    Why is is that someone who was sh1t in the 80's is suddenly cool now?

    Does that mean Im due to become cool in about 12 months time? ;)

    You should never meet your heroes they always let you down.

    He just sounds like a bitter and grumpy old twit who has accepted the Glastonbury gig without realising, or maybe only just, that he is the 'novelty' artist on the bill. A space usually filled with the likes of Rolf Harris etc.

    Not all of them - I met two of my heroes in 2006 and they were great. One was as shy as he'd always been, the other as mad and friendly as he was reported to be. Probably not many on here will know who they are - John Lees and Woolly Wolstenholme of Barclay James Harvest.

    I remember when Viz interviewed shaky, his favorite colour was blue and his favorite food was clams and gravy.

    The question is, why were you reading that?

    Ok then, maybe not all of them then.
    In fact I had a very favourable encounters of my own with Steve Hackett(prv.Genesis) and on another occasion, Mike Heron(The Incredible String Band). Both lovely chaps.:biggrin:

    If you read the story he comes across as a bit of an peanut as well. Still that could just be journalistic spin.

    One can see why he'd like to be known for more than just the 80's teeny bop pop idol. It was nearly 30 years ago and I'll bet every other interview tries the nostaglia line rather than focusing on his career from then until now.

    I hear that Paul Young, from the same era, HATES the song 'Toast' that he recorded with 'The Street Band' just prior to his solo fame.
    To add insult to injury, in America where 'Toast' was a hit, Mr. Young will still gets audiences shouting requests and throwing 'live' toast on stage in homage. He can get quite huffy apparently.

    I was quite taken aback by that report, he may well have moved on in his career and taken a different direction in what he performs but the likes of the Julie lady helped to make him in the first place and he should acknowledge that fact!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Quite amazing the trivia that 'pops up' now and again.:smile:

    Well, he appeared to be much more accommodating of the interviewer than in the one from The Mirror!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
