How kind of you Les! My God, this thread is all about ME...How to get back on topic and save myself this complimentary embarrassment??
Weeelll,here goes! On sunday I was getting customary "born the wrong colour" conversation from a well meaning fan...I told him I get it a lot, e.g."Anyone toldya yer a white w*g?"(I'm not joking!) One time I was touring with the "Black theatre Coop". At a "blues" party one night, 20 stories up in tottenham, in a dark room full of skanking bodies, loud reggae bass and ganja smoke, the BTC secretary introduces me to a friend: "This is Tim - he's our token white!"
"Token White? Good name for a band!" this bloke replied.
Wot? Better than "Famous Grouse Black??"
I' ll certainly be looking out for it (the bottle, not the band!)
