Personal Quote:

[on David Bowie] We looked towards what he did, we are all still walking in his slipstream. We are still many, many yards behind what he was doing because he led the way. He was the leader, he was the guv'nor. See more »


Has just finished his new album and is touring. He is now organising a event similiar to Live AId except this time it will be helping the Aids virus. The event will be held in Wales. See more »
