What a turn-off! Embarrassed Tokio Myers busted Simon Cowell’s stereo
BRITAIN’S Got Talent winner Tokio Myers hit a real bum note when he broke Simon Cowell’s stereo.
In an exclusive catch-up with GP, this year’s champ told us he was left red-faced during a playback of his album Our Generation, out now.
‘Simon flew me out to LA, I went round his house and blew his speakers. I cranked it up to the loudest volume possible,’ shuddered 33-year-old Tokio.
But the music boss was ‘really cool about it’ — Cowell, 58, has been digging into his pockets ever since. ‘He has allowed me to have a 40-piece string orchestra, record in Abbey Road Studios… “Anything you need, just give me a shout”,’ the pianist said.
Meanwhile, Tokio was tickling the ivories at Tottenham Court Road Tube station yesterday. It was a surprise performance to launch Transport for London and Yamaha’s #Platform88 charity project to provide pianos at stations for passengers to play.
