Sir Creep

Posted Yesterday, 08:27 PM

Henry McCullough, who played with loads of bands - highest profile probs with Paul McCartney and Wings - continues to be very unwell and living on his state pension and little else. A worthy cause, frankly, and there's a star-studded benefit gig 17th March at the Half Moon in Putney.


You'll notice he is on my Cancel My Appointments team! He was actually my 20th selection, as I took it upon Joe Cocker's late 2014 passing that his guitar player would come join him in a synchronistic effort.
At least that was my basis.

Oh, he's the guy who was really drunk at the time!

 

 

 

Well yeah, the £40 a ticket for the benefit gig and his famous mates are there to help him but it may well be the case that Henry's love of a decent party contributed to the near-fatal heart attack that laid him low in the first place.

 

Unless they've increased the size of the backroom at the Half Moon, you can usually only fit about 200 people in there.

When I say she was one of my girlfriends I should point out that I never actually met her or anything. Just a schoolboy crush..

 

 

Damn, cause I thought for a minute I'd been on the same forum as a guest who went out with somebody so famous I'd nearly heard of them. I'm crushed now.

 

Oh, so does that mean I can't list Hayley Mills, Suzi Quatro and Debbie Harry as my ex-girlfriends?

I'll never forget the words Suzi said to me on the phone the last time I spoke to her.

Which was "Who are you"? and "How did you get my number"?

German co-initiator of the Techno movement in the early 90s William Röttger is dead at 66:

He founded the label "low spirit" and was responsible for pushing artists like Westbam, Marusha and Mark 'Oh. He also organized the Mayday techno festival and participated in the creation of the Love Parade. I'm surprised not to find an english obituary so far, because the anglo-american music press usually likes german electronic music (even somewhat more than the average german...). 

Here's an old Guardian article of someone visiting the Mayday in 2001:
