He is not just the figurehead of European hip hop and electronic music, but also an icon that especially young people seem to identify with. With socks pulled up to his knees, chequered shorts and a smirky grin on his face, he may remind you of a nerdy school kid, rather than a serious musician or even an artist! His song titles may seem pointless and his dance moves smell a bit like the early 2000s, but it's on stage where it all comes together. The freaky appearance, songs like "Alors on dance" and the robo moves are all it takes to excite thousands of fans all across Europe. However, don't... Read More

The Rock and Roll generation have finally turned old, despite their best efforts. Roger Daltrey once immortalised the line "hope I die before I get old" back when he was a young whippersnapper of just 21. Now he's 69 years old and still doing gigs just like the members of the Rolling Stones, U2, Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top. Even Ozzy Osbourne has dusted down his black cape to come out of retirement every now and then.
Yes it's hard to believe that the rebellious punk rockers out there who were busy trying to incite Great Britain to be anarchic are now old enough to qualify for bus passes.... Read More
