    Paul, I wondered whether you had perhaps thought about speaking to some of those who have worked professionally - ie fellow musicians, producers, managers et al - with Roy over the years for their reflections, favourite work etc for a future podcast? Might make for interesting listening!

    I do have some plans for mixing up the interview bit somewhat in the future once I have cleared my queue of interviewees. However I don't have many contacts. I am going to lean on Mr Crisp, who is a good friend, to see if he'll help and I had an idea of a sound technician geek-out with Tony Pugh, but who knows... I haven't got very far yet.

    If anyone has "contacts" please drop me a line. I can't pay anything for people's time, unfortunately, this is a loss maker for me :)

    It would be good to hear Darren Crisp, I'm sure he has more than a few stories to tell.

    Fellow musicians

    I suspect that Andy Roberts might be up for a chin wag but I haven't bumped into him for a while so I'm not sure if he still lives in Brighton.

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    what about Matt Churchill .... I know he's got some great stories about Roy ... though not sure if he'd want to be recorded telling them ... though I'm sure he'd make a good interviewee ?!? I have contact details for him, if need be.

    Very interesting idea Chris. Please get in touch with contact info, I would like to drop him an email... I have him friended on myspace but if there's a direct email that might be better.

    I've sent you Matt's contact details via a private message ! I spoke to him yesterday and he is well up for being a guest on one of your future podcasts !!

    Using some of my other contacts ... I also have the home address of someone else who might be a good guest ... though who knows if they be up for it ... it might be worth a punt ?!? The one and only ... Kate Bush !!

    [ I'll send you her address once I've checked it's correct ( via another contact ). ]

    Thanks Chris.

    I'd be amazed if Kate was up for an interview, since she is notoriously reclusive (and who I am to question someone's wish for privacy) but it's worth a try!

    It must get a bit tedious being notoriously reclusive eventually for anybody, wouldn't you think?

    Ideas

    How about David Bedford? His website gives the following address for contact: dvbmus@aol.com

    Or Peter Jenner, who is chairman of MMF (Music Managers Forum): admin@mmf-training.com

    I'm sure John Leckie would have a tale or two, but I've no idea how you'd get hold of him.

    All long shots I know, but if you don't ask, you don't get!

    Best,
    +A

    Aha! I wondered whether any comments would be made about that track. I have to say it has not worn well, at all...

    So who are the 'luminaries' you have in mind then, Paul, for the future? Any hints?:wink:

    David Gilmour, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Kate Bush now they would be VERY luminous!:biggrin:

    Or, as he's been mentioned here, Pete Jenner (I always remember that quote of his: 'Sometimes Roy is the worst performer ever. Sometimes he's the best; it's always good theatre.')

    Beep (BP Fallon) has a wealth of stories I'm sure (almost on a par with Max Clifford!).

    Then there's Roger Christopher who engineered on Death or Glory (who always thinks I'm recording him, for some strange reason!:confused1:).

    I'm going to work on the "luminaries" over time, but the next couple will be "back to basics" after the muso-heavy recent ones, and we'll have a fan on who a lot of old timers here will know and who had some really interesting things to say. I interviewed him yesterday and got 1 hour and 45 minutes or so out of him; I'm still trying to work out whether I should do it in 2 or 3 parts!

    PS congratulations on your new title, HarperPR!

    Ah, so the next one is a fan, male, an old timer...any more clues?:wink:

    My new title, yes, came as a shock at 1400. You do like to surprise! Although your title might suit me better today: 'slightly desperate' - and trying to comprehend Norwegian!:D

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    How about a group interview with some of the new/young musicians doing a tribute album? Why and how they became fans, etc. Hopefully they have a savvy intern to focus on your e-query.
