VAMPI-AH If you’ve listened to

If you’ve listened to Bono’s acceptance speech at the Brits you may have noticed him callling Chris Blackwell (founder of Island records) a ‘vampire’ in a Jamaican accent. In case you didn’t know… ‘Vampire’ is a song by the great Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry… who was convinced Blackwell was a bloodsucking fiend: “You know, that Chris Blackwell disgusts me, makes me want to vomit. He invited me to the opening of the Compass Point studio in Nassau and there I saw him drink the blood of a freshly killed chicken.” So now you know.
