Letter 'O' in my #ABCofPunk is for Hazel O'Connor. I was still at school when I saw her live, twice, both times at the Oasis Club in Rye... I can probably remember the face of every one of the crowd of 12 for the first gig and little more than that for the second. So I was probably around 15 and was friendly with the daughter of the owner. She was amazing. These were warm up gigs for the film 'Breaking Glass' which was produced by Dodi Fayed (amongst others) who also produced Hook and Chariots of Fire and had a thing with Princess Di. Anyway, back to the song, Will You features a gorgeous saxophone which was played by Johnny Fingers at the first live gig I saw (I think) and Wesley Magoogan (from Hastings, also in The Beat and played with Billy Ocean) who co-wrote the track with O'Connor. I didn't realise that she's still touring and had a new album out last year... I need to look into that.
