Woody…

I was looking for something else in the dusty pile of hard drives, but this Sunday Times magazine piece set me thinking about Woody. He was like a delicate bird nesting in the Dorchester hotel suite whilst the PR machine for whatever film was being promoted churned efficiently around him, passing journalists and photographers before him in what must have been a numbing steady stream…woody

Mark E Smith , some time ago…

 

I had a drink with Mark E Smith in the pub behind Manchester’s train station. I told him some important things and he listened. He wanted to leave as “that bloke at the bar wants a fight with me”. We went to some waste ground behind the pub. A few rolls of film later and I drove him home.
