Great to note your response to the question about Jimbo over the new album. So, in the same vein are the dulcet tones of Ruth’s beautiful voice to be heard also? By the way, have you heard her and the other Jenny’s sing, ‘One Voice?’ Stunning! God, we need some news!

I have heard that but Ruth isn't on the new album this time. We have another couple of guests on a few tracks.

Hey Guy! I just wanted to say thanks to the band for including So Far Away in the setlist every year. Just like Romeo and Juliet, it’s a beautiful song and it means a lot to a lot of people for different reasons. Can’t wait for the next tour!

me too

Was lucky enough to catch a Vince Gill show in Madison wi. Sunday evening. And to my surprise Glenn was playing Bass. Vince was sure to point out Glenn was happy to be playing in his home town!!! Also the legendary Paul Franklin on Steel. Of course Vince was incredible!! Just a superb night of music. Nothing but smiling faces all the way home!!!

Absolutely

IBANEZ87, Paul Crockford post in Instagram is explained in the post itself. A professional photographer taking shots of MK in British Grove Studio's to be used for promotion for next MK record. Sometimes the only thing you have to do is read before bothering Guy.

Hi Guy, can you tell us more about Crockford’s post at MK’s studios?

Mr Crockford doesn't work at British Grove. He has his own management company in central London.

And another one .. this belljon guy seems to grow out as a real Troll to your forum. I guess the best way to shut him up would be to release the real track list wouldn’t it… or maybe it’s some sort of strange humour that beats me… greetings, W.

If I could I would.

Ok I try another question as waiting kills us all… you reported very early and showed pics of old synths and keyboards and stuff being back in BG. It almost seemed like the Return of the Synth. Are they used on the Local Hero Musical music alone, or do they appear on the solo album also? Would it really give away that much if you told us? I always liked the songs with you on synths very much, like Sands of Nevada or Junkie Doll or others. Greetings, W.

There have been many synths used on the new album, including the mighty Yamaha GS-1. Local Hero has a much more limited soundscape synth-wise.

I can progress this to the finished article very soon so my only question is ‘are you in a strong position with your tracks too?’

Doc, Just a stupid random question. Nothing to do with yourself or DS. Back in the early 90’s, GnR put out two albums, (use your illusion 1&2). In my mind they were both brilliant. Not sure what you thought? That was pure marketing genius, and financially for the them. It’s like you cant have one without the other.
My question is, why do we never see other artists doing this? Surely it must be such a money maker? Nowdays we just see double CD’s in a bigger sleeve.

Who knows?

Dr f, I really like your idea about taking my track listing and making it into an album. Couple questions pls. Would it be possible to book British Grove for the recording session, at a time when you, Mark and the rest of the boys have some spare time. And second, thinking out loud I admit, could we dovetail the release dates so that my record goes out on the same day as Mark’s, maybe even as a series of bonus tracks. Stoked to say the very least. Look forward to hearing from you.

send me the songs!

Hi Guy,
I’ve recently listened to some tracks on your solo albums. They are absolutely amazing, let me tell you that. Lyrics & arrangement are on point, songwriting is great but the best part of it all is your singing voice. JUST WOW. I knew you could sing ( backing vocals always on fleek) but I had never expected you to be such a talented vocalist. You’re able to do so many different things, it’s impressive & deeply inspiring. Btw you should be given the opportunity to sing more & not just backing vocals for Mark since I think your voice is even better than his ( so much more melodic and high-pitched).
PS: I wish you had sung the ” I want my MTV” line on the BIA record. Sting’s voice doesn’t feel like it belongs in there ( personal opinion, please don’t judge & I like the Police)

My new no.1 fan. Thanks

Hello Guy, besides the musical are there any other projects you are working on or is the musical taking all off your time untill it starts? Have a nice holiday that is if you’ll have the time……

At the moment, it's the musical and prep for Mark's album release.
