Playing guitar for Peter Doolan

This Friday I will be having the great joy of playing guitar for the brilliant Peter Doolan. I’ve had a lot fun learning his fantastic songs, interpreting my own guitar parts for the songs and I’m really looking forward to the gig! With the equally brilliant Diego Brown and The Good Fairy in support this is gonna be superb night of live music!

R.I.P Mark Lanegan

Very sad by this news of singer and musician Mark Lanegan passing.

I saw Mark Lanegan perform with Isobel Campbell few years back at the Barbican. It was an incredible gig, two amazing voices but Mark Lanegan’s voice is one of the very best ever and to hear it live was such a joy. After the gig both artists (along with support act Willy Mason) did a signing and I have a treasured signed copy of Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell’s album Hawk signed by all three. Lanegan was hunched down at the signing table, baseball cap pulled over face, like he was incredibly shy and trying to hide. After he signed the record I said my nervous and deepest thanks and as I turned to walk away, some unfound bravado come to me and I said to him “Oh I wish could fucking sing like you!”. This little smile appeared from under the baseball cap. It was great moment and a very special gig for me.
