Series 1, Episode 1
Phil Parker takes a huge interest in son Jack's band - much to Jack's dismay. Phil may be a cabinet-maker now, but no one can take his silver disc away from him.
Phil is later unprepared for Granville and Eddie's parents, pompous lawyer Ashton, Carmen and Sandy being equally passionate about having a say in the future of the band. On the plus side for Phil, Eddie's mum, Sandy is very attractive and he wastes no time in asking her out.
Concerned about how Jack is coping since he and Jack's mum, Marketa, separated, Phil decides a bit of quality father-and-son time will do the trick. When he hears Radiohead are playing locally, he asks his ex-roadie and work colleague, Kipper, if he can score some tickets. Kipper promises to sort it, but what Kipper says and what Kipper does are two entirely different things.
