Re: Springsteen

This needs to circulate (hope you don't mind, Frank).
The Arkells playing 'stump Frank' with Springsteen covers. Does well. No teleprompter!

Re: Interviews

I only got to listen to the Fresh Air interview with Bruce today. There have been a lot of interviews recently, but this is a particularly good one. For anyone interested, here is a link to the interview that eleanordc was referring to. http://www.npr.org/2016/10/05/496639696/bruce-springsteen-on-je...

Re: Joe Pug

Wanting to spread the word on Joe Pug's excellent podcast series, "The working songwriter".
This episode has him chatting with Hayes Carll. Many references to TVZ, Guy Clark, Joe Ely etc.

CFF review

Some self promotion. A UK website has recently started publishing my live reviews.
As if I needed an excuse to go to more gigs!
There's an FT one there too (move down a bit).

Re: Frank for Roskilde

I try this every year. Roskilde is kind of the Danish equivalent of Glastonbury. The setting may not be as scenic, but it is a great festival with a huge variety of music and a great vibe. Very well organized too. The festival allow the public to vote for acts they'd like to see on the line up. Let'...

Re: UK tour dates announced....

I had read 9 a.m. in one place and 10 a.m. in another, so switched on the laptop at 8:55 just in case. I had the email at that point. I know this is not nice to read if you missed out (but it will be fine tomorrow), but I had no problems at all getting tickets for Guildford and Portsmouth. I even ha...

Re: Any Sugestions for current songwriters?

I'm a huge fan of Joe Pug. One of the best young(ish) songwriters in my opinion.

Re: Boss in Paris

Hi Watergirl, Were you right up at the barrier at the Bruce gig in Rome? Were you also at the FT gig in Belfast this year? Due to delayed flights and then a confused taxi driver we didn't get to the Circus Maximus until much later then we'd intended, so were quite far back, and watched the gig thro...

Re: Dublin!

No news on any of that yet. It's a good bit away, but I guess when it comes to the time we should pick a pub in the area and we can all go there for a pre-gig pint. My suggestion would be the Long Hall. Beautiful pub, close by. Don't miss the bars inside the Olympia though. There are several. One of...

Re: Boss in Paris

Hey TheBigJT, I actually travelled to LA and was at shows 1 and 2. It felt extravagant but I decided on that before the European shows were announced, and made a holiday out of it as I had never been to LA. It was great indeed to hear some of the less often played songs. The version of 'I wanna marr...
