Who do you admire for what they have done?
As a world leader I greatly admired Nelson Mandela for his incredible stand against racism and as part of his attempt to build a better future his ability to forgive those who had committed so many appalling acts against his people. In music I really admire Paul Oakenfold for all his achievements over the years and he is still a very down to earth solid guy. I also really admire the person who invented Deliveroo and finally… Larry David, Peter Kaye and Ricky Gervais for making me laugh.
What really pisses you off?
People at buffets who jump in early and leave you all the shit stuff
What’s your most prized possession?
Tough to choose between these two. I’m not really bothered with possessions but I think my framed disk from Public Enemy for being on their album “It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back” is kinda special to me otherwise the signed topless photo of Amo which has been hanging in my loo since 1996.
What is the secret behind your success?
Being passionate and not giving up too easily
