DYNAMO: HERO OF THE STREETS

The Irish Independent has produced a very nice profile of Dynamo aka Steven Frayne in which he talks about the success of DynamoTV and those that influenced him.

“Paul Daniels was a gangsta! He’s still a legend,” he explains, reclining in a booth in London’s Met Bar, about 30 minutes before he’s due to perform there. “He just didn’t know when to retire, that was the problem. He could’ve left on top, but you get stuck into this and you don’t ever want to lose it. People like Paul Daniels showed me what you can achieve by following magic. He was a national celebrity. So if he can do it, why can’t I?”

“I’m inspired by genuine pickpockets. Not people who do it for entertainment: people who genuinely rob you! There’s a guy, Apollo Robbins, who stole guns from the holsters of the Secret Service agents guarding ex-President Jimmy Carter. He does it for entertainment now, but he’s the real deal. He’s a bit of an enigma.”
