  1. The sooner they get them released, the sooner we can have another archive release.
  2. Through the too many miles And the too little smiles I still remember you Taxi - Harry Chapin
  3. Poem On The Underground Wall
  4. Blimey! That's a technical question! I believe the existing structure is magnesian limestone, so I assume the new stone is the same.
  5. Itsy Witsy Teenie Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
  6. New stone has started arriving and giant arch shaped structures have been built to support it as the rebuilding takes place. A Planning Permission application has been lodged in respect of widening the road and footpaths and installing new lighting.
  7. An interesting footnote to the story is that his son, Howie Nicol, is a sound engineer who won a BAFTA for his work on The Beatles Anthology documentaries. It is the final irony that Paul McCartney met Howie Nicol during the recording of the Anthology documentary. He told him how much he would like to see Jimmy again and suggested Howie ask Jimmy if he would appear in the programme but the answer was no. What Howie didn't tell McCartney, says one of the people who worked on the documentary, was that Jimmy wants nothing to do with the Beatles. Those 10 days had ruined his life. He wished it had never happened.
  8. Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus people bought 'em The Last Resort - Eagles
  9. Now it seems to me, some fine things have been laid upon your table Desperado
  10. As Julian Dicks retired in 2002 and has never been anywhere near the Olympics I'd guess you're right to wonder about the accuracy of these.
  11. The Hague is probably the most different as it only has five River songs. It also has From Small Things, Jersey Girl and Detroit Medley to add a bit of variety.
  12. Reminds me of seeing Midge Ure at the City Varieties in Leeds. It was a solo tour that was as much about chatting and answering audience questions as about singing. Asked about his musical heroes he talked about Mick Ronson and commented about the fact that that he was really ill. Someone in the audience corrected him to say that Mick had just died, so Midge learned about the death of his hero whilst live on stage. He then played a lovely version of Lady Stardust.
