Series 4, Episode 4 - It's Only Rock And Roll
Rodney has joined a new band, and Del immediately capitalises on this by booking them into The Shamrock Club to play for the St Patrick's night festivities.
Taking his place as the band's manager, Del winces his way through their rehearsals, and when the Shamrock gig results in a fight, the band are forced to leg it, leaving the instruments behind them.
When Rodney finds out the musical equipment has vanished, he contacts the police and helps them with their enquiries. Del sees Rodney with the constable, and is forced to step in: it turns out that Del had the instruments on sale or return, and he'd sent them back to the shop.
Rodney's dreams of showbiz fame have been shattered, so he goes ballistic when he sees his old group performing their song on Top of the Pops and realises that without Del's interference he might have made it to number one.
The band's song, Boys Will Be Boys, was composed by John Sullivan.
