sent it to her and had permission to post it.

      If you'd like me to remove it, I will.

      Have to admit I hope you change your mind and will share the rest of the story with everyone, though I certainly understand if you'd rather keep it private.

    5. It's okay, lots of places have it now. Its my own fault, I should have known better than to share it in a group. I thought it would be safe, buried away in a comments section. I originally only wanted to share a photo of the signed record, where the quote really belongs to. I didn't give permission to anyone to share it but never mind, I understand that its exciting to see Smith and Severin together.

    6. Totally understandable. A shame that whomever first passed it around didn't get your permission. I've seen people steal photos like this and pass them around and claim they are the ones in the photo. Insane!

      But, yes, so great to see those 2 together again! And even better to see Steven out and about. Reports last year about his health seemed pretty dire.

      So even though it wasn't your intention to share this with the world, I have to thank you for it.

      Not sure if you're interested in answering any questions about it, but just curious if they actually just waited there on the street while you ran home to get the record for them to sign?

    1. My wife said the same thing! I am calm now. I'm glad people are enjoying the picture, I'm just annoyed with the person who took it and spread it everywhere without permission. Wouldn't that annoy you? Anyway, I'll try to relax and forget about it now!

  6. Steven looks cold. Robert looks ready to tour.

  8. @jj606...what a priviledge to meet the two of them. Perhaps you don't wish to say.and thatsbfine if you don't....but was there any talk of them working together...or was it just a social visit by Bob to see his old mate?

  9. I honestly don't believe rs gives an arse that a photo goes around. I met him after Rogers concert in shoreditch and got photo but was too shy to really talk..seemed happy enough to have photo. My girl friend made it awkward by telling us both to smile... Cringe... I would have thought he a chilled out dude by now... Great experience had by yourself though !! Awesome !!

  10. Oh I forgot .,. I did tell him that I thought he was a legend .... He said " thank you very much " ... Nuff said .... And that is my rs experience ... I'll take that ....

  12. Amazing. Always loved that record.

    It must be the only one which has been signed by both in existence.
