Dear Mr, D Warren,I do have fantasies that one day David Bowie or Paul McCartney will ring up and say something like "yeah,i've lost my way Andy,can we get together and you can put me back on track". But I know that wont happen,so no I just wait to be contacted generally.Having said that I am getting mighty sick of collabs.
Yes,part of me would like to do an opera{already have the subject} and one of these days i'll get around to penning the material for the cross dressing western musical I've been threatening.As for animators,I was due to work with Henry Sellick some years ago to do the music for a stop frame animation of LETTERS FROM A LOST UNCLE,but the man with the money,one Harvey Weinstein,didn't 'get' the story,so the film was never made.Shame,I can still remember how the main theme song went and all.

Dearest Mr.P,
As I myself am blindly tossing an idea right now to you, might you send a communication to Mr. McCartney? You know he likes your stuff and someone has to start the conversation. Maybe he's too busy or doesn't respond, but it's worth a shot...at least I think so. The potential resulting music ....well, words fail me. I don't mean to put you on the spot and don't expect a response. Just please consider it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I don't think it is vain at all, but hey, what do I know. It's your area of expertise.
All I can do is suggest it to you both. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I does amaze me how many of the collaborative efforts never reach a successful conclusion. Granted some are works in progress and due to circumstances beyond the control of both parties, the collaborative fire dies until only embers of songs are left.

It seems to be when you are involved with more mainstream artists or when it is a more standard song structure format it becomes fraught with difficulties. Ego's, labels and high expectations get in the way. The Terry Hall tracks were good and a surprise collaboration, well it was to me.

I enjoyed your album with Harold Budd. Are experimental collaborations easier?

I make no bones of it, I prefer your experimental side and have done for a few years now.

I always thought a collaboration with Sean O'Hagan (High Llamas) or even Kevin Hopper (Ex-stump) would be interesting. Well in my head it sounds a glorious concept.

I thought that was an outstanding idea. The resulting music from such a collaboration would be awesome I'm sure. Sure it's true. He doesn't need you, but you really don't need him either. Two amazing artists working together doesn't have to be about one pulling the other out of the dust does it?

Paul could certainly use some help with lyrics - like Elvis Costello did for him a few years back (and John Lennon did earlier.)

With Ms. Olive in the UK, and Mr. Rowe and Mr. Partridge seemingly squiring her through the orchards of Wiltshire, can we hope that there is a collaboration in the offing?

Another excruciating performace by Macca at the Olympic opening ceremony last night to end a otherwise innovative event on a sour note.

It was a bit panto with the "let's hear the men sing....now let's hear the ladies" stuff. I fully expected him to end it with "If you enjoyed yourselves I'm Paul McCartney. If you didn't, I'm John Lennon. Goodnight!"



Still, I thought the whole shebang was terrific, if a little er..... eccentric at times.

The eccentric bits were the best. And it's pissed off a few Conservative MP's one who said it was "leftie multi-cultural crap". So a complete success. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Pity about today's GB push-bike chaps. And the BBC's coverage and commentary won't be winning any medals going off today's shemozzle. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Having watched the London 2012 Opening Ceremony, I must say...I've seen better Bond girls.
