My 5 seconds of fame!
The Rolling Stones at the O2, Sunday 25th November 2012
Support: Johnny Depp, Iggy Pop,Elton John, Pete Townshend , Nick Cave and…me!
Some if you will know that there was no support act for the Stones on Sunday. Instead director Malachy McAnenny of Stink TV put together a 4 minute movie of fans around the world talking about what the Stones meant to them. Two of my contributions made the cut, at 1.17 and again at 2.21. Malachy hopes to release it as an extra on the (inevitable) DVD that will come from these concerts.

I only said that I wanted to sleep with Charlie by mistake. We had been given the questions in advance so we could think about our replies. To the question Who Is Your Favourite Stone? I had intended to answer Charlie. And to the question Which Stone Would You Like To Sleep With? I intended to answer Anita Pallenberg (who has always been a Rolling Stone, at least in spirit ). Somehow I got the answers the wrong way round, and that’s what made it into the film.
