“Charidee” Rock!


My good friends JAMES FOX (left) and ADAM WILDI (right) with my darling wife NATALIE FORBES at a “charidee rock” night at Wintershall, Surrey, as guests of our great pal Rupert Wace.

James, who wrote Keef R’s Life, would probably concur with me that the only real music we heard all night was the half-hour set by the ever-extraordinary JEFF BECK, though Beck’s closing take on the Beatles’ ‘Day in the Life’ for me wasn’t a patch on the glorious ‘Nessun Dorma’ he did last time Rupert invited us to this event.

We’ll be featuring the Beckmeister on Rock’s Backpages this week, ahead of his new Loud Hailer album out next week…
