Drummer Simon Wolstencroft, dubbed 'Funky Si' by Johnny Marr has worked with Ian Brown, John Squire, Andy Rourke, Terry Hall, Jez Kerr, Neville Staple and Craig Gannon to name but a few. He was the drummer in The Fall for 11 years. Every week he brings you tales of his exploits from more than 40 years on the Manchester music scene and beyond. His memoir 'You Can Drum But You Can't Hide' was published to wide acclaim in 2014. He says the inspiration for the book came when a contestant on Mastermind correctly identified him as the original drummer of The Smiths.
