Bill attended the exclusive VIP event An Afternoon with Eddy, held to celebrate Eddy Grant’s unveiling on to Camden’s The Music Walk Of Fame.

The unique event included a welcome reception, along with a Q&A with Eddy hosted by Kevin Le Gendre.

Eddy, who emigrated to London in the 1960s, has enjoyed a lengthy musical career, with hits including Electric Avenue and I Don’t Wanna Dance. Eddy joins other artists recognised on The Music Walk Of Fame, such as Janis Joplin and UB40.

Bill met with Eddy at the event, and says:

“I had a great time meeting Eddy. We first met in the mid-1970s and have remained friends ever since.

We would perform charity events together, and it was from listening to Eddy’s rhythms that I created my hit record Je Suis Un Rockstar.
