To go by his reaction to Imelda May, she has “it” in spades. “I’ve got to have you on the show,” he told her after seeing her play live – and so, a couple of months ago, she duly found herself on Later With Jools Holland, wowing an audience who included Jeff Beck, Elbow, and Roots Manuva. Beck, in fact, made a point of telling Holland that he was only there to see Imelda.
