"My mom's a huge northern soul fan," the "Love Me Again" singer explains. "What northern soul is, in the UK, it can only be explained as a rave scene almost—a scene of people that were going to these events and dancing to b-sides of Motown music. That led my mom to listening to a lot of Motown. With myself, getting up for school everyday and getting played that, it was like, 'Oh, it's my mom's music' and I denied that I liked it almost because it wasn't cool in front of my friends who listened to house music."

WOLFF: In 1979 you directed your first feature film QUADROPHENIA based on the Who's rock opera. This a favourite film with a number of people. It broke new ground. It has a realistic feel but is a fictional story, though based on real events. The audience may be forgiven for feeling they are a member of the Mod gang just outside the frame, how did you achieve this effect?
RODDAM: I could write a book on this one! But this was achieved by having a core group of 100 young actors – 8 of them who became the main cast, 20 of them who became ‘special extras’ and the rest extras. By training them and introducing them all to each other, they took on an authenticity that transmitted to the viewer. I also used wide angle lenses, so that the foreground, middle ground and background were all in focus. This meant that even the extras had to know their place amongst the group and their status with each other. The middle ground had to be interesting, and the foreground had to be strong. All the camera movements are motivated by the action.

She was born Jamesetta Hawkins. By age five she was known as a gospel prodigy; at the time of her death she’d mastered R&B, jazz, blues, and rock. As she began her professional singing career the name Jamesetta was inverted to Etta James. One of her early hits that soared to number two on the R&B charts – “All I Could Do Was Cry” – was co-written by Motown founder Berry Gordy before there was Motown. Chess Records producer Ralph Bass remembered about the recording session:
“One take and Etta was crying her eyes out for real. The band wanted her to do it over. I told them ‘Forget it’…how much more soul could I get from a singer?”
Sheila said: “I always thought of myself as a mod. I was only 14 and still at school so wasn’t really part of the group but I liked the way they dressed, their music and Cathy is the same way.”
Sheila spent most of her youth in Ardleigh Green, Hornchurch, attending Romford County High School, now Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls, in Brentwood Road, Romford. It was then Sheila started to develop her love for writing.
