We subsequently lost the match by 15 runs?? This distinct lack of bowling ability is no doubt the reason for you dedicating your life to the drums and music.

->Will replies: No I am quite happy thanks
Ruth and Kate: [to guy] This is really for all the band, but me and Kate went to see you a few Monday's ago at Wembley, and you were totally wicked by the way, but afterwards my brother was picking us up and he had to go to the toilet in Wembley Arena first in case he wet himself on the way home in our mum's fiesta, so he was in the men's loo after queuing for about 30 minutes, and he swears he saw Bryan May of Queen drying his hair under the electric hand dryer, and mumbling about getting some drink poured over him. So first of all we want to know what do you think of Bryan May being a Coldplay fan, and do you feel it is justified for someone to pour a drink over him, because let's face it could anyone ever forgive him after the tragedy that was the 'We Will Rock You' musical?????? Oh and tell Guy me and Kate think he is seriously cute.
->Guy replies: I admire anyone who can wear that hair with that amount of dignity that he does and not give in the pressures around him to get it cut...i don't think it was justified to pour a drink over his head..
