We are sat in a caravan drinking tea. A pack of chocolate Hobnobs is passed around. We dip our biscuits and talk about Dale Winton, whom everyone agrees is a very charming man. I stare into the mug. This isn’t quite how we pictured our Saturday night working out. I was expecting strippers. Or at least some groupies and a paddling pool filled with jelly. Maybe a few litres of whisky and a mountainous supply of substances we really shouldn’t talk about here.
After all, my host is a worshipful member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and front man for one of the biggest-selling bands of all time. He’s toured the world for 32 years. He is Brian Johnson from AC/DC. And he’s boiling the kettle again.
