They're no doubt used to travelling in slightly more salubrious vehicles, but Public Enemy were forced to bunk into the back of a fan's car the other night.

The hip-hop legends were supporting The Prodigy at Sheffield Arena on Saturday night, but had been doing a signing in a local record shop beforehand. 

When a taxi that was booked to bring them to the venue failed to turn up, it was left to fan Kevin Wells - a photographer who was last in the queue to get stuff signed - to ferry Chuck D, Flavor Flav and members of their entourage there in his Ford Focus.

He told The Guardian: "It was very, very surreal. We all walked to the car – Flavor Flav, Chuck D and two of their entourage – and they all just piled in. I’m local to Sheffield so I know all the back streets to get there pretty sharpish so I didn’t feel too tense. I knew I could get them there in time.”

He added: "They were saying how amazed they were in England, how close together all the cities are, because they are used to travelling in the States. They said they love that – though weren’t so big on the weather in England.”

In what must have been a pretty surreal moment, he also said that when Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' came on his car stereo, they shouted 'Bo Rap! Wayne's World!' and started headbanging. "I kept looking in the rear view mirror and I could see Flavor Flav with his sunglasses on and his big clock and I couldn’t believe it," he said.
