My Heroes

Posted on

They say you should never meet your heroes, but in my time working at ROKIT I've had the good fortune to meet the two people I was obsessed with when I was a kid. Both of them were everything I hoped they would be and more. Graham Coxon was simultaneously the nerdiest and the coolest bastard ever. From the ages of 13 to 18 I tried to dress exactly like him and even ruined my eyesight by wearing my Coxon glasses too much. Having now met him I'm as in love as I ever was.

My other hero who didn't let me down was Thom Yorke who approached me at the till whilst I was whistling a song off his solo record. He talked about environmental issues just as you would hope and was perfectly nice. Thank you for not shattering my dreams boys, and thank you for the music.

Although the guy who plays the baddy in karate kid came in once and he was a right chump. Oh well.

Take care.
