Want to hear it straight from the Horse's Mouth? Ask your question here.
Stano: 'Did MTH ever appear in Blackpool with Max Wall?' We toured with Max from the top to the bottom - whether that included Blackpool has long left my memory.
Bucks Burnett: 'Since 1992 Dallas had a cool two store indie shop called CD World. Cool shop - great CDs, DVDs plus a selection of local bands (important!). This Saturday, they closed both shops. I spoke to the owner and he said - people get their music from computers these days. It's time to take the situation seriously - support your local music and book stores - if you have any left to support! I buy the occasional CD off Amazon - it's a great bargain - but in a town like Dallas (2 million) - you'd think more record store would be open. Go out and buy a CD from a real store. They need it badly!'
Joe Payne: 'I'm amazed how knowledgeable and loyal your fans are. You said often that Ronno would invite fans in for a cup of tea. Your site offers the same opportunity. Reading new posting son a Sunday morning with a coffee and a smoke makes the day go better.' Thank you, Joe.
Patrik Hanson: 'Schizophrenic' was originally started in London, but I didn't like the way it was going, so we moved back to NYC.
Chris wants background on 'Boy'. It was several images laced together - not one - as has often been said.
Bucks Burnett's new website: www.The DemoCats.com now up 'n' running. Mmmmmmm…Up 'n' Running - sounds like a song.
Doug Moss: We've got something. How it will come out is not decided yet.
Gerry Fae Glasgow: Yes, I have met Paul Carrack; great artist and a very nice man. Seems to operate on his own terms, ala Robert Plant. I suppose I'm a bit like that. By the way, there's photos of Robert and me on his web site; really good ones, too. But getting back to Paul - great writer too. Enjoy!!
Anthony Caminiti: 'Just went to 'We Will Rock You' the musical by Queen and Ben Elton. One part shows images of great musicians who died young - I was very pleased to see them pay homage to Mick Ronson.' Good show that. Great sound.
Andrew Field: It was only AAAB, no others were demoed. In fact, that was the start of AAAB. The Cale stuff's somewhere, but I don't know where. Ronno didn't walk from AAAB (AAAB was his favourite IH album, funnily enough). His stupid manager made it virtually impossible - both financially and psychologically. 'When did you realize you could make a living from music as a career?' The mid-nineties. In the 80's I was mainly trying to find out where I was going.
Hot tub Mike: MTH is different to me. There are a lot of people involved.
Jeff: Happy belated Birthday. Weather perfect! Couldn't be better.
Bill McCue is raving bout Pete Best's new album. 'Not a bad song on it.' It's called 'Hayman's Green'.
David Parry: 'My son, Andrew(17) just started a songwriters course at the British Institute of Modern Music. Any advice?' I think writing is an individual thing - it comes from an individual's mind with an individual personality. It cannot be taught. I guess it can be guided in the early stages, but don't let them mess him up. It's a very solitary pursuit - there's a lot of rejection and misery involved. Above all, one word - desire. Of course I can only give you my experience. Everybody does it differently - lot of success with co-writes out there. It's also nice if there's a grain of truth involved.
John Schiefer: 'Keep looking everywhere and you are not performing.' Well John, this is what a lot of people think - you're not performing, therefore you aren't being. What I'm dong is creating, and that's much more important to me than performing. Performing is repeating yourself every night. Creating is so much more exciting. Plus, I don't have to deal with the lousy airports!
Steve H.: Not me. Never worked in Birmingham.
Henry Parkman: We'll be there at some point.
Campin Patty: 'Hope recording going well (it is). I would like 'Nothin' for Xmas' as a bonus track. 'Guiding Light' my current favourite. Can you give any insight?' That would be in the spiritual answers department.
Bjorn Berry: 'Since 40 years I've had two idols in music - the other one is Bowie. I've seen him live but I haven't seen you live and I and my family must do that. Where can I find your schedule?' There isn't one yet; I'm making a record. Keep checking this website; we'll keep you posted.
Gary Willard: I remember Swingos; can't remember the party.
Cina Jeam-Louis: Sorry, we don't do that.
Peter Jordan: 'Do you have a 'I wish I'd written that?' For me, it's the last verse of 'Shades Off' which always makes an impact when I quote it.' Now and again, but not often.
Finally, I'd just like to say - I like leading an uncomplicated life. When people try to complicate matters - I'm on me bike!
