is it Weird see­ing your oWn name up there as a brand for a fes­ti­val?

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Live Evil -

“As with ev­ery­thing I’ve done in the past, it al­ways starts off as a joke be­tween mates. We knew this was go­ing to be a gig cen­tred around me and my record, so the book­ing agents would al­ways re­fer to it as ‘Jimbo-fest’ or ‘Jamie gig’ or what­ever. But Lenmania is a pretty cool name, and by the time you’re a solo artist it’s al­ways your name on the poster and your face on the t-shirts, so I think you have to con­front that head on and not take your­self too se­ri­ously. With the poster it’s the back of my baldy old head, so that shows my sense of hu­mour, and it’s meant to show my per­son­al­ity and be a cel­e­bra­tion of the record.”
