Chris Blackwell from London started Island Records 50 years ago for only £1000 and it’s still going strong. To celebrate the iconic Grace Jones performed at the anniversary event in London.
The night included rhythm specialist Sly and Robbie, Marcia Griffith, Rita Marley and Erica Newell who all helped kicked the night off in Shepherds Bush.
However while performing ‘Pull up to my Bumper’ Grace turned around and showed her fishnet cover bumper to the audience !!! I know, I know but she’s got a sense of humour LMAO!!!!
Backstage Kid Creole bumped into Grace
The 61 year old said to Flyer: ‘Thank you for the compliments but I have some great designers behind me. My outfit was designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier and my head piece by hat designer Philip Tracey’.
New comers Tinchy Strider and VV Brown also performed on the opening night. Sade Says Your dress hurts my eyes VV!
