Having just finished reading Barlow's autobiography I can't help but admire the man. I'm not one of these 'Frodsham till I die' people but I think it's only natural to take pride in someone from your home town making a name for themselves. And let's face it, Take That were (are?) pretty much as big as bands get.
I suppose what I'm really saying is that if I saw Barlow in the Helter Skelter I'd almost certainly buy him a beverage.
Makes me feel slightly guilty for terrorising him over an entire summer many years ago.
Alas, the folly of youth.
