Soap legend Kevin Kennedy is in town all this week appearing in the musical 'Rock of Ages' in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and we managed to get over there for a chat to him ahead of opening night.

Kevin will be familiar to many as the face of one of soap's most famous characters - 'Coronation Street's Curly Watts. Kevin played the role of the down in his luck Curly for twenty years but as well as acting, he also has devoted much of his life and career to music.

We chatted to Kevin about playing in Johnny Marr's first band, touring Ireland with a showband as well as playing in the likes of Morgan Freeman's blues club in Mississippi, and of course, his time as Curly Watts.
