This week I caught up with singer-song­writer

25, whose sin­gle Wide Eyed Blind is out now. He tells me about wind­ing up

Most em­bar­rass­ing thing that’s ever hap­pened to you?

A full-crotch trouser split at a gig once… I had to spend the rest of it leav­ing lit­tle to the imag­i­na­tion.

Your fun­ni­est celebrity en­counter?

I once met Noel Gal­lagher at a Brits af­ter-party – he was my hero grow­ing up. I asked if I could have a pic, he said yes… if I gave him a cig­a­rette (I don’t smoke). He got pretty an­noyed that I wouldn’t give him a non-ex­is­tent cig­a­rette – so the photo ended up as just him look­ing rather an­noyed!

The most ex­pen­sive thing you’ve ever bought?

The bar tab at my lo­cal.

was one of

He­roes. And now Bush singer and guitarist Gavin has col­lab­o­rated with Bowie’s pian­ist Mike Gar­son on a stripped-back ren­di­tion of the hit.

The track is to be re­leased on a new deluxe edi­tion of Bush’s al­bum The King­dom.

Gavin says: “David was a huge in­spi­ra­tion, a friend, and is much missed. So this was a great thrill.

“The fact we have a Bowie com­po­si­tion with Mike Gar­son on a Bush record blows my mind.”

Very cool.
