Long Hot Summers

Many thanks for all your wonderful posts, comments and messages over the last few days by email and on Facebook. For those who have seen it, did you enjoy the documentary? & what about THAT finale we all managed to keep a secret  What a wonderful time we had. This photo has just been released by the team x


Seeing the Long Hot Summers documentary was so emotional. We had a screening in London recently and I kept poking Mick and he kept poking me. It just made me think, my god, where did that all go?

I said to Steve later, what we’ve got to do as soon as we’re allowed to hang out together is do a little screening, just for the band. I’ll do the nibbles and I’ll get Steve and Paul and Mick and a couple of family members, and we’ll just have to watch it again together. Because it just has to be done. We had such a great life. I’d forgotten what a great life we had, and the amount of brilliant things we did.


Saturday 31st October at 9pm. Let me know on my Facebook page what you think of the documentary.


Birthday!

Along with the band members of The Style Council I was asked to sign a drum skin being auctioned for a Boys Boxing Club, towards funds for their mini bus. This arrived via Iain (@mrcoolsdream) today for signing. Stay Safe everyone & best wishes x

HAPPY NEW YEAR and best wishes for 2020.



Happy New Year with best wishes to you all for 2018. Apologies as always for the gap between posts, but I will try and post more updates as the year progresses. For now please look out for interview snippets & studio performances tonight (5th Jan) on Top of The Pops 1985 on BBC 4 at 9pm & 10pm (There are 2 shows back to back). It was a big year for The Style Council & my solo career on Top of The Pops, and with Soul Deep just exiting the charts in January, the releases of Walls Come Tumbling Down & The Lodgers both warranted band Studio performances. Then of course See The Day was released and with it reaching number 3 in December either myself in the studio or the video were regularly shown ..... All that on just that one TV show alone! 

It will be many weeks until TOTP 1985 reaches See The Day, and I cannot say much more until it is aired this evening so for now thank you for your support & have a fantastic 2018 x

Hey friends, it's been too long again! 


I want to start by thanking all of you that sent messages after the sad news about George.  Although we hadn't been in touch for a while, his death touched me deeply and made me think of how young and innocent we all were when we were doing PA's around the country in a crappy old van. Sheer talent and hard work got George to the top, where he'll stay (For those that question why I didn't do any interviews - I refused).

 

I've just came back from another great writing session with Arden Hart and I'm really pleased with three new tunes, one a big slow ballad.  If any of you were at any of my last gigs, you might remember "Mountains," another slow one, but much more sultry and sexy!  I'm so excited and can't wait to start recording again.

 

And gigs?  I want to!

 

The closer I get to having a new album, the more "interesting" the news I'll have to post.  Until then, sending out love, peace health and happiness vibes..................xxxxx


I attended The Family Silver gig at Under The Bridge in Sept 2016 and it was lovely to surprise Steve White.
