A singer-songwriter who performs as the "Soho Hobo," Arnold has enlisted friends and fellow performers including Cumberbatch, actor-comedian Stephen Fry and Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who, to try to reverse the closure.Arnold has Soho blood in his veins. Arnold has seen many music venues close over the years, but losing Madame Jojo's was the last straw. Soho has also long been synonymous with sex. Porn publisher Paul Raymond, dubbed the "King of Soho," opened London's first strip club here in 1958 . Raymond Revuebar was considered classy, but by the 1970s sleaze was spreading, and Soho had 140 unlicensed sex shops.Soho Estates says its redevelopment will include at least two nightclubs, including a reincarnation of the lost nightclub.Arnold, Cumberbatch and the club's other supporters aren't convinced.Despite the changes, Hardcastle and Arnold both say Soho is still a surprisingly close-knit area.
