And the worst? A re­cent Dy­lan con­cert was dis­ap­point­ing. Ter­ri­ble light­ing, couldn’t see him at all. Who is the most fa­mous per­son to have shown up at one of your gigs? Prob­a­bly Ewan MacGre­gor or John C Reilly. Most em­bar­rassin­gon-stage moment? My pants split­ting in Groupies. Would you? Not now. Been down that road in the past. Have you a spe­cial stage wardrobe? Frilly shirts, suit jack­ets, se­cret un­der­wear. Any use­ful stage tips? Open your eyes oc­ca­sion­ally; try to be en­ter­tain­ing if pos­si­ble. If you could be in anyother band, which one? The Kinks most likely. Or Des­tiny’s Child. Who’s in­vited to your aftershow party? Friends, dig­ni­taries, al­co­holics. What’s your best tour story? I’d have to say hav­ing break­fast with Paul McCart­ney at his house while open­ing for Squeeze in 1996.

In con­ver­sa­tion with Tony Clay­ton-Lea. Ron Sex­smith plays Dublin’s Academy on Thurs­day
