Hucknall attacked on stage
Simply Red star Mick Hucknall has been attacked on stage by a
crazed fan. The flame-haired singer was left terrified when a
man - believed to have been under the influence of drugs -
jumped onto the stage during a concert in Cuba and tried to
Mick bravely defended himself by pushing his attacker into the
orchestra pit, before telling the audience: "Thank you, good
night. That is the end of the show."
Mick's manager, Ian Grenfell, told Britain's The Sun
newspaper: "It was bizarre. What is so worrying is that we
don't know what the man's intentions were. He was a Cuban
American in his 20s and he stormed the stage and tried to
attack Mick. "Police say the man was stoned but what is
unclear is why he took exception to Mick."
Last month, Mick confessed he got fat after getting bored with
bedding lots of different women. The red-haired lothario - who
has dated Martine McCutcheon, Catherine Zeta-Jones and glamour
girl Alicia Douvall - claims he turned to alcohol when
sleeping around lost its appeal. But the singer soon cut down
on his drinking when he realised he was putting on weight. He
admitted: "I got bored with sleeping with lots of different
women - bored with the challenge of it. "Then I started
getting drunk instead, but that just makes you fat."
