Chris Evans Promotes Tony Ashton's Paintings: During the last couple of years, DJ Chris Evans and Tony Ashton became good friends. Ashton became a regular at the set of TFI Friday. Evans, a fan of Ashton's artwork, recently launched the "Well Hung" art gallery in London's Notting Hill. The London newspaper, The Evening Standard, wrote on 2 December the following:
The inspiration behind his decision to rent the Notting Hill gallery is struggling artist Tony Ashton. "I think he is brilliant. But he has never been able to sell his paintings to anyone else, so I decided to exhibit his work."
This move on Evans part was very good exposure in London for Ashton's paintings and hopefully introduced many art buyers to his work.
The news item in the Evening Standard however, was quite disturbing to me. By referring to him as "struggling artist Tony Ashton" without any mention of his credentials as a musician and a veteran UK rock star, shows either complete ignorance on the part of the "Standard" or just intentional refusal to acknowledge the man's past achievements.
