John Cooper Clarke and Me

I was looking through some old Facebook photos and stumbled upon this photo.  Yes, it is a rotten photo but it is evidence of meeting the wonderful John Cooper Clarke.  This was in Godforsaken Morecombe sometime last year; his performance was fantastic as always.  Friends and I were at the end of the queue to meet him and he overheard that we were going for something to eat and asked to join us.  Yes, I went for a Chinese with John Cooper Clarke.  He is lovely (friendly, witty, down to earth) xxx.Sarah & John Cooper Clarke

He is definitely a performance poet as all his poems sound better read by him, although once you have seen him a few times (or heard his recordings) you can hear his voice as you read.

Catch him at The Lowry 1st August 2009
