    Speaking of Casino burning down – there was a snatch of SoTW on of all place “The Archers” – BBC Radio 4’s long running soap opera, the everyday story of country folk. Apparently David Archer, who is meant to be a 57 year old farmer apparently has it on his car stereo – despite never previously have shown any real interest in any music.

    I haven’t listened to any of the interviews yet…But I love the claim in the headline, which is true, that because a casino burned to the ground, the band became a huge success and became wealthy. Life can turn on a dime…and when you least expect it.

    Most interesting interview with Ritchie! I hardly saw any journalist going that deep in the topics. Also, I’m glad to know there’s someone also digging “Hold On”, “Nasty Piece Of Work”, “Solitaire” like me. And, like me, who finds “One Man’s Meat” boring.
