It is another one of those greyish days which doesn't seem able to make its mind up whether it is going to rain or shine. Graham has gone into Bideford and I am hoping to have one of my gaggle of adopted nieces in the office for the afternoon, which will not only brighten up my day, but will make things easier..
A new biography of Motorhead apparently gives lotsa information (some of it unpublished) about Lemmy's tenure in Hawkwind. I am looking forward to reading it, so I must do myt best to blag a copy.
Trevor Rabin is one of the most unjustly overlooked Yes alumni. Not only did he make an unforgettable contribution to the band itself, but he has had a long, varied and interesting solo career. Herewith an interview.
I'm not sure how Rick Wakeman, who is a devout Christian feels about being described as a 'God'. In fact I don't know how I (who am also a Christian, albeit of a rather Zen type) feel about describing Rick as a 'God' despite the fact that he plays keyboards like an angel (oh dear this is getting confusing...)
For those of us males of a certain age the vision of a 6 foot tall naked Valkyrie dancing on stage with Hawkwind, is one of the defining images of our smutty adolescence. But what happened to Stacia after she put her clothes back on and left the band?
A couple of days ago Michael Des Barres was back on the Andy Dick show. Here is a backstage picture to prove it. Golly, I hope that there is video...
And finally, its our daily visit to the Universe of Thom the World Poet.
