Goldie: Born to shine


Goldie: Born to shine – He grew up in care homes to become a pioneer of rave culture and – today – a composer for the Proms. How has he done it?

While foster care deeply damaged Goldie, it also introduced him to breakdancing and the urban scene that he would eventually thrive in. He once recalled: “I remember quite well when I was in institutions, and the only thing I had was 25 other kids from broken families that had nothing and we used to learn breakdancing and go to all-dayers all round the country – it was a big thing in the 1980s – and battle the guys in Nottingham, battle the guys in London, battle them on the dance floor and it was no longer about violence.  Read more>>

    THIS ISN’T HYPERBOLE. He was born Clifford Joseph Price in Walsall; his mother, Margaret, was a Scottish pub singer, and his father, Clement, an itinerant Jamaican, disappeared shortly after he was born. When he was three his mother put him into care, while his half-brothers remained at home. For the rest of his childhood he was bounced between foster carers and children’s homes as, he says, “this kid, Cliff, who no one paid much attention to”.

    He could barely remember his mother, nor did he have any contact with her. “But I knew what she smelled like. And I remember down to the day when the social worker came to take me away. Me and my brother rolled down this hill on a trolley, all the way to the bottom and we fell off and were laughing, and then we went back up the hill, and this car pulled up and a woman got out with a guy and they took me away.” http://linkis.com/gu.com/p/2mkxc/1jMt6
