Asked by press-types how it came to FRUITION, James said: "That's a very good question. I met him at four in the morning at an Italian MTV EMA party.
"He was very good on the pool table, that's the first thing I noticed.
He was a lovely guy but I've seen him and his manager at other different points along the way and became more and more friendly. 

"They were in a spot for this show where they needed a guitar player and it was kind of a 'hey do you fancy doing it?"
