    Paul Young touring 35 years of 'No Parlez'

    A little unfair to say, "I never actually saw the talent or the appeal", and then post a clip from 2017 to prove your point. Paul Young's voice/throat problems have been well documented. He says himself that he can't sing how he used to. Whether his "new" singing style is acceptable, well... You're being ironic, right?

    Favrite bass solo?

    Featuring my dear friend and band-mate Jimmy Copley on drums who sadly passed away last year.

    I personally, wouldn't get within 5 miles of a compressor pedal! I've recently taken issue with our monitor engineer, who, in spite of my occasional protestations, insists on adding "Just a little bit" of compression, which is mostly fed to the drummer and keys player. Dynamics in the band is very important, I need to be in total control. Using a compressor, even "Just a little bit", takes away just a little bit of control.
  5. Nice to see Diego Maradona keeping himself busy on BVs!

    Loved the look of a Strat and P bass at first sight. Still think there is something wonderfully futuristic looking about them, especially the Strat.

    If it makes you feel any better, and not knowing the actual track, it's quite possible that the person credited with playing the bass part didn't actually play what you're hearing.

    Bizarre but true musical collaborations?

    Thin Lizzy - Midge Ure
  10. Won't Get Fooled Again - closest I got was playing it with Kenney Jones' band.

    In the spirit of esprit de corps I shall refrain from posting my immediate thoughts on reading your post. Must be a coincidence that the BBC game show hosted by Alexander Armstrong was on as I read it.

    I can't really comment on what you've heard or not heard, other than to say, you've clearly been very successful in avoiding all forms of media for the last 55 years.

    Not sure how many of those changed a band's modus operandi.

    And some of those very same groups soon realised that the huge success of The Beatles was a game changer.

    I've always held the view that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that some peoples opinions are worth more than others. Until this interview I would have said QJ's opinion's were worth their weight in gold... seems I would have been wrong!
