Charlie Sims

I was born in Norfolk but moved around a lot due to my Dad’s occupation before finally settling in the North East of England. Since I had to make new friends every couple of months, I’ve never had a problem talking to people.

As a teenager I discovered Bon Jovi and from there discovered Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Warrant, Europe and my personal favourite, Poison! I fell in love with the bright lights and stories of the infamous Sunset Strip but only in recent years have I had the confidence to do anything about it. I have developed my own 80’s inspired style, listen to the music without feeling ashamed and going to events to make friends with like minded people.

My first gig was Bon Jovi in 2011 and my last gig was Rammstein back in July. I love all rock but glam has stolen my heart.

I hope to one day see Poison live, interview Steven Tyler, have a photoshoot with Nikki Sixx and have some boots to rival Olli Herman’s!
