The Day I Met……..Cathy Dennis (Among Others!)

Snapped at the Metropole Hotel in Brighton during the 1991 PolyGram Autumn Conference, this photo depicts the sheer delight on the lovely singer, and mega-successful songwriter, Cathy Dennis’s face at being surrounded by the (almost certainly very drunk) album sales team (that’s me, 2nd right).

Did she want to touch any of us all night long? My professional integrity is still intact so it would be wrong of me to say, but with the choice on offer, you have to admit that it must have been virtually impossible for her to resist………

The tales I could tell of this particular event could probably fill a book, however, talking to Bob Geldof in a ridiculous Irish accent, witnessing a sales rep fighting in a corridor with Wet Wet Wet’s perennial bell-end Marti Pellow and asking scary heavy rocker Glenn Danzig if he would “like to have a wrestle later” before running off clucking like a chicken, are a few of the highlights.

It was Brighton after all…
