I follow Danny Baker on Twitter, and one day he said he was off to Waterstones in Greenwich to attend his friend's children's book promotion. I live in the area and wanted to get his book. He was very charming at being "mugged" and insisted on posing for wacky photos and signing my copy. And, he was wearing massive headphones, he really is a music-addict.
In the past, I've met Captain Sensible, chief of the Damned on several occasions. I roadied for my mate's punk band who supported a side-project of his called the Doctor Space Toad Experience, on 4-or five gigs in the North. Not only is he a brilliant musician-totally under-rated-he is a charming,gentle,witty, erudite man, a joy to meet. A strict veggie, loves rabbits and proper beer.
