The Observer

(Photos below.) Feb 19th, 1995.

My one and only appearance on Page 3! (If you're not from the UK, ask a Brit friend to explain why this is funny.)

The indefatigable Jerome Burne sold another story on me, this time to the nice people at The Observer. It was based on the Heart Of The Matter documentary that was due to air the same evening. Clearly, my total domination of the world's media was gathering pace.

Newspapers are generally divided into news (at the front) and features (at the back). I have no idea why this non-news story was promoted to such glorious page 3 prominence. I can only assume that something newsy, intended for that slot, had to be ditched at the last minute and they needed something to fill the gap.
