Total legend Roald Dahl would have been 100 this year. A creator of weird and wonderful kids books, some of his finest characters have a hell of a lot in common with some of today’s biggest rock stars.
Willie Wonka and Jack White:
Jack White’s incredible Third Man Records store and record label has often been compared to Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The two are both eccentric inventors, both pushing the boundaries of their respective fields (confectionary and music). We salute and adore the both of them.
Baron Bomburst and Elton John:
We don’t really need words here, do we? I mean, have you ever seen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’s Baron Bomburst and Elton John in the same room? Case closed.
