I was worried that I might be listening to too much old music, so I made a graph of my iTunes play count data, mapping numbers of plays against the year. Sure, there’s a peak around the early 80s, but the bulk of what I’ve listened to most often is still from the last few years. Phew.
Limited guitar technique.
Better at guitar than piano – but knows it (“Oh Steinway, I’m not worthy”)
Shy and sweetly self-deprecating.
I can’t make out most of the lyrics.
I could listen to that voice all night.
(This is a continuation of random addled thoughts in Part 1)
It’s a funny thing, going from fan-boy to band-member. It’s even funnier to be dragged out of nearly 10 years of musical inactivity to tour with a band that’s retiring after 30 years.. and, what’s more, in support of an act that’s showing no sign of retiring after 30 years. What does that mean?
