Burns Refused To Sell Albums He Hates
Singer PETE BURNS is a grumpy worker - he refused to sell albums by bands he didn't like during his years at a record store.
The former Dead or Alive star manned the counter at the legendary Probe Records in Liverpool, England before shooting to fame with his hit song You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) in 1984.
And he wasn't the only one celebrating when his career took off - customers at Probe were often stunned by his refusal to sell them certain albums.
Music agent Mitch Poole, who shopped in the store as a youngster, tells the Liverpool Echo, "I used to hate getting served by Pete Burns, who terrified the life out of me in those black contact lenses. He would ask 'What do you want to buy that for? It's c**p'! I once remember him refusing to sell to my mate How Soon Is Now? by The Smiths, because he hated it so much."
