This image recalls the time I sat opposite Bez on a train from Liverpool to Manchester. The Happy Mondays go-go dancer must have wolfed down a whole pack of Tunnocks Teacakes. He did not offer me one.
I once saw Kevin McCloud from hit Channel 4 series “Grand Designs” at Manchester Piccadilly Station. Kevin spent several minutes studying the departure boards. I have to tell you that he looked a little confused. I wonder where he was going. I wonder if he knew where he was going. As he strolled around the recently refurbished station I imagined him saying “They’ve gone over budget, but I really like what they’ve achieved here.” OK, this story does not include the rock and roll excesses of the Bez tale but it does give you an insight into life on the road for a top television presenter.
