Hey SilvioLives, I guess you should make a playlist of kid friendly songs, avoiding everything with the F-word in it.

Saw Eliza Carthy in Whelans. It was fabulous. I had only ever seen her collaborate with her musical family and various tiresome collectives, but to see her do her own gig, with a great band, was brilliant. She manned the CD stall afterwards, which was nice, and I have never seen anyone rip off cello...

I liked them and may go if I don't have to go to far out of my way for it. There was an interesting thread on the Backstreets message board (Bruce Springsteen site) recently following the break-up of R.E.M. Someone challenged people to list bands that have actually remained 'broken up'. Bands with d...

On the subject of songwriting - I listened to 'Balthazar, impressario' on my i-Pod going into work this morning. I hit repeat twice. Perfect on a Monday morning: sad, beautiful, melancholic; makes you think about life and wondering if you are heading in the right direction. Some achievement writing ...

Frank for Roskilde

Roskilde Festival have a survey on their website where you can submit names of bands you'd like to see appear at the festival. See www.roskilde-festival.dk . Roskilde is a great festival.

Wonderful news. Congratulations Frank! Will be there. I like the idea of an all-dayer and great that you'll keep the ticket price reasonable. Will you get them to take the seats out on the ground floor? I am just a tad disappointed that tickets go onsale to O2 customers first. I guess it is a big pl...

My first Frank gig was no. 872, at the Leftfield stage in Glastonbury. I had done my Glastonbury homework, checking out names that I didn't know on Myspace and i-Tunes, and I had come across Frank's version of 'Thunder Road'. I am a massive Bruce fan. I got to the tent on time, but was only able to ...
