24 Friday, 23 October 2009 London Lite And this is a Braille message for the blind Jokebox......... Fast talkAn instant interview with... Armin vAn Buuren THE 32-year-old Dutch DJ is consistently voted the worlds No1 and his radio show A State Of Trance has 30 million weekly listeners worldwide. London or Amsterdam? I have an office in Amsterdam, but I have to say London for the buzz. Five-star dining or pizza and burgers? Some days I fancy a burger and others Ill go to Oxo Tower or Zilli Fish if in London. Commercial success or critical acclaim? Every DJ wants to be cool, but its also important to be successful. The bigger the crowd, the more positive you feel about yourself. Paul van Dyk or Tisto? Oh, that is mean of you. I cant decide. I am a fan of both of them. Minimal or electro? Its interesting because trance has evolved and borrowed elements of both these styles. Stadium gigs or intimate clubs? Ah, thats like asking if I want the steak or the fish. I like both. X-ray vision or a big pair of wings? When I DJ and a big tune drops, I often spread my arms wide so Ill go for wings. Great music should elevate you. 24 or The Wire? Both are excellent, but Ill say 24 as I made a track for Season Four called The Longest Day. Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland (right) is a powerful character. Armin plays the Top 100 DJs Awards party at Ministry next Wednesday. Scott ManSon faulty lock May have cauSed father-of-twoS fatal Slip A BODYBUILDER died after the weights he was lifting slipped and smashed into his face. Tony Leigh -- touted as one of Britains toughest men -- was in inten- sive care for six days after being fatally injured at a gym in Tilbury, Essex. A probe has been launched by health and safety officials who believe a faulty locking mechanism on a weights machine could be to blame. His heartbroken widow Angie, 39, said: It has been a terrible time and its been so hard to talk about what happened. Coming to terms with how it happened is so difficult. We are devastated. Mr Leigh, 47, from Sittingbourne, Kent, left the Army to work as a bodyguard for the Dubai royal family and had run a gym with his wife in Whitstable. The father of two, nicknamed Manchester Tony, was mentioned in a book by East End gangster Ronnie Kray called Hard B*****ds 2. He came second in the south east heat of Britains Strongest Man in 2005. Devastated friend Matt Jones said: You never expect anything as serious as that to happen from a gym accident. There is a lot of disbelief at the moment. He was a really big-hearted guy.
