I have been a big fan of Al Stewart since I saw him perform way back in 1971. When I read a press release about 13 of his CD's being remastered and re-released I was in there like white on rice asking for a review set. I was really, really happy when I got them in my hot little hands.
On a whim, I decided to go for the big one, and saa if I could get an interview with the maestro himself. Well, I did, and this morning I got to chat with him. You can find the interview on Blogger News.
I was most impressed by his wit and charm, this guy is a class act. He was also very candid in his answers, and certainly did not try and duck any questions.
Maybe the most memorable moment was towards the end, he was talking about his latest album and asked me if I had heard it, I have not. "Thats a pity" he says "You really should, I'll get my pr people to send you a copy". Now I think that is very nice!
Great performer, and a really all round nice guy.
