DIARY: Moonlighting to a completely different beat

Hot on the bell-decorated heels of last week’s story that Morris dancing is a favoured pastime of financial PR types, comes more news of hidden talent in the business.

Hot on the bell-decorated heels of last week’s story that Morris dancing

is a favoured pastime of financial PR types, comes more news of hidden

talent in the business.



Head of things international at GCI, Adrian Wheeler is down as the live

entertainment at a Christmas party for 300 bikers at the courier company

Canon later this month.



For despite his ‘intellectuel torture’ exterior, Wheeler, it appears,

can be better described as PR’s answer to Keith Moon, playing a leading

role for the past six years in the band Easy Money as he belts out cover

versions of Honky Tonk Woman, Cocaine and I Knew the Bride on his kit.



Wheeler says the band, which enjoys an occasional appearance from

independent IT PR consultant Mark Riminton on bass, injects a shot of

realism into the otherwise surreal world of PR. ‘It brings me back down

to earth,’ insists the PR industry’s wild man of rock, while fending off

another teenage groupie.



Easy Money is available for weddings, funerals and also barmitzvahs.
