British singer/songwriter Badly Drawn Boy insists he will never allow fame to change him after being inspired by late The Clash star Joe Strummer. Just as the SILENT SIGH star, real name DAMON GOUGH, was finding success as a musician in 2000, he was humbled by Strummer's unassuming personality - despite the rocker's status as a punk icon. Gough tells London's Time Out magazine, "I met him at the Q awards in 2000, when he received the Lifetime Achievement Award. "He was so nice to me, and said he was proud of me for making good music. "I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He was so gracious accepting his award and just said, 'This is great, thanks for that.' "It taught me a valuable lesson."
