Anonymous asked: okay heres a question, who are you idols/inspiration/people you look up to, and why?
All of the obvious people like King, Gandhi etc because of the obvious reasons
I’m not an expert on him, but i’ve always found Harvey Milk inspirational because what he did for gay rights
Loads of musicians, for example Lennon & McCartney, Brian Wilson, Alex Turner, Johnny Marr and Damon Albarn to name a few, just because of the immense body of work they have produced, which inspires me to play guitar and write songs
Joseph Bazalgette as well, because he essentially saved London from cholera and designed modern London
Too many authors to name, but especially John Green, as well as his brother Hank, both for his books and for the great work he does for charity, art, Youtubers etc
And finally, John Cooper Clarke, for being the best poet currently alive
I have really profound and interesting answers but no-one ever asks me questionsFollow @PhilRDJones
