Most embarrassing experience:
The best night of my life - tripped out of my skull on Valentines Day 1980 and going (as the only guy in the group) to a disco with 15 young women - all in fancy dress. Dressed like a priest I was, with a proper RC priest's shirt and collar (borrowed from a mate, who was a proper RC priest). You get some spooky reactions, let me tell you, when people notice that you're in a real Roman collar while wearing shades, late at night, in the middle of February, in a north-east English town, accompanied by 15 drunken girlies in fancy dress and off your box on a red microdot. I have never laughed so much before or since.
Most memorable experiences:
Lots. Seeing DB numerous times. Seeing lots of other great acts too.
Having three kids.

Playing in a punk band in 76-77 - dressed as a droogie.
Best Bowie gigs been to:
Thin White Duke, Wembley Arena, 8th May 1976.
Favourite Bowie event you've been to?
Apart from gigs, none, yet. The Tin Machine gig at the Kilburn National Ballroom on the first TM tour (white light/black suits) was incredibly memorable - DB in a small hall (you can't beat it) - you could actually see him without having to look at a huge screen. Great venue. I saw the Smiths there too (check out the 'Rank' album - I was there - my mate reckons you can actually hear me bawling, at the top of my voice, "Oh mother I can feel the soil falling over my head.").
Indian Curry (Saag Gosht).
