I haven’t been to London since my 1991 tour w/ Morrissey.
So much has changed! Globalization has just about ruined the world I think. I find myself sneaking down back streets trying to get away from Forever 21, GAP Banana Republic and all the other US chain stores that have spread themselves like an evil jam all over the world. It was refreshing to find myself on Saville row where the old fashioned tailor is still tried and true There is nothing like a smart suit. Tomorrow I hope to visit the Drill Hall, in Camden, the site where I had my record release party in 1986. Here’s a link to me singing AMAZONS on the Old Grey Whistle Test
