My sister reckons she used to know Rod Stewart. She reckons that he asked her once about her family while she was in the pub with Rod and his girlfriend of the time.
She mentioned me and said “He’s thin and he plays the violin.” She told me a while ago about this and she reckoned that he’d included it in a song. The song is called THAT’S ALL YOU NEED and you can see the lyrics here (the pertinent line is the third one and is, if you don’t want to click the link, “Concerns my brother who’s thin and played violin”)
This, of course, has become the basis of many a frequent and short lived conversation. I had a claim to fame. Something to be proud of.
People were justifiably in awe of me because I had appeared in a Rod Stewart song. I can think only Maggie May could have felt as happy as I’ve been over the last few years.
But my sister lied. The bitch.
I’ve just remembered.
I couldn’t play the violin at all. I was shite.
