I will be taking my book to every DC gig that I attend in the future in the off chance that I will get it signed!!


I was certain i would have it signed this time at the Botanique as when they play in the tent (there are different venues to play at the Botanique), artists go to the tent from the hall in an underpass so i was waiting at the stairs for him to come out of the venue after the gig. We were about a dozen (including Alphi whom i met) but after an hour most people didn't want to wait any longer but as it was the very first time i was waiting for someone backstage (after following him for about 20 years), i decided to wait as long as it needed.
So eventually we were only 3 people waiting for him so late so he stopped for us at the stairs and we had a (rather long) chat, took photos with our smartphones and the book signed of course.
Neil was as cool as i expected him to be. Smile

I sleep next to my favourite bookshelf, and Neil's book never lets me down when I need a late night read. Cheers me when I see it there.

A must!

Hi Shivers

I agree - it is a rare songwriter who can write in a way that stands up properly on the page.

Many of my favourite songs are just gibberish when written down - not so Mr Hannon's work, in the main.

There are even DC songs that I don't like much as songs (whisper it) which work as poems - 'Beside the Railway Tracks' is one such.

And the book is such a lovely thing - nothing quite like the smell of a new book. Smile

They're just a bunch of beauties, aren't they? Very Happy
I mean, how beautiful Death of a Supernaturalist reads on the page!!

I think a little light proselytization is called for when The Divine Comedy is concerned. Everytime we convert a new fan, a fairy springs to life hehe. I certainly do my bit
