Have you noticed this?

Originally published in Norwegian by Dagbladet.
Since last May, available in English (in a very expanded version, as the journalist says).

Thanks for sharing the link to this cool interview! The bit about TB4 certainly sounds promising. I wonder if this project will ever see the light of day...

Thanks, that was a brilliant interview. When Mike mentions:

There was huge tragedy in the family and I had legal problems, personal problems and financial problems.

What were the legal problems he faced?

I didn't know Mike had met Vangelis either, that was cool.

I enjoyed the interview, although I'd have liked to see a discussion of the cover art, and (what seems to me to be) the narrative thrust of the music. As for TB 4, perhaps we should all start talking about TB 5 to create a sense of urgency  :laugh: And if Mike ever reads this, how about a Tubular Bells emoticon! :cool:

Hello
Regarding the legal problems Mike was probably referring to the
court battle with Noel Gallagher about the house in Ibiza he sold him

Great interview

I thought that was all sorted years before? I think it was Noel's fault, he clearly didn't get a survey!!!

also thanks to add for posting this interview, new to me too, and interesting. Mike has become a very engaging talker, he reflects quite deeply, usually, on his answers, and seems to know himself a lot better than he did some years back. which I suppose is the case for many of us, but, its always very interesting to hear what he thinks, and what he has been up to.

I guess he is a solitary figure these days, now he is not married, I know he has his children, but it's not the same as being married, he can have more time to just do his own thing, which is usually making music.

You're welcome, Marky! (And I'm late.) I am happy you liked it.

Yes, it is always interesting to listen to the greats. I feel that I am always taught by their lives and their views.
