song or album?
I already own most of his stuff but just interested to see what you think.
Song for me is Hotel Room.
it's probably something more obvious for me though like The Ocean maybe.
Did you see him play inside the Devil's Arse the other week?
I didn't even know about it, and now I'm slightly heartbroken
i missed it too - it sold out pretty quick :(
My friends met him in the pub after though... i think one of them tried to hug him, but Hawley wasn't too keen on the idea.
saw him in Glasgow in february and was one of the best gigs i went to this year.
and 'The Ocean' is my favourite song. Do you ever go on his forum? It's a bit cliquey but more often than not there's plenty of funny posts from the man himself. He's a prolific poster!
When he was on in the Bridgewater last year he was on about this really really drunk guy he met about 10 years ago on a night out in Manchester. He never got his name but he said he was the best harmonica player he'd ever heard. He went into the same pub before the show and he was there! Ten years later he managed to bump into him and he brought him along to the Bridgewater in all his drunken glory and got him up on stage.
It was absolutely amazing.
at the Lowry. I think he's called Clive and he's done a few tours with Richard. Bet he can't believe his luck!
called Tonight. Not one of his best known songs but it is absolutely gorgeous.
and "Baby, You're My Light"
best song? Probably The Ocean.
