The Last Celebrity

I’ve seen a number of minor celebrities during my time of commuting. In fact all were so minor that I can’t remember any except Martin Bell, complete with white suit, in Euston tube station.

But tonight, on my penultimate night in London I saw a proper celebrity.

Arriving at Victoria Station I was greeted by two fire engines and some kind of emergency control centre vehicle so it was pretty clear I wasn’t getting the tube anytime soon.

My friendly Big Issue seller confirmed that Victoria was completely shut so I had a quick chat and said good bye to him as tomorrow is my last day in London.

Being in a hurry to get home jumped into a cab… As we wound our way through a hot and sweaty London I saw my last celebrity… rock guitar supremo Brian May.

At last a proper bona fide international superstar and rock overlord.
