Spotting Brighton’s most well-loved Australian rock star as he makes his way around town has become something of a pastime for city residents.

But a selfie with Nick Cave which has gone viral was taken by a man who didn’t even know who he was.

When New Zealand man James Malcolm, 21, saw fans asking the Bad Seeds singer to sign their t-shirts, he said he didn’t want to feel left out, so he took a selfie with him.

And to find out who he was, he posted it on Twitter and asked his followers.

Shortly afterwards, he got on a flight, and turned on his phone’s airplane mode – and seven hours later, his tweet had thousands of likes and retweets.

When asked why he took the photo despite not knowing who Nick Cave was, he said: “Everyone else was asking him for a photo and I wanted to find out who he was in a fun/cheeky way + I felt left out + I luv celebs.”
