Having reached the age of retirement this weekend, I’ve decided not to retire and instead play even more shows. I had a great birthday at home in Nashville with my friends and felines. We capped off the celebrations with an epic karaoke groove.
Thanks to everyone who sent birthday wishes, I love you all. I’m a dismal Brit in many ways, but I’m also I’m a chronic sentimentalist. Go Pisces! Wait ’til you see the silk fish shirt I bought to celebrate my 65th.

In May I’ll be playing solo and band dates in the UK. In June you’ll find me in Ireland and France. Full details on my website.
In other news, in 1982 I went to Norway and I never came back. The place has an empty ghostliness that entered my soul for life. My 2011 album “Tromsø, Kaptein” was released in Norway only as a loving tribute. I’m happy to say the album is now available in the US, UK and other countries by request. CDs are ready to be shipped and vinyl pre-orders will be sent out in April. I’ve been playing these songs live for quite a while, so you may have already heard “The Abyss”, “Old Man Weather” and “Light Blue Afternoon”.
By the by, my occasional collaborator and harmony singer Emma Swift has recorded a gorgeous version of Neil Young’s ‘Mellow My Mind”.

If you’re looking for something new to watch on tv, I can recommend “Electric Dreams”. I contributed a cover of Syd Barrett’s “Octopus” featuring Graham Coxon from Blur on lead guitar and harmonies. I was delighted to watch the episode it appears in and see Steve Buscemi apparently listening to it on repeat. Good on you, Steve! Good on you, Syd! . 

It’s a nice rainy night here in Tennessee, so I am going to curl up with the cats and a new book. Don’t worry, I’m still addicted to social media and if you want to keep in touch, Peace, love, polka dots.
