“At Smash Hits in the mid-80s, he helped invent a cartoon fantasy world in which everyone interviewed seemed to exhibit the same slapstick characteristics. All his subjects — Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Bucks Fizz, John Lydon –– were delightfully over-exaggerated, as mischievous and eccentric as their interrogator.”
