No. not me in my Coverville shirt.
No, not Thea Gilmore signing it.
The (other) balding gentleman in behind. His name is Rod Clements and opened for Thea in Birkenhead, impressing my 'date' sonofwebcore and I. But who is Rod Clements?
Show was £12 and worth the price to hear that lovely voice, for Fluff's soulful accompaniment,and for Rod's short opening set. A's for all three. B for atmosphere, C for production, percussion and guitar, so B- overall. A talent like Thea - eight albums by age 30 - would shine brighter in more favorable lighting.
Spill points to DaddyPig for knowing who Rod Clements is/was. (Read comments). So in a blatant bid to keep the thread going, Thea married her producer/manager Nigel Stonier, who also plays with her, which leads to the obvious questions about mixing work and pleasure. Is this a good idea? Can you still be objective at work? Does it inspire or stagnate you working with one person? Other than your kid hearing some great lullabies and carpooling, are there other home benefits? And do we know any examples. Feel free to discuss or go about your merry business as you please.
