Josh Madden is known to some as the older brother of Good Charlotte's Joel and Benji Madden, but he's also a stylist and a DJ. Last night at the Gramercy Theatre, he spun a set during Ben Sherman's Very Important Plectrum (VIP) initiative, which supported Life Beat. In between performances by Graffiti6 and Talib Kweli, we caught up with Josh to talk about all things British! It was a Ben Sherman event, after all.

Favorite Beatle: "Probably George Harrison, because he wrote I Got My Mind Set on You. 

Favorite Royal: "I don't want to say the one that dressed up badly for Halloween. I would always vote for Princess Diana."

Favorite bridge in London: "London Bridge. "

Favorite Brit: "That's tough. There's so many good ones. Probably my friend Frank Carter."

Favorite Britney: "Spears. "She's killing it right now. Have you heard the Nicki Minaj remix of Till The World Ends with Ke$ha? It's so crucial!"
