The Hairy Bikers Q&A
The Hairy Bikers
‘Famous Last Words’ with The Hairy Bikers…
The Hairy Bikers are back on the road – this time bringing their double-headed, double-bearded, double-bellied cooking expertise (along with a bit of chat and laughter) to the stage. ‘The Hairy Biker’s Big Night Out’ rolls across the country throughout April and May. Oh, for the record, Dave is the one who wears glasses.
Last thing you did that made you feel good?
DAVE: The Hairy Bikers Big Night Out Tour, playing in my hometown of Barrow made me feel very good and privileged. Also, seeing the reviews from those hometown gigs gave me a great feeling.
SIMON: Playing in the garden with Dylan, my youngest son. We were playing catchy-rugby!
Last thing you’d want to be doing right now?
S: My ironing.
D: My vat return.
Last night on Earth… What’s your poison?
D: A bottle of Montrachet.
S: An Italian wine called Sicani.
Last supper … What are you ordering?
S: Bacon sandwich with a hot cup of tea. You can’t beat it.
D: A selection of really fresh sushi – I really love it – and a Japanese beer.
Last person you’d want to share a drink with?
D: My wife Lilli.
S: My wife Jane.
“There are no positive attributes to worrying”
Last time you shed a tear and why?
S: When my youngest son, who was nine at the time, got a poem he’d wrote published in a book. The poem was called ‘If I Could Capture’ and when I read the poem it made me shed a couple of tears. D: Doing my vat return!
Last refuge… where would you go?
D: I would be found sitting on top of a mountain in the Grampian Hills called Ben Rhynims. It has an incredible view and it was somewhere I went an awful lot. I would sit up there with a pot of tea when I lived in Aberdeenshire for 15 years. It is my definite place of refuge.
S: Bamburgh Beach. I would go to the Wyndings part of it.
Last the course… tips on loot, love & life?
S: I would say love is always found in companionship.
D: My tip in life would be to try not to worry too much. Worrying never produces anything. There are no positive attributes to worrying. My tip in love would be: never give up!
Last but one … random question: big guys on big bikes with big appetites – tell us about something you like that’s small and dainty and a little bit refined?
D: I really like porcelain. I used to own an antiques shop and I still like to collect Victorian Vaseline glass and porcelain.
S: Shellfish. Small dainty, refined – and I love ’em!
Your Famous Last Words…
D: Oh bugger. And I was having such a good time.
