Give It Away Give It Away Give It Away Now…

Spent Monday night at The Cafe De Paris…
Felt like old times but minus the clock stopped at the time a bomb hit it, Fat Tony’s DJing and my friend Robbie hot off the JPG catwalk in his black suit and new sunglasses missing a step and rolling head-first down the stairs styling it out by hitting the dance-floor running… OK hitting it falling.
I was there to help out at the latest fundraiser for HOPING and what a night it was: Jarvis Cocker ‘Moved Closer’ and walked from the stage onto a table to serenade the main bidder, Boy George dubbed it up with a new working of ‘Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?’ with a quick guest vocal from Kate Moss, Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr hosted, Jimmy Carr (no wonder Jeremy Clarkson was there… all those cars haha) told some jokes for a small fortune, Gemma Arterton got all leather trousered on us taking Maroon 5 up on their challenge and did indeed move like Jagger to ‘Sympathy For The Devil’, new boys Rizzle Kicks really did kick the night off and The Red Hot Chili Peppers rounded it all up with Flea asking people to ‘pony up some cash..’ which is a new one to me I have to say.
A huge amount of money was raised: hurrah!
And there was a huge amount of chat regarding Anthony K’s new look: is the tash for Movember? A Freddie Mercury tribute? What’s with the hair? And a split on whether the T Shirt really should now stay on….. perhaps we should have thrown him one of the ZOLTAR designed ones from the goodie bag?
