He’s just so frickin’ gorgeous, is Mr Lidell. And charismatic too. And dead talented. And obviously, because he’s from near where I was born, we have some sort of cosmic connection. I don’t think he knows about our cosmic thing yet, although I suspect he’s getting a strange tingling sensation right about . . . NOW! Although his music is proper good and that, I get the feeling that lots of folk like him more than they would do if he was a complete ugger. This is understandable. He’s not interested in fame or adulation, but my GOD does he deserve it. He is brilliant live, totally brilliant . . . even when Jools Holland’s getting in the way.
(Jamie here was a popular choice, but I’m dedicating him to Heidi and Dani: two uber beauties who know a good fitty when they see one xx)
