I TOOK Peter Grant, the super-smooth crooner, down to my bar, Fibre, for a drink after his sell-out show at Leeds City Varieties.
He’s a true professional, the day before he was so ill with flu, he was on the brink of cancelling the gig but he soldiered on anyway – and you’d never have known it. What a performer!
Peter is from Leeds but has now moved to London, where he’s busy meeting and greeting, wining and dining, every night.
He confided that socialising down there is costing him a fortune – and he’s a clean-living lad so it’s not as if he’s quaffing lakes of booze.
At least he knows he’ll always get a drink on me when he’s in Yorkshire.
If you don’t already own his album, Traditional, you should check it out – it’s quietly becoming a classic!
