Question 42 answer

Jonathon Cohen tinkled the ivories. I am told that Spike Heathley played the bass, but I am ignorant of the drummer's name. Mr Cohen was very tall, and once trod on my foot in the Barbican Centre. This isn't a great claim to fame, it's true.

The movie star was Jeremy Irons. What amazes me, on seeing old Playaway footage, is how ancient Irons looked in those days. If anything, he has grown younger since. I have also encountered Mr Irons, who sat down at the next table to mine in a Newcastle nightclub. I pointed him out to my companions, none of whom had heard of him. They were Norwegian.
