1977-78: Essentially performed as on "Sheik Yerbouti", with the "Is This Guy Kidding or What?" bit thrown in from Stage VI. This song premiered on 10/20, and was performed again on 10/30. For these first two performances, this tune is rather skeletal, missing the high-pitched backing vocals, and without the slowly building ending. The third performance is on 12/31, and by this time the band had practiced the tune enough to play it as we know it. Frank opened this song with the monologue about the teenage girl meeting and seducing the "pop star of her choice". Like "Billy the Mountain" years before, Frank changed names and slightly altered the story depending upon where the concert was taking place, but for the most part the story was the same.
1978 Aug-Oct: Essentially played as on YCDTOSA Volume VI. Frank gave his "English rock star" lecture as a prelude to the tune, though thankfully it was shorter on this tour than on the last.
