INTERVIEW: The Stranglers
"I borrowed £100 of a mate because I was on the dole at the time. Took my old guitar down to London on the train and got the gig on the spot. Ten days later I was in Kosovo in a whirlwind of war and playing with one of my all time favourite bands, it was fabulous."
The perfect motorbike
"As soon as I turned 16, I got my first scooter, a Lambretta 150. I had a parka with a furry collar to go with it. I was hooked instantly on machines with two wheels, which turned into an obsession with getting something faster."
