Here's a picture of me and my brother shaun.

Had a great time with Rachel and Pete on Who TV last night, all the songs seemed to go well, except for forgetting the middle eight in ' Better Me ', which I seamlessly adlibbed. I hope!
And we nearly forgot my 'Bluebell Wood' dvd, but I'm really pleased it was played. Brendan, Rene's brother, is an avid film maker in the making,and does these films for me out of the goodness of his own heart.
The woods we filmed in are called 'Cotton Wood', my best friend and I would go camping there every weekend when we were young.
But it was my Dad who took me there the first time, I think. Well around April time, the woods fill with bluebells, the smell's and the colours are magical, the birds are in full song, and you feel the start of a new year's growth.
Rene came up to the studio after work, and caught the last hour of the show, not that I saw her much, but it was lovely to see her straight after. We all went out and got some food, then stayed up in London, and got a ridiculously early train home in the morning, through the morning rush hour traffic. It is cramped and horrible, I would hate to make that journey everyday.
By the way, I wrote answers and thanks where applicable, reading each of the comments twice, not to get anyone's name wrong. Finished and pressed 'publish', only to have them disapear again.
I won't let it phase me, but I'll answer and thankyou all tomorrow, until then, cheers all.

Hey Mikey. That is a nice picture of you and your brother. I can't wait for your album to come out! Your lyrics are very well written. I know how hard it is to think of lyrics, and it is apparent that you are a natural.
Keep on truckin'!

Great pic, your brother is handsome! Is that how you would look with short hair? LOL

Thanks for the comment again. How interesting that the film was shot in "Cotton Woods", My parents happen to own a home here in a suburb of Salt Lake City called Cottonwood. It looks very similar to that location you shot at. What a coincidence!

Have a great weekend I am off out of town and hopefull will be back by next Wed. to catch your show while eating my lunch. Good luck it is fun to watch!!

I've watched a couple of the Who TV shows - wasn't home for this week's but will catch it next week - and I find it hilarious. You're quite funny.

I also dig your music a whole lot, which is good. Your voice is very nice and I like your songwriting style as well. What's your favorite to perform?

Wow, you and your bro look a lot alike. Two monkeys, and handsome at that!

Sorry you lost your responses, I can imagine how that felt.

Thanks again for the great show Wednesday. Love to you and Rene!

Songwriting comes in a myriad of ways does it not? Sometimes the words flow, sometimes they are a struggle, sometimes the music first, sometimes the words, sometimes it's written on keyboards, other times bass, mostly with an acoustic guitar. Have you ever written with just the words and a rhythm, filling in the chords later? Or not using any chords at all? Just voice and 'sounds'? The avenues for creativity as a songwriter are wide indeed.

Hi Molly, no even with short hair, my brothers still better looking than me. Have a great weekend, hope you can make next weeks show.
Thanks Colleen, your very kind. My favorite song to play is 'Plastercine'.
No baby yet Belinda, thanks for your great comment.
Thanks Brina, hope your feeling a bit better now, take care.
Perfectly put Ticharu, my sentiments entirley. You sound super cool, we are compelled to create, thanks mate.
You are so lovely Lucy, thankyou very much. Cheesey egg is easy, its just scrambled egg with some cheese added while cooking, have it on toast, with a cup of tea. Its so simple I'm a little worried your going to be a little let down. Let me know how it goes, thanks again Lucy, take care.

You two look so much alike.People say that about me and my sisters too. But its not the same.. I would have to make the same type of trip on the train into Boston it was very cramped, and the smell of perfume AUGH!!!. I remember when I was doing Concert Merchandising we would be driving home at 7:00 am from a WHO-Kids Are Alright gig and we would be stuck in rush-hour traffic. WE were a mess, all wacked out and dishoveled. People would be looking at us from their cars all dressed up ready for a great work day, and here we were leaving a concert where we were up for 4 days strieght working, moving merchandise, counting it all back, reboxing for the next show and settling up with the bands accountant. Those were the days 180 shows like that in a row I did and Im still alive....

Hello Mikey~ I just love your Blog entries~ very serene....I can envision the bluebells so vivdly.There really is nothing like long walks in the woods and fields.....
Love the pic! *quite handsome, aren't you?*
I told my daughter Emma (she's 10) the "monkey screech" story...she laughed.
My husband had a listen to your music on the last show and said your voice reminds him of Steve Winwood. I agree!
Anyway~ have a lovely Sunday, Best to you and Rene!!
