Went to the John Otway film screening event at the Broadway. Terrific.
Huge parts of the audience were in fits of laughter at the stories of greatest failure in Rock ‘n Roll history.
Asked about Nottingham, John celebrated the Running Horse and lamented that he’d never performed at Rock City.
Note, whilst none of the film’s many hundreds of sponsors were in the audience tonight, there was sufficient and apparently unexpected public demand for the event to be moved to the main screen.
A special event, with huge warmth too.
Good luck at the BAFTA’s.
The film – http://www.otwaythemovie.com/ – was made for his sixtieth birthday, following a successful fans campaign for a second hit for his fiftieth birthday.
The fear I have is that he’ll commission a Ben Elton style musical for his seventieth birthday.
