A year or so ago I came across this reality show with Ryan Cayabyab and a bunch of young folks he was mentoring, and the scene I chanced on was when they had a surprise visit from a pop icon from the 80’s.

So there was Ryan, saying that they had a visitor and in walks Tony Hadley, and I fan scream in my seat for about five seconds straight, but then I see the looks on the kids faces they’re like “who’s the old geezer” and the camera zooms in on Tony’s face as it dawns on him “F*k they don’t know who I am.” And that to me was the saddest moment ever.

So here’s to my idol Tony Hadley and the rest of the Spandau Ballet, who will forever be, to me, Gold.
