It’s been very exciting to hear all the positive feedback around the Remastered project and the lyric book. Thank you so much for embracing both of them. It means a great deal to everyone involved.
I didn’t do any interviews for either project hoping that the work could speak for itself. I read some articles that included a number of inaccuracies and usually I don’t respond. However I do feel I need to address one story which came from a phone interview I did two years ago. I was very disappointed that the use of a quote out of context was timed with the release of the live album and it seemed as if the focus went onto the quote rather than the work. It was deeply frustrating. At the time I discussed the idea of responding to it with close friends and we all agreed it was best to let it go. It seems the quote keeps being used and so I’d like to present my side of the story. Over the years, I have avoided making political comments in interviews. My response to the interviewer was not meant to be political but rather was in the defence of women in power. I felt he was putting a really negative slant on powerful women, referring to a witch hunt involving Hilary Clinton. In response I said that we had a woman in charge of our country, and that I felt it was a good thing to have women in power. I should have been clearer when I then said it was the best thing that had happened to us for a long time - because I greatly disliked the behaviour of the previous PM, who at that point I felt had abandoned us and everybody felt angry and let down.
Again with no response from me to the latest resurfacing of this article, it could make it seem like I am a tory supporter which I want to make clear I am not.
I won’t be commenting further on this, but feel it’s become so pervasive that I felt I needed to clarify this matter once and for all.
Happy New Year,
To sleep, perchance to dream- ay, there's the rub
I don't like that man. I must get to know him better.
This is where we walked This is where we swam Take our picture here Take a souvenir

We all heave a sigh of relief instead of putting her next to Bryan Ferry. I expect she is geen or lib dem, but I would like to think she was Monster Raving Loony.

Does this mean I'm going to have to reconsider my refusal to buy the Before The Dawn album? :?

As suggested on the Hoffman board, we've seen all this before - the next story to appear will be about Tori Amos fervently denying that she is in any way a Kate, she was just celebrating a woman in power...
And now for an update on today's Shitty Brexit News...
