Cautionary Wife Posted February 7, 2007 Share Posted February 7, 2007 THE INDEPENDENT 07 February 2007 Monday was a weird day for the musician Mika, currently atop the singles chart. He was at the heart of a rude exchange between Queen guitarist Brian May and rock critic Alexis Petridis. The journalist panned Mika's album; May urged the "w**ker" Petridis to quit. Judging by his beaming grin on Monday night, Mika enjoyed the altercation. Playing a T-Mobile Street Gig in a big top tent in posh Mayfair, the eccentric delighted a crowd of clowns, cowgirls, monkeys, drag queens and someone dressed as a fly. But the concert was nearly scuppered by noise inspectors hours before. "We were trying to sound-check," Mika said, "and lots of local people complained to the council, who came to shut us down." Westminster Council confirms a rash of complaints at 3pm. Its "noise team" made Mika drop to 70 decibels. Naughty! --- CW. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
