Who said snooker wasn't cool?
The Rolling Stones have a guy in their tour part whose job it is to erect a snooker table at every venue they play. Bernard Butler, the former Suede guitarist, wanted to turn professional. The first thing James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers learned to play on the guitar was the BBC snooker theme.
And then, of course, there was Chas 'n' Dave.
Moving on...it seems that The Spinto Band are the latest converts to the 22-ball game
The Delaware sextet recently played a gig at Centrepoint Snooker Club in London and seem to have become weirdly obsessed with the game after seeing it on TV during their travels, even though they admit it took the best part of three hours to work out what was going on.
Their current album, Nice and Nicely Done, got 9/10 in the NME. They say they are considering dedicating their next album to Ronnie O'Sullivan.
