This is a question Never Meet Your Heroes

They're bound to disappoint - like the time we booked Wayne Hussey for the B3ta Radio Show. Five minutes before we're due to record, Wayne
phones, lost on the M25 with his Brazilian wife screaming in the background. Not so much the King of Goth, as a hen-pecked flake.

she was never a hero, but i was a fan
when i was about 7 or 8, my family took me to a nintendo roadshow to celebrate the release of the SNES. It was a brilliant day, lots of video gaming and shows and 'famous people'. while out in one of the snes caravans, i was happily playing street fighter, when from nowhere appeared a giant black lady in a lycra/spandex outfit. It took me a second to realise she was 'The Deadly Nightshade' from legendary british TV show Gladiators.
"What are you playing?" she asks,
"erm, streetfighter" i said, quite whimsily.
"Can i play?"
i just nodded and then preceeded to pound her for 2 rounds. "your just too good for me" she boomed and then walked away. I must say, i'd rather have played shadow, and then watch him destroy the joypad when he lost, but i dont think he was there (possibly when he had just been sorted out for taking steroids).

that day will always be the day i beat up a gladiator. i wasnt disapointed in the least, i smiled for days (or a few minutes)
