Want to hear it straight from the Horse's Mouth? Ask your question here.
Mark F: I don't know if I've been nominated. I've never seen it or played on it. Not interested.
Beth Khoury: 'Awesome at the Fillmore. Had a high school reunion of sorts with my friends Gary Norris and Scott McCaughey. What a treat to be dancing with Scott one minute and seeing him play 'Dudes' on stage in the next. Unbelievable evening. BTW, you sounded great, and Holley's a doll!'
Maureen Helm: 'Moe': Thanks for the heads up. I lost contact with Barry years ago. Say Hi to Howard!
David Moore: Still in the works.
Carla Rawson: 'Come to the Midwest!' We're working on it.
Annette Geremia: 'Thanks for the Narrows Fall River show. Blown away - perfect! Inspiration for 'Man Overboard?' There were times when I had literally nothing - actual poverty - not today's so called poverty. I was never out on the streets, but I knew someone who was.
Roger Ellison: Nice one.
Ian: 'Thank you for such a sublime time in San Francisco. Connie and I were front and center. What's next? I'm the gal who made your strap in London - ever wear it?' Nah - I wear the thinnest of thin straps; but I've got yours - beautiful! Thank you!
Ron Ando: 'Thanks for popping into the LA area. Can you say hello to the wife - she'll just crumble!' Hi Andrea, - now start crumbling.
Jeffrey: Yah never know. Sun's out.
Roy Symonds: 'Saw the Galaxy show and really enjoyed it. Do you have an interest in doing a radio show like other artists do?' Nah. Rather write. If I did, though, it would be all 50's.
Tom Flynn: Like I said, New York in September sounds good to me. And thanks for the info - I'll pass it on.
Kevin McD: As above.
George Bender: 'When will you appear in California next?' Well it took four years to get us back this last time - hopefully it will be sooner.
Tony Makowsky: 'After years of waiting and trying to make it happen my brother and I finally got to see you at the Galaxy. Incredible, amazing show, with a great family of fans and well worth the trip from Canada. When are you coming to Canada?' As soon as Canadian promoters figure out what to do. Hey, you got to see LA - makes a change.
Tom Blair: The answer to your question can be found elsewhere in the HM. Glad you enjoyed.
Colum Thornton: Dublin and Belfast have been mentioned recently, but nothing's been set, so it's 50/50.
Benjamin (14): Hi Benjamin - glad you enjoy my stuff! Nothing planned at the moment, but that could change at any time. Keep checking the gig guide on this site.
Paul Sale: Mott did do 'Midnight Lady' on TOTP. I'm not sure why this song or 'Downtown' never made a compilation. I don't bother with that. We just did Birmingham last October, so it'll be a while.
Craig Russell: We are working on doing Cleveland.
Phil Huband: Nope - never did see El Rey's sign (Phil says it's one of the best in LA). 'Whose idea was the 'Man Overboard' cover.' The photographer's and mine. 'Are you actually standing by the bridge?' Yup. 'Was the photograph really taken at night?' Yes, and it was bloody freezing; Andy and Liz York were with us. That's interesting about 'Family Britain 51-57'. Didn't know about this; must get it. Just finished Wyatt Earp by Casey Tefertiller. Extremely factual - almost minute to minute.
Mark F: 'Mick Jones mentions MTH as an influence in 'Rolling Stone'. Have you ever met or worked with any of the Clash folks?' Mick produced 'Short Back 'n' Sides' (one of my solo albums), and the Clash's original drummer played the drums.
Marcus: I think lyrical howlers are great. Some of the Japanese lyrics are hilarious - better than the originals in a mad way.
Jim M.: Glad you think that way.
Johnny Bacardi: No, Ronson never played on AAAB, and he always said that it was his favourite album of mine. Typical.
Pat: I think Classic Rock is a term invented by radio to describe a format consisting of playing the same old tracks over and over and over and over to the great brain washed. Where's the invention or creativity in that? Silly sods.
Dane Spiro: 'And we all live on what just might be.' That's it.
Brian McCauley: I'm so sorry, Brian. Stick it out.
Rob Levay: 'Lucky enough to see the El Rey show - you and the Rant band sounded great. Have not enjoyed any show that much in a long time. Do you remember walking off in Detroit in '70 with MTH?' I do, actually. I threw an upside down firebird at Buff and it split on his cymbals. God knows what that was all about. I was soundly booed and probably deserved it. Forgot what the problem was. Sometimes I think I care too much.' 'Last two records - super.'
Tracy: Joe had two of them made - one for him and one for me. It does get easier, but you have to let it.
John Sutton: You get back commensurate with what you put in. I never bothered with the English end of things. Thought they might need it more than I do.
Seth Purvin: You're having dinner with three people - who would they be. Ali, Churchill 'n' Bob! (That's off the top of my head!)
Annette Geremia: I think it's Robbie and 'Bluebirds'. I'm a big fan of Robbie - very thoughtful, melodic player. Underrated and usually out of tune!! I like 'Bluebirds' too. Thought it was just me.
Verne: I remember standing on the stage at the URIS theatre the first afternoon and there were some wood shavings on the floor around my mike. I saw a broom on the stage right and brought it back center stage to brush the word shavings away. Immediately there was a union flare up; they threatened to stop the show. And I thought, 'How bloody stupid can you be?' But then, it's only a reaction to constant screwing by the rich that unions were born. It's just never sensible.
Sadra S: No - it was about a man who never stood a chance.
Victor: 'Secret Sessions' that's way back. Corky probably wrote the liner notes because it was on his label. It was a lot of fun; a workshop. I never thought of it in terms of being out there for public consumption.
Wilhlem Glavanits: It's about a man who was getting in the way.
Joejo: Told you - September.
John Frawley: Never played with Dave Edmunds, nor with Gary Brooker. I don't think we've ever done 'Silver Dime'.
Matt Parrish: All I was thinking was we've got to get better. I didn't think we were achieving much at the time. It was so busy.
Kerri Frazer: You can plan for NY in September - that's pretty much set. We'll put it up as soon as it's all signed and sealed.
Mick McKenzie: It's a hard one to figure out. We knew we'd do well, but we under estimated it a bit.
Mark Stettor: Thanks, Mark
Mike Costanzo: 23A mentions the first poem I ever wrote, 'The Floods Roll On'. It was great; I'd never done anything like that before. I lost it somewhere along the road. I sent some stuff to a publisher when I first joined MTH but whatever I'd done was rejected so I just thought sod 'em. I read Kerouac's book (at the right time) but his other books didn't grab me. I met Ginsberg a few of time. Nice man; gave me a poem.
Mark F.: MTH did 'Don Kirshner' (as did Mick Ronson and me later on). MTH did 'Midnight Special'.
Rick Lake: Sorry, Rick - we don't do that. Glad you enjoyed the Galaxy.
Tim Kearns: We saw it on TV. It was mass coverage here. What a bloody nightmare. This planet's random. Out thoughts are with you.
Alan Hills: Nice one, Alan, but I've forgotten which thing it was.
Kevin Carlini: Denny Laine and I have never played together, but Steve Holley (the Rant Band Drummer) was with Denny for quite some time.
That's all for now. Sorry if I've missed some.
