22/03/14 - After watching a brilliant documentary on TV about Gene Clark from American band The Byrds - I got into a conversation with Tim Blake who sent me an email telling me all about meeting Byrd's founding member Roger McGuinn. It's such a great story, I wanted to share it here! By the way, I'll be playing a track from The Byrds this coming Sunday from 10pm (23/03).

 

Hi Alex

 

So, this was back around 2001, I think, I'm sure you can check the date, I've got the ticket hidden away somewhere..

 

In the old days, McGuinn had an email addy on his website (now removed) where you could just email him, and astonishingly, one night, I sent him a mail and he replied straight away - he was obviously online in Florida at that time..

 

I was involved in Bristol Rovers FC at the time, so as me and a friend were going to see him a few months forward, I asked him whether he had ever played 'Goodnight Irene' (Yep that one, the Rovers Signature tune) in concert before, and whether he'd play it for myself and Vyv (My BRFC mate who was also a McGuinn Nut) at this particular show.

 

He replied (I have the signed emails printed out and on the wall of my music room) 'I haven't ever played Goodnight Irene before and maybe I could include it in my encores - but only if you remind me..' Too much of a challenge..

 

So, by mid afternoon of the show Vyv and myself are outside the Beaufort Theatre in Ebbw Vale, waiting for our man who we have been reliably informed has arrived by train into Cardiff, and is now in a taxi coming up to the Valleys...

 

Around 5pm Mr and Mrs McGuinn turn up at the venue, and he graciously spends an inordinate time with us - Camilla kept trying to drag him in for the soundcheck, but he graced us with him time - anyway I remind him of the email exchange, I've printed out the emails and he signs them for me - and he goes on to play the song for us in the encores, what an incredible moment - but the key moment is not ours - Some lovely lady harangues him about 'The Bells of Rhymney' telling him, 'it's not Rhymney, it's the bells of Rumney (In Cardiff!)' And from that day forth, he has played 'The Bells of Rhymey' pronounced 'the Bells of Rumney'

 

So later on, in this tiny theatre (200 people maybe) in the Valleys we get an astonishing round of local people cheering their own towns (I've never experienced anything like it in maybe 50 -odd years of concerts - sad old git alert), as McGuinn goes through 'The Bells of Rhymney' - 'Sad Bells of Rumney (Cheers!) Brown Bells of Merthyr (Cheers from another part of the room) Black bells of Rhondda (Cheers elsewhere) Grim bells of Blainau etc etc .When I recently reminded him on Twitter of this show he remembered it well, a fantastic compliment if you think about that for a moment. when you think of the thousands of shows he must have played in his career....

 

If you listen to the McGuinn 'Live in Spain' CD he tells the 'Rumney 'story, and next time he played Bristol, he was interviewed by the local press and remembered the BRFC story....so I'm proud to have played a small part in a show that McGuinn classes as memorable in his career.

 

Four years ago, I was blessed to be invited to visit Crosby Stills and Nash backstage at the Albert Hall, and met Steve Stills and Graham Nash after the show - sadly, Croz wasn't there, as he doesn't expose himself to anywhere people may offer him dope (Fair enough), but what an experience to be able to discuss music with Steven & Graham, who are both very lovely and accommodating people..Croz would have been great though...My Byrds exposure is not (and will never be) complete. I did, however, see 'The Byrds (Michael Clarke only) in 1990 at the Newport Centre, Appalling.

 

Best of luck for the new radio show

25/11 - I'm thrilled to say this Sunday's ‘Mystery Train Radio Show’ (27/11) will feature an interview with author Clinton Heylin. Clinton has written the liner notes that accompany a new Bob Dylan 36 CD Box Set called ‘The 1966 Live Recordings’ and has also penned a fascinating new book titled ‘Judas – From Forest Hills To The Free Trade Hall – A Historical View Of The Big Boo’. In a 2 hour special Clinton talks about the new Bob Dylan CD set and his brand new book - a fascinating chat that charts a period of time when Bob Dylan upset large swathes of the folk community by ‘going electric’. The months that followed saw Bob and his band leave America for a tour of Australia and Europe. Bob not only facing a barrage of questions from the press, but also a barrage of boos* from audiences that didn’t accept his new musical stance (*the booing and cat calling seemingly most prevalent here in the UK). Clinton talks about Bob’s live performances and a whole lot more… a conversation mixed with some incredible music from the box set and other notable songs. The Mystery Train 'Bob Dylan Goes Electric Special' departs www.severnfm.com 10pm Sunday the 27th of November.

For a change I've decided I'm not going to promote this Sundays 'Mystery Train Radio Show' (10pm the 15/02/15) in a big way till it's on Severn FM's 'listenagain' service. I've just binned the playlist planned for this weekends show - Yicks! Instead I've decided to do as a one off Mystery Train special about L.O.V.E. & Valentines Day. Don't expect things to be totally 'lovey dovey' as love comes in many forms. Good love, redemptive love, indifferent love, unrequited love and bad love will be explored. I have 5 hours worth of tunes in mind I need to condense down to 2, but in my head (and heart of course) this is shaping up to be a special one music wise. Come join me aboard 'The Mystery Train' for a post Valentines Special Sunday the 15th of February (Valentines Weekend UK) from 10pm on www.severnfm.com. Now... how to fit 5 hours into 2? Ummmm...
