Had a brief meeting with ex Stone Bill Wyman this morning. He was promoting his new album "A Stone Alone" which is an anthology of his music. I handed Bill a print of a painting I had previously painted which he had annotated with "They'll think I'm your dad and you're my daughter". He signed a new canvas for me and entitled it "Je suis un Rock star".
Bill is one of the nicest guys in rock and considering his music background, he could teach the youngsters a thing or two in humility.
Bumped into David Essex who explained he was off to record a new album. He managed to scrawl a nice "Oh what a circus" onto a portrait of him when he was considerably younger, which he pointed out although I tried to soften the blow by telling him he hasn't changed that much.....I'll leave that one for you to decide hmmmm...
Those naughty Sugababes were out and about promoting their new single Red Dress. After Mutya's departure, the lovely Amelle has replaced her vocals and I have to say her lovely looks too. The Babes are all absolute crackers. Heidi was so friendly and chatted for ages and ages (alright Heidi get in the car now) as did Amelle. The only original member left, Keisha just popped her head out of the car window to grace us with her presence but she still looked stunning and was v. friendly.
