    Thanks Andy, but it’s not Jeff, it’s Iain, but I will let you off.

    Dumfries Soul&Motown Weekender

    until

    The feedback regarding this Weekender has been quite overwhelming and all those positive comments have been most welcome. As it was the first, it was always difficult to know how it would go down, but thanks to Kev Roberts and his band of tried and trusted dj’s, plus the guests who were invited on board, the music went from the usual floor fillers to the seldom heard and back again. Ronnie McNeir was his usual class act, while Johnny Pryers certainly did not disappoint. All in all a great weekend and hopefully the first of many. Next years dates are already confirmed with everyone saying the year will return. If you didn’t make it this year, hopefully we will see you next November.

    Venue looking good, with the rooms having something of a makeover. Just having a break before heading back down to help get the sound systems in place. In less than twenty four hours the music will be playing. Actually met four guests checking in this afternoon. Bring it on.

    Dumfries Soul&Motown Weekender

    until

    Under a week until the Dumfries Motown and Soul Weekender. Tickets have sold well and only a few remain, so looking good, as does the dj line up and of course the guest appearance of Ronnie McNeir. There are also only two,or three rooms left at the hotel and anyone wanting to stay there should phone the hotel direct. Other guest houses and hotels within easy walking distance are either full or again with only the odd room available. Anyone wanting any further info, either on where to stay, how to get there, or whatever, just send me a DM and I will help you out.

    Dumfries Soul&Motown Weekender

    until

    Right then, just to confirm. For anyone who is still considering coming to the Dumfries Weeekender there are still a few rooms available at the Cairndale Hotel where the event is being held, as I was in at the hotel this morning. The Hotel website is showing no rooms available, but all rooms have been put aside for people attending the Weekender, so should you want to book a room simply phone the hotel direct and say that you want to book for the Weekender. The hotel is minutes from the town centre and less than five minutes from the train station. It is also an easy to get to by road. As said previously. Just DM me if you need any further info on anything. Hope to see you all there.

    Not sure if the Cairndale is sold out Andy. Anyone wanting to stay at the venue, give them a 'phone. There are other options available nearby and some are staying at the Premier Inn which is about a five minute drive away, with a Travel Lodge another 200 yards further on. Anyone needing any info re. the event, venue, town, surrounding area, just send me a DM and I will be happy to help.

    Looking for a book

    No, didn’t think you would, but thought I would mention it. Some are a bit overpriced. I’m after Strength of a Woman, the Phyllis Hyman biog. And that sometimes appears at a similar price. Happy hunting.

    There’s a copy on AbeBooks, but it is priced at $225.

    Red Bull Interview - Dave Godin

    Seems to be a bit like another of DG's favourite artists 'muddy waters'. Who knows what the correct story is? Only other person mentioned in the Stones part of the interview is someone called David Sted (?) who DG said he was walking home with after Jagger had been singing and he said to him that the singing was awful.

    Red Bull Interview - Dave Godin

    In the magazine interview he mentions the Ruth Brown record, but gives the fate as 1952. He goes on to say that he knew Jagger well. "I'll tell you the facts. I used to go to school with MJ and to my shame I was the person who introduced him to the music of black America. I remember I'd ordered the Bo Diddley l.p. 'Bo Diddley is a Gunslinger'. I was walking home the same way from school that night I was going to the record shop to collect this record and he was interested and you'll have to come round to hear it some time and he did, and I introduced him to the music." He goes on to say that the motivating force behind the Stones was a guy called Bobby Beckworth, who was eventually elbowed out. He relates that they started off as something off a jam session at Beckworth's house. Keith Richard is mentioned as being there and Dave says he played the harmonica, learning from records. Jagger couldn't play anything and Dave describes him at the time as being an awful singer.

    Red Bull Interview - Dave Godin

    Not trying to make any point. The topic subject was basically did Dave Godin know/go to school with Mick Jagger and I was simply mentioning what DG had said in an interview that I had just read in an old fanzine.

    Red Bull Interview - Dave Godin

    Not by this interview, as he mentions walking home from school with him, going to a record shop to pick up an album, having him at his house and sitting in and playing harmonica in a pre Stones jamming session.
