Golden oldie a Hot Leg fan

May 7, 2009

JUSTIN HAWKINS has bagged himself a 72-year-old fan.

On tour with his new band HOT LEG, the former DARKNESS singer invited pensioner Rita Peachey to sing with him onstage at Birmingham live music club, Barfly.

And now the pair have become great mates.

Rita, of Birmingham, told me: “Since the show he’s asked me backstage at the O2 Academy in Birmingham twice, dedicated a song from debut album Red Light Fever to me on stage, and I’ve even met his family.

“He’s also confided in me about his drug addictions and told me he’s completely clean after many years. I’m really proud to be his oldest ever fan.”

She added: “I couldn’t believe it when he picked me out of the audience and asked me to sing with him on stage. It was incredible.”
