Andy Scott joins VanCompare.com to offer foxy van insurance quotes
Musician Andy Scott teams up with van insurance comparison site, VanCompare.com, in two new TV adverts. Van Compare find UK van drivers cheap van insurance quotes from over 20 providers.
The advertisements feature Andy rocking out to classic Sweet tracks, ‘Fox on the Run’ and ‘Love is like Oxygen’. ‘Fox on the Run’ was The Sweet’s biggest selling hit back in March 1975, and was released worldwide to widespread acclaim. The Sweet’s first self written and produced single, ‘Fox on the Run’, reached number one in Germany and Australia, number two in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, and number five in the US.
Van Compare’s owner and chairman, Paul Steffens, has been a fan of The Sweet since the age of 10 and by the age of 42 Andy had played 2 gigs at his home. Paul and Andy’s friendship quickly evolved and resulted in the idea of Andy fronting Van Compare’s first television advertising campaign.
An undoubted highlight in the music career of Andy Scott came in 1967, when playing with his then band The Silverstones. Having won the famed TV show Opportunity Knocks five weeks running, they were bestowed the honour of supporting the great Jimi Hendrix. Unfortunately The Silverstones disbanded shortly after, paving the way for Andy to join The Sweet. The rest, as they say, is history.
The Sweet are still going strong, with Andy on guitar captivating fans and keeping audiences hungry for more. Having completed over 100 gigs in the past year, The Sweet show no sign of slowing down, with their hits standing the test of time.
