JAMES brown

Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag

“Re­cently my boys have dis­cov­ered James Brown and we dance quite a lot to that. I’m like some old funk dad strut­ting about the room pre­tend­ing to be Johnny ‘Gui­tar’ Wat­son from back in the day.”

THE FIRST GIG I WENT To WEATHER re­port

“We went to Manch­ester with all my dad’s mates when I was about 12 or 13. The gig was at the Manch­ester Apollo and I re­mem­ber Jaco [Pas­to­rius] jump­ing over some amps, fly­ing on­stage like a su­per­hero. I caught his eye and he gave me a little know­ing nod, as if to say, ‘You’re young, but I can see you’re get­ting down with it.’ It was re­ally quite in­spi­ra­tional to me.”
