As far as Eldritch witticisms go, my fave would have to be a quote I read in one of the music rags when I lived in the UK. Eldo was quoted saying:

"I am the only person in the history of rock to go on the road for reasons other than getting laid."

.... With all this talk of Huey, I think I'll go put on the Duets CD. I love Huey's Cruisin' single (with Gwyneth Paltrow - another great name) and Paul Giamatti's Hello, It's Me.

Can't really be bothered reading through all your "were you ever a Huey Louis fan?" replies, but I notice that someone was trying to sell a drum machine on eBay for ages and said it had once belonged to a member of Huey Louis and the News. I think it was an Oberheim DX, the budget version of the DMX...

I have romantic interests from one end of town to the other - and I'm not boasting. One girl, who I have been seeing a bit of, but not in recent weeks, sent me a text message last night after I texted her. I had asked, "Doing anything over this weekend?" She replied, "Uh, sort of - tomorrow's my 30t...

Early in his career, Marcus's business mentor was a part-owner of the famous Las Vegas casino, Caesar's Palace. Nowadays, Ma...

there is a flavour of goth (to which i have always prescribed) of which is eldritch is pretty much the living embodiment on the surface of things fairly austere and "germanic", hard-faced, cold and intelligent underneath, a very dry (and wry) sense of humour, quite detached but at the same time qui...

Because I am so accustomed to playing the wing and being on the edges as a result, I don't mind chipping in a bit of info here, typically from left of centre.

Goth as a style of dress is pretty impractical during the daytime, isn't it? Especially if you're living in a hot climate. As for the goth music scene itself, it seems to have gotten worse over the years. The original 'goth' bands, like Sisters, Birthday Party, Virgin Prunes, all had a bit of humour...

The beanie resembles the type favoured by Public Enemy fans or homeless people in big American cities. A closer look reveals the following: three lights used, all spots. (Good. Any more than three lights and it starts to get confusing.) 50mm lens at around /2.8 or thereabouts for limited depth of fi...

Gimme Shelter

Does anyone know why Von changed the words of Gimme Shelter from the original (Stones) lyrics? I'm talking about the "Love... it's just a...." and "War... it's just a.... " part. I've heard Eldo only covered songs he considered laughable. And, to me, Gimme Shelter was indeed always pretty sh-tty. Ju...

Andy said in an interview years ago that he stopped having anything to do with his parents. Whether that has since changed, I don't know. I suppose it can difficult when you reinvent yourself.
