i met adam faith in the early nineties in a large texaco station outside brighton on a bank holiday. as i had met a few so called celebrities because of my work at that time i must say i was impressed by how down to earth he was . instead of craving for attention like almost all of the pathetic characters i had met , he came in the shop while i was in a long queue walked all the way around the back unnoticed and grabbed a coke. we both met at the counter and i asked how he was doing and he replied and asked about me. i was conscious not to appear to be a nuisance but i wish i had spoken to him a bit more especially as i bought his autobiog later on and knew more of his talents. another opportunity squandered is how i fondly remember that day.
