Norman Cook, on his real name Quentin Cook, is 44 years old and started his music career as bassist of popular indie guitar band The Housemartins, but was already DJ-ing and producing dance music on the side.

At the London Ivor Novello Awards, Norman Cook said, "To everyone whose songs I've re-mixed, sampled or stolen or been in a band with, I would like to say thank you."
