What's puzzling about the man looming out the crowd and attacking Mick Hucknall during a gig in Cuba is: what the hell was Hucknall doing playing a gig in Cuba?

Mick's manager Ian Grenfell is puzzled, too, but for different reasons:

It was bizarre. What is so worrying is that we don't know what the man's intentions were. He was a Cuban American in his twenties and he stormed the stage and tried to attack Mick.”

He added: "Police say the man was stoned but what is unclear is why he took exception to Mick."

It must be difficult trying to isolate what the precise reason was out a potential list of son many reasons someone might have for punching the man responsible for every track on Stars.
