What makes you smile?

I know its awful but people who have a small trip and try to recover looking cool in process as though nothing happened!

Favourite sound in the whole world?

The silence when the whole family have gone out leaving me home alone…...bliss

Which song gets you on the dance floor?

Oh so so many but I don’t need that much persuasion to get on the floor. September from Earth Wind and Fire does it every time - or Ce Ce Peniston Finally……or…..ok I’ll stop there.

What is your claim to fame?

Meeting Oasis founder ‘Alan McGee’ at last years “Sunniside Live”. What a lovely man and even got a few selfies with him too - which I’ve probably shown everyone I know!

Best concert/show you’ve ever been to?

Again, so many but either ‘Bruce Springsteen’ at the Stadium of Light as the man did an amazing two  and a half hour set or Madness at the Arena in Newcastle.

Favourite movie of all time and why? 

It’s got to be Home Alone  as my son and I still watch it and still laugh.

Who is the best celebrity you’ve met and why?

I met ‘Smoove’ from ‘Smoove and Tyrell’ a few months ago to do an interview and it turns out he used to live over the road from me when we were kids! A great lad and a HUGE music fan.

What is your favourite thing to do/place to go on Wearside?

I love Seaburn on a cool sunny Summer morning when very few people are and with my dog “Eddie”. Its one of the best beaches in the UK in my opinion, especially when the tide is out.

Tell me one thing about yourself that nobody knows.

I was in a band with mates years ago. We only were together for 4 months and even cut a CD single too!! But don’t look for it as you’ll never find it. Only we have copies of it. And its was AWFUL!

What would it say on your tombstone?

He always had a reason to smile.
