Owen Paul Biography

Owen Paul (born Owen Paul McGee, 1 May 1962), is a Scottish singer, best known in the UK for his 1986 No. 3 hit single, "My Favourite Waste of Time", a cover version of a song that was originally written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Marshall Crenshaw. The track featured an appearance from future Thunder bass player, Mark 'Snake' Luckhurst.

As a youngster Paul was taken on as an apprentice with the football club Celtic, but after hearing the Sex Pistols he decided to pursue a career in music. In 1989 he produced Japanese rock band Buck-Tick's album Taboo. After releasing a couple of singles he had a fall-out with his record label resulting in him leaving the music industry for 15 years.

Paul has made two television appearances to forget: the first was on the BBC live programme Pebble Mill, when he was meant to mime to "My Favourite Waste of Time", but due to a technician's mistake, he missed his cue. The second came much later, as the unfortunate guest of a neighbour to The Osbournes, when as a result of playing music in a neighbouring garden, he provoked Ozzy and the rest of his dysfunctional family into throwing food.
