Paul Heaton praised for 'lovely' Q Magazine gesture

Singer Paul Heaton has been praised for his generosity, after the final editor of Q Magazine revealed how he supported staff when the publication closed.

Writing on Twitter, Ted Kessler explained how the star made a large donation to the magazine, which was shared amongst 40 staff.

"It really was the most amazingly kind, selfless, generous act," he said. "For some, it meant a bill could be paid."

In thanks, the staff commissioned a Q Award to honour the star.

Receiving it on Friday, Heaton thanked the magazine for its support and the "kind words" about his donation.

"It was just meant to make sure people weren't left on their arse," he said in a video posted to Twitter.

From the Housemartins to the Beautiful South he always seemed to remain a down to earth bloke, a talented songwriter, and all round decent human being.

Now That’s What I Call Quite Good!

Yeah he's one of my favourites in music, he just seemes sound.

I picked up London 0 Hull 4 on vinyl in Clarendon Park a few years back. Great album.

I've always liked the Beautiful South, and it's my era sort of thing, but given the Housemartins were in the 80's I had to do some backtracking but enjoy their stuff too.
