No prizes for guessing the decade! This is how I looked during those far-off boogie nights in New York, around 1978, when I loved to be seen at the hippest nightclub in history, Studio 54.

PSYCHIC Uri Geller is planning to use a Y-shaped twig to find buried Egyptian treasure on a tiny Scots island.
Geller bought The Lamb, a rock off North Berwick in the Firth of Forth, for £30,000 in February.
He believes Tutankhamun’s sister left treasure on the island.
And he says he’ll search for it using dowsing – the use of a Y-shaped twig or rod to find buried gems, precious metal or water sources underground.
Geller, who believes The Lamb is linked to the pyramids at Giza, said: “I have a strong feeling there is treasure on the island.
“In the past I’ve located gold mines, jewellery, oil fields etc. It will be very easy for me to dowse The Lamb because it is so small.
“If I locate the treasure I will seek permission from the Scottish Government to excavate it. It is not the monetary value, it is the historical value that interests me.
“I’m planning to come in January with a boat load of about 50 people who want to join me.”
Geller had hoped to take his pal Michael Jackson to The Lamb when the king of pop visited Britain for his comebacktour.
“If Michael had been alive I would have taken him there,” he said. “He was very interested in the mysterious and the enigmatic.
“I’m just so eager to go myself.The Lamb has an amazing aura.”
Geller believes there is treasure on The Lamb because of an ancient legend that Scotland got it’s name from a sister of Tutankhamun called Scota. It’s claimed Scota fell out with her father and fled Egypt to a group of windswept islands off the northwest coast of Europe.
The story says she brought the Stone of Destiny with her, and Scotland was named after her when she died.
Geller said: “I like to think that the first placed they moored was in the Firth of Forth, off Lamb island.
“This island has links to the pyramids, King Arthur, Robert the Bruce and the ancient Irish kings. It is one of the keystones to British mythology – I’m thrilled to be its owner.”

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
