Early Fame

Ask Katy

Hi Katy. My question's for Nick. Seeing as the band went professional in 1980, with my mathematical genius i worked out that you must have only been 17 or 18 years old and constantly being in the public eye. I'm 17, and I just can't imagine the pressure that must've been on you at my age, even though you're doing something you're passionate about! Music is my passion, and I was wondering how it was to be famous so young? Love and peace to the whole band too! Bethan x

"Well ya gotta be careful what you wish for. Fortunately, I was not alone. I think being in a band was beneficial for our collective sanity, although the initial five year period from 1980 - 85 did cause some damage for certain members of the band by the time we parted company. NR"
