Robert Fiddaman

Norwich

Describe your style in three words?
'90s throw back.  

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Knebworth - From Norfolk, it was a long journey to Hereford, but we all knew we were going to be witnessing something very special. To see the so many bands I loved in one day was biblical.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
The Happy Monday's and The Rolling Stones. Partying with Keith Richards and Bez would be awesome.

Which Subcultures have influenced you?
The Britpop Movement. The fashion, music and art. 

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
John Lennon, he was more than a working-class hero he was a genius. I'd love to sit down and ask him about his political views on Brexit and Trump and what he thought of Oasis.   

Of all the venues you’ve been to, which is your favourite?
Hard Rock Cafe Manchester, I DJ there, and it's a great place for music and drink. It's like my office in Manchester.    

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Alan McGee, he's the Brian Epstein of our generation, and without him and Creation records we would have just had so much manufactured crap in the charts.
