Speeding With Spedding

Jonh Ingham, Sounds, 20 September 1975

DEEP IN the bowels of Television Centre, Chris Spedding whiles away the hours in a dressing room, waiting for those few minutes on TOTP when 10 million people will see and hear him promoting 'Motorbikin'', his first hit record, ever closer to that magic Number One. In the hall outside, members of Pilot clatter a Frisbee off the doors and walls; inside, opposite an array of leather jackets and a Wild Ones motorcycle cap Spedding merely sits and waits. And waits. And Waits.
