“I got to know the guys in the band twenty years ago and whenever they are in the North East they come over to my shop in Sunderland to get bits of tattoo work done.
They’re mates now and I go down and see them in Tewksbury where they’re from. They always said they would play at my 50th. They did. I nearly killed myself dancing to this song. I used to be able to do all the moves but not now. My hips have gone. I need to be anaesthetised these days!”
