GUSTAV METZGER 1926-2017

  “Gustav was the most gentle man you could meet. Courteous, kind and attentive, he was also tough, determined and an activist until the end.   I misunderstood his manifesto when I was young. He had taught that artists should stop creating pretty or beautiful art for those we today describe as the ‘Elite’ (he once called […]

David Bowie

  Woke up to the awful news that my lovely friend David Bowie passed away. I am so deeply sad, but he just completed a radical and audacious new album, and that is a great thing. Personally I am grateful to him for doing it.   For those who were his fans he was a […]

STIGGY

  I’m so annoyed that I didn’t try harder to reconnect with my old friend Robert Stigwood before he died. We always had such fun together and he was a grand supporter of The Who and me in particular. He was one of the few men I met who openly confessed to finding me attractive […]

TOUR DIARY – December 9th, 2012

The Clown who plays Ukelele.   It occurs to me that Roger’s first TCA ‘ambassador’ Sarah Sterner, who tells a funny story about being entertained by a clown playing ukelele when she was recovering from cancer treatment, might not be so funny for the clown in question.

Three Tributes

 CHRIS STAMP   Chris Stamp wasn’t just a good looking boy. He was tough, kind, creative and fun to be around. I can’t think of anyone with whom it was better to brainstorm. For me, our best idea will always be THE WHO SELL OUT. We got so excited when we figured we could sell […]
