Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I met David Bowie while I was a roadie for him, although I use the word roadie loosely. A friend of mine was his tour manager, and I tagged along and helped paint things for the set and fetched wood from the yard. I was more of a gofer. David was wonderful to be around, like someone from Mars.


Winner (with Glenn Tilbrook) of the 2008 Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. See more »
