Not wrong at all jdp, I skip Hamburg Song, Try Again and He Used To Be A Lovely Boy as I have to be depressed to listen to them, and I'm not depressed atm.
Does anyone else feel the absence of Stop For A Minute? I always loved it!
Most of the websites just mention Gary as songwriter and give Tim no credit, which is not fair.
Around the time of the Strangeland promo trail, Tim mentioned that he had written a song called Valentine, which he wanted a female vocalist to guest on. (I believe it is written as a conversation between a man and a woman). Richard mentioned both Florence Welch and Lily Allen as people he would like to work with.
Did they ever record this? I ...
I also found the implication that all these silly whining women should put up and shut up quite offensive. Rock stars' wives are entitled to spend time with their husbands, just like everybody else. Phil Collins seems to treat his ex-wives and all his children like so much collateral damage. If he had spent more time at home ...
Interesting discussion, but personally I want to feel my age and I want music and musicians that reflect that. There's no shame in growing up. I don't want to see 30 something men with families falling out of clubs, going on about drinking and writing about how great it is. I have grown out of unrequited love ...
Apparently Lily has said of her version of the song: ' I can't listen to it, it's too shrill'
This actually made me quite cross. It was almost as if she was giving in to the haters and disowning her version. If it's out there with your name on it, be proud of it!
H&F all the way. It's the album that made me notice them, and the album that I feel in love with.
My problem with UTIS is the same problem that I have with Back To Black , for example. People always say that those are great albums, but they forget that the artists had to live it to write it. I've been reading Mitch ...
Goodness me guys, you'll be reading the news next!
I've seen more of you in the last two months than I have in the last two years, which is strange for a band which has 'split up' is it not?!
The whole of Top of the Pops during the Sixties and Seventies was done using backing tracks and the artists used to have ...
Just caught the end of it. It was nice to see Jesse back from paternity leave. They got a good reaction and it was nice to see Tom smiling and mouthing: 'Thank you' at the end.
I believe that Paul has been off sick recently and this was his first day back?
Some of our non UK members might not know who Paul O'Grady ...
I also think it is nice that we have seen them grow as people, as we ourselves have grown as people over the last 10 years. We have seen this the most with Tom , from being the unhappy and troubled young man who tried to solve his problems by drowning them out with partying, to the thoughtful and contented person we see before us today. ...
