Ritchie C. 'I notice you mention a 'funny car' in the 'The Great Escape'. Are you into drag racing?' I went once - it was in Ohio. I got out of a limo by the starting line - just as they were revving up. The ground was shaking beneath me and I must have lost half my hearing that day.
Gerry B. 1) Schitzophrenic 2) Detroit was and is a very good area.
Andy Mcmorrin: Don't remember.
Keith Johnson: 'Just picked up Joe Elliotts' 'Down 'n' Outz' CD. Glad he did this - awesome songs - but he sings '3,000 miles From Here' wrong. I's for you's.' I'll ask him about that.
Dennis Goodwin: Nothing planned at the moment.
Ian Moulson: 'Brilliant Page three of the Sun next to voluptuous Roxanne. Fame at last.' Accompanied by acute embarrassment.
Mark: 'Come to Scotland more!' I would, but it's a schlep.
Graham Stark: 'Are you going to write a song about what happened at High Voltage?' Dunno - these things can hang around in your head and pop up anytime.
John Rasile: Clever lad. We're turned a half step down.
Hope Campbell: Wait till he's 15 girl. Keep a handle on him.
Steve Marrington: Two things happened - the first thing was I remembered I was using a loaner guitar (from Gibson) and the second thing was the guy I was walking toward shouted, 'It's not my fault' and I believed him.
Rick L: 2001 ?
Trevor Robson: 'I live in Zambia - will you ever come down here?' Who knows. Maybe I should say no - then something will come up!
Jeff Nielsen: We're trying for early next year.
Daniel Allanson: 'I have posted a link to your song, 'Win it All' on youtube to the forums for Lymphoma.org.to inspire those of us with Hodgkins' Lymphoma and other terrible cancers.' Thanks you.
Rob hadgraft: 'If your from Shrewsbury - how did you end up in Northampton?' Went to Butlins - joine a band from Northampton and moved over. Actually, I'm from Oswestry and I ended up in Connecticut - but that's another story.
Bobby Smith: Didn't even know Luther had a brother.
Ooer Wullie wants to congratulate Big Dave (the teacher) and Roz on their wedding - Willie is best man! Have a great day!
Robert Andrew Miller: High Voltage. Sorry, but as already discussed - I could do nothing bout it.
Keith Nickless wants 'Waterlow' and 'Angel of 8th Avenue' at Union Chapel. 'What do you think of Joe Elliott's new album and his plan for a MTH album in two years time?' Well, Joe has the energy of ten men and the enthusiasm of 20. It's great he's so keen on keeping the old stuff alive. More power to him - not that he needs any!
Roberto: 'Come back to Madrid.'
Yucca Flats: 'I saw pictures of Mick Ronson and Marc Bolan - it looked like they were in a studio. Did they record together?' I remember Bolan popping in and out when we were doing my first solo album in Air Studios. He got Mick to listen to his entire album one night in a small mixing area which is probably where the picture was taken. I remember he was doing a solo for (I think) ELO in Air 1. We were in Air 2 - which I preferred. 'Come to Boston.'
Peter Mason: 'I've got your 'You're Never Alone' CD wit the early slow version of 'Just Another Night'. I'd love to have a crack at playing it, but I can't find the sheet music anywhere - I can't play by ear.' Just sit down and play along with it. I think it's in 'A'. There's only a few chords in it. Persevere!
JoeJoe: Thank You.,
Shon Adkins: Ye.
Nicky: Hey!!!! Noted.
David Zellerford: Noted.
Mike Dobda: Sure - he was a pretty well known actor.
Tracy: Well done - keep at it. It'll pay off in the end.
Steve S: 'Will the Danbury CT benefit be with the Rant Band?' Yup.
Pete: Well Pete, it is a long way and I'm not as young as I use to be, but if there was a decent offer on the table I'd have to consider it. You must remember I have a band to run and that costs - particularly when traversing the globe. I'm grateful for the support I get from down under and if a decent offer materializes, we will look at it.
Note 1: By the way chaps, what's a warm up gig? It's not what some of you seem to think. A warm up gig is manly for the lights and sound. They'll know the set beforehand, but they need a date just to figure stuff out. A warm up gig is not so much for the band- they're ready - it's for the lights and sound and band to come together in any given new situation.
Note 2: See you lot are all asking for different songs and some of them just don't fit into today's set lists. I'd love to accommodate all but a) we'd be ther all night and b) I'd have no voice left.
Note 3: I hear Mary Chapin Carpenter is doing 'Flower' in her set, sometimes. Think she's great.
Larry Butti: Another lover of 'Somewhere'. Says he's surprised so many people don't' know what it is. So am I.
Alice Leslie: I think it's seated. I haven't played there in a long time so I don't know if they'll let you get up and dance.
Paul: Paul says he knows I love Virginia - 'We've got a great outdoor stage you can rock it!'
Peejay: I don't know what the set list is yet. Pretty confusing.
Paul D: Friends are fine.
Dan P: 'Have you ever felt self conscious about your music?' Good question - haven't got an answer.
Gaz: 1) That was then; this is now. 2) Never listen.
Joe S: I just remember fans sitting on the street all day every day outside the Roxy. We dropped by a couple of times to say hello. I remember Cher walked out after we did 'Laugh At Me' and Jack Nicholson was hanging out with the owner upstairs.
David Hancox: Dedications are hit and miss. Sometimes you remember - sometimes there's a lot going on and it gets overlooked by mistake. Sometimes Trudi will remind me just before going on.
Paul Cavani: Just reimbursed for the Rome gig!! Problem solved. That promoter is a good chap - met him in Milan. He was having a great time. Paul says Darrell Bath was up with his band in Largs recently. Glad to know he's still doing it.
Dave Nagy heard my version of 'Ships' in a local restaurant. Soon be musack then.
Kirby Sharpe: 'Ronson could say more with one note than most with a hundred.' And that's what it's all about.
Sorry to those I missed; maybe next time.
