Oh I think Rockville is wonderful and it sorta aches with a particular kind of adolescent heartbreak. Mills had such a lovely voice

I can also play it on the guitar. Which is nice

Mills is a classic example of a guy with a great voice for harmony/backing vocals who is a bit insipid when he sings lead.
Near Wild Heaven is a great tune, but his voice is a bit too weak for it I reckon.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Has Mills an All Things Must Pass in him?
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Oh I agree, but he was never a great vocalist (although I like his vocals well enough) -sorry to derail things with The Beatles!
