Rolf Harris keen to work with younger stars
Rolf Harris could be about to follow his collaboration with Fender Telecaster player Rick Parfitt by working with other music stars.
The Australian entertainer is teaming up with Status Quo's electric guitar player on a new seasonal record called Christmas in the Sun.
But Rolf has now revealed that Dizzee Rascal has also expressed an interest in working with him at some point.
The veteran entertainer added that he has also discussed a possible collaboration with The Chemical Brothers, but said they have not yet found the time to do it.
Rolf told News Shopper: "The nice thing about working with new bands is that it keeps you feeling young."
However, he expressed concern that many young acts, such as those who emerge from The X Factor, are not getting enough time to learn their craft, as they are thrust into instant stardom without serving an apprenticeship.
This, he said, can be a valuable way of teaching performers how to develop a rapport with an audience.Posted on 2 Dec 2009 17:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
