A self-styled driving instructor from Heanor proved he not only has the look of a rock star - but some rock royalty pals of his own.

Tattoo clad Andy Pearson, who set up Drive Like a Rockstar last year, teaches his pupils in a flame emblazoned Ford Fiesta and became friends with Thin Lizzy singer Ricky Warwick through his other life as a hospitality organiser for touring bands. And on Saturday Andy and Ricky enjoyed an aptly titled Thin Lizzy burger at Annie’s Burger Shack in Nottingham while the group tour the UK.

Super fan Andy said: “If only I could go back in time and tell the 14-year-old me who I’d get to know later in life!.”
