Justin spoke to Clem Curtis on Saturday, two days before the singer died. Clem is a man I've loved interviewing over the years for my music programmes. He's so down to earth he's even phoned into my show for requests. Even during what turned out to be the last few hours of his life, he wanted to thank his fans. I didn't recognise Clem when I first walked in, but then he smiled that instantly recognisable infectious smile, and it lit up the room. I tried to keep it under wraps, but I couldn't. You give a little and take a lot. I enjoyed every moment of being with The Foundations. Curtis left The Foundations before the release of their best-known hit Build Me Up Buttercup, but later returned to sing with various line-ups.
