I’ve raced back to Blighty to shoot a video for Il Divo and Toni Braxton which will become the anthem for this years World Cup. As I stepped of the plane a few days ago I heard a Heathrow worker singing Gene Pitney’s “24 Hours From Tulsa” and found myself singing it for the rest of the day.
Then I heard he’d died in the Cardiff Hilton. They said he’d taken a nap fully clothed and never woke up.
And now it’s a cold Sunday evening and guess where I’m staying? Yup – in the Cardiff Hilton room 423. I wonder if the bed I just took a nap on is the same one where Gene took his final zzz last week? Where does one go to find out information like that?
