ONCE, a few years ago, I was invited to spend an evening with Pink Floyd’s drummer Nick Mason.
I arrived at his house fearful that I wouldn’t be able to cope with the excesses of a genuine rock god.
Well, after a glass of wine he produced a lovely chicken casserole that he’d made and afterwards he made cocoa and fell asleep in front of the ten o’clock news.
There was a similar surprise this week, when I spent the afternoon with The Who’s legendary frontman Roger Daltry.
This is a man who lived through all of Keith Moon’s madness.
He’s seen cars being driven into swimming pools and thrown televisions from hotel windows.
He played at Woodstock, for crying out loud.
We met at a pub in West London, where we drank water (well, he did) and we talked about hearing aids.
Apparently, the best is from a company called Widex.

Next week I’ll probably find out that these days Robert Plant likes doing watercolours.”
