  • He worked as a mail boy at EMI and eventually worked his way to become an A&R representative.
  • Says that the first time he gave a criticism was at age four when he looked at his mother's white fuzzy pillbox hat and remarked "Mum, you look like a poodle" [Source: His book "I Don't Mean to Be Rude, But..."]
  • His best friend is his London neighbor Jackie St Claire.
  • (2004) His former girlfriend is 'Terri Seymour' (qv).
