The Man

Getting in the way of work, yes, even on a Sunday, ‘Versatile” by Sir George I-Van Morrison. He surely is, for on the same day, he released a blues set called ‘Roll with the Punches’, 31 tracks in total. The Man is, not to put too fine a point on it, still fucking brilliant; in fact I’ve never heard him sing better . . . even if he will never be John Coltrane.

This gives me hope, for he was born in the same year as me, on a birthday he shares with my wife.

    He always will be our No.1. Husband & I were friends for 18 months before we attended a Van concert together (he also had Richard Gere on guitar & Cindy Crawford whipping up the crowd). That night, we became an item. We married over 20 years ago & had Moondance as our wedding dance. We went to Bali & hired a car in which somebody had left a cassette. We pressed “play” to find out what it was & the first song was Moondance.
