Exhibit 7: Gary's Glitter Bar - Leader Of The Snack (1994)
YY: I was an editor at a publishing house in Covent Garden when Gary Glitter opened The Glitter Bar on the corner of Leicester Square. If I remember rightly, it was a tiny little sandwich bar opposite the slightly more impressive Planet Hollywood. It went out of business very quickly. For some strange reason I kept the bag my sandwich came in and pinned it on my studio wall. Perhaps I thought it might one day become a valuable piece of memorabilia of one of the our great cultural icons. Well that didn't work out, did it.
