“I was once having drinks with Jay Kay of Jamiroquai when he took a call for an upcoming gig in Portugal. Midway through the call he asks me if I’ve ever been on a private jet. I told him I hadn’t, at which point he asks his tour manager to reserve a seat for me and a hotel room.
“Sure enough, two days later I’m on the jet with Jay, girlfriend and stylist. Not only did he organise the flights, a massive hotel room, transfers and all food and beverages, on the return he also asked me to stay with my girlfriend at his house for the weekend. Generous to a fault, he even cooked Sunday lunch (admittedly I had to peel the veg).
“He also told me to walk on stage behind him so I could feel the roar of the crowd. It was like a hairdryer.”
