Following on from Kitten's thread about facts about your home town I was just wondering which famous musicians/bands/singers/music industry people come from your home town????

I'm from Coventry - and off the top of my head the following are from Cov:D

Pete Waterman (as in Stock, Aitkin and Waterman)

The Specials (or Special AKA as they were also know)

King (Paul King)

The Enemy



That's if for now but sure there will be some more I'll think of!!

Don't think there's anyone from Hadleigh!

I used to live in Braintree, where the Prodigy were from and walked past Liam's house on my way to college, and also lived in Colchester where Damon from Blur lived :)

Lol who's Nikki Chapman?

Nasty Nick from Eastenders is a HerneBay lad and so is Suggs from Madness

Bob Geldof has a house the other side of us in Faversham.

You can tell Mrs Depp comes from the most famous musical city in the world.

The drummer from the Animals came from Gateshead and some of Lindisfarne (Fog on the Tyne) and Gazza well i know he was a footballer but he did sing once with Lindisfarne

Away to think if there is any more

Nikki Chapman was a judge on Pop Idol (back in the day when it was good and Will Young won) and also Popstars (I think??)

Awwww Suggs from Herne Bay..... Tracy never told me that.... I had such a crush on him back in the 80's.... in fact he's still pretty lush now - even if he does do fish finger adverts....:eek::D

That m'dear is a matter of opinion....;):D

Although I have to say Cilla's 'Anyone who had a heart' is a fav of mine.... (now I've written that I'm not sure it was Cilla.... please tell me it was....:eek:)

And I'm sure I would have 'bopped' around to Sonia back in the 80's when I had big hair and co-ordinated shoes, beads, earrings, bangles and handbags...lol!!

And anyway - you have Coventry and Pete Waterman to blame (erm.. sorry thank for Sonia......):rolleyes:
