Hugh Cornwell’s perfect weekend
"That would be a great home-cooked food, and a movie. I love cooking, it’s one of my passions. I cooked for Keith Floyd once and he absolutely loved it. He came round to my house and told me that he rarely got invited out because people wouldn’t have him round for dinner."

"Hugh finished a great first set with the wonderful Ricky Nelson track Sweeter Than You. Hugh carried on this theme into the second half of the show with a fine cover of Take a Message to Mary by the Everly Brothers."

"We all remained seated at ARC too - a far cry from that anarchic night at the Hammersmith Odeon when many of the seats spent as much time airborne as they did bolted to the floor."
