Some of you may know that I spent around 16 years of my life as a club DJ. I played regularly at clubs like Bedrock, Gods Kitchen and Renaissance as well as opening for Oasis at Wembley Stadium. I released my own mix CD and got to tour the world.
And then this morning I wake up to the news that a certain footballer with a familiar name has announced plans to become a DJ when he retires from kicking a ball around.
For obvious reasons, his name follows me everywhere I go. Delivery men crack jokes when they drop off parcels. Hotel receptionists look just a little disappointed when I check in. Especially in Liverpool! I even get emails asking for signed photos. I’m tempted to send them one 😉
I guess it could be worse. Maybe in ten years time he’ll launch Steven Gerrard Photography.
So, Steven, if you’re reading this (and I’m sure you check my site regularly!), I’m fine with all of this. All I ask is a small donation of maybe 5% of your football wages and you can use my name for anything you wish. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
Oh, and by the way…. two can play at that game!
