The Rolling Stones at Cardiff stadium, Jaggers dancing man.

Led Zeppelin - I love them but it’s purely for the after party man.
David Bowie - I’d use the time to try to steal some knowledge.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Beat culture has had a big influence on me. Most people seem to be influenced by it too, even if they don’t know it yet. And tattoo culture I suppose, its history is a rich tapestry and it's full of Bandits and Artists. Definitely not boring.

Hmmmm, I guess I’d meet Bruce Lee.

I love The Sunflower Lounge in Brum, if you get the right mix of booze and bodies in there you’re in for a right show.
