Magician Ben Taylor, known as the Magic Mod, met TV’s Paul Daniels after a magic show in Burgess Hill.
Ben said: “He agreed to meet me after his show. I was amazed, he said ,‘Oh your the Magic Mod I’ve been hearing about’. Unreal.” The magician, from Gloucester Road, Tilgate, also shared the stage with some of his heroes from the Mod era at the Tonic Festival, in Portsmouth, on October 12. Musicians he met included Terry Hall from The Specials, ex-Oasis guitarist Bonehead and Bruce Foxton from The Jam.
