first_img2 Each week, a leading musician takes our Starting XI Q&A. This week, it’s West Ham fan Jeff Turner, of Cockney Rejects fame…Who would be the most rock ‘n’ roll signing your club could make?Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I love his arrogance. He’s good and he knows it.If your club was a song or a lyric, what would it be? Bomber by Motörhead. Hard, fast and unrelenting.Which football stadium would you most like to play a gig at (that’s not your club’s home ground)? Camp Nou. It’s the biggest and best for me.Which footballer has the most potential to be a rock star?Neymar. He has the look, the skill and all round star quality.Brit award or Premier League trophy? Would have to be the Premier League trophy. I don’t care at all for the Brits.When you were a kid, which football and music posters did you have on your wall?I had West Ham squad posters, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano and Led Zeppelin.Elvis was the king of rock ‘n’ roll, Michael Jackson the king of pop… Who’s the king of football? Messi is the king for me. The most naturally talented footballer I have ever seen. A true legend.If you were in charge of your club’s dressing room stereo, what tunes would you put on before a big game and why? Would have to be Sex Pistols and Famines. Pure adrenaline-pumping mayhem.Which signing got you most excited and which player’s departure broke your heart?Most exciting for me was Carlos Tevez – totally out of the blue, so unexpected. I was most gutted by Rio Ferdinand’s departure. He was our future, we could have built a great team around him.Which footballer would you refuse complimentary tickets to one of your gigs? Frank Lampard junior for obvious reasons, ha ha.What’s the best/worst football song ever recorded? Best football song is Back home (1970 England World Cup song).Worst – Diamond Lights (Hoddle and Waddle!).Cockney Rejects have recorded a single to mark West Ham United moving from Upton Park. “Goodbye Upton Park” will be released through Cadiz Music on Tuesday 10 May, the date of the last home game. The video for the song can be seen here.
