The Friday Song


While turning out some boxes (mostly binning old British newspaper interviews full of ludicrous misinformation about me) I came across a letter from a friend who was saying farewell to all of his pals. He had grown up in a small American town where he was mercilessly bullied about his sexuality, so he moved to Los Angeles to escape it but had a tough time breaking into Hollywood. I saw him sing a great song  called ‘Water Under The Bridge’ in a cabaret club and he was brilliant. He died of HIV in his early 30s. Here’s a song he would have loved. It’s Patrick Wolf’s track, ‘The Days’, from the film ‘God’s Own Country.’
