Si - aka "Simon"




    27th February 1982.

Where do you live?
    Now living in Bolton with my wife to be Natalie! I'm originally from Wigin. That's 'Wigin', not 'Wigan'. No pie jokes or mentioning Orwell please. If he visited now he'd love it I'm sure.


Your favourite David Bowie album?
    My favourites are the Eno Trilogy of Low, "Heroes" and Lodger, but I love the old classics Hunky Dory, Ziggy, Aladdin Sane and the recent ones too, Outside in particular.

Your favourite David Bowie song?
    My favourites today are Teenage Wildlife, "Heroes", Warszawa, Lady Grinning Soul, Five Years, The Secret Life Of Arabia, Sweet Thing and Black Country Rock, but this is subject to change daily!

Most embarrassing experience:
    I tend to think that I spent most of my late teens and early 20's making a complete tittock of myself. Thankfully I'm a little more grounded these days.

Most memorable experiences:
    The whole Riverside experience back in 2003 was memorable if a little hazy in places, although thats probably a good thing! A Verve gig at the Manchester Apollo in 1998 was a special night, as was Haigh Hall the week after. Having a pint with John Squire in Leeds, United's treble in Barcelona 99, falling in love with Natalie and knowing that it really WAS love. Lots. My visits to holland over the years, getting lost in a village called Eggington trying to find my friends house for a lift home up north after the Wembley Arena gig in 2003, Hearing 'Earthling' and db for the first time was pretty special too!!!

Best Bowie gigs been to:
    The Point 2003.

Favourite Bowie event you've been to?
    Riverside meet up and concert in 2003.

Favourite beverage?
    Lager, pineapple juice and tea! Not in the same glass mind.

Favourite food?
    Any Indian, I like Chinese and you can't whack good ol' English bangers and mash!!!

Favourite sexual position?
    Dangling from a light fitting with a pork pie in my mouth.

Name one thing that you completely hate?
    Waiting for ANYTHING. It's not right! I'm very impatient. Bad manners also piss me off, and kids on buses playing techno smurf shite really loud on their mobiles. People who don't appreciate Bowie and great music get on my tits too!
