CAMDEN is to get its first 'Rock n Roll Mayor'. Labour councillor Jonathan Simpson is due to be confirmed as the borough's first citizen at a ceremony at the Town Hall tomorrow night. His theme for the next 12 months will be Camden's famous musical heritage and he has chosen the Roundhouse Trust, which helps youngsters access the arts, as the Mayor's charity. His Mayoress will be broadcaster and friend Amy Lame (pictured), while the London Gay Men's Chorus will perform at the ceremony.
Labour councillor Abdul Quadir is due to serve as deputy mayor.
