I went to Walney School. I moved over there when I was 10. I left school in ’86 and went to Furness Tech on YTS*. Then I got a YTS job in Vickers in the procurement department. I was only a little 16 year old.
I had Duran Duran on my Wall, I did like Wham and I liked Blondie but I think she was a little bit before, when I was in junior school. I loved Oasis, more than Blur …
And I liked Madonna. In fact, I dressed like Madonna! Yeah, desperately seeking Susan. And I loved the films Pretty Woman and Grease. Still my favourite film. It’s the one thing me dad ever did with me, took me to the pictures, that’s probably why I like that.
