Will Mossie show for Joe’s swan song?
KATE MOSS feels just as much at home in front of a microphone as she does on the catwalk, says pianist Joe Thompson, who tickles the ivories for the final time tonight at The Ivy Club.
Thompson — the house pianist since the West End venue opened 13 years ago — tells me: ‘Kate would always sit on the piano stool. She would be like, “Hello Darling, shall we have a sing-song?” and she’d sit there with her arm around me.’
Joe plans to concentrate on tutoring, but would come out of retirement for the Windsors: ‘I’ve played on a few occasions for the Royal Family so I wouldn’t say no to them.’
