However, during his early days, he had worked as a ticket scalper in South London. Once in an interview, Anderson told:
“I loved it. A wealth of experience, I earned a lot of money out of it, but that was all I got out of it. Artistically, there was nothing in that for me, so I’d always wanted to do something else. I always wanted to be a frontman in a band, not a footballer. Not an actor. Certainly not a policeman or a fireman. I wanted to be a lead singer. Nothing else."
