Mike would like to say how delighted he is that Caroline is back on board as his PA. She will be able to keep you all well up to date with his current activities. These are:
New Rock Album
Mike will be playing all the instruments except drums and there will be a guitar solo on every track. So far he has made 9 demos and has ideas for the 10th track. Mike is singing the vocals on the demos but the intention is that all or most of the tracks will be sung by the best talented vocalists, male and female, suited to each track. The vocalists are under discussion and may be well known artists or maybe not so well known.
Mike is in preliminary discussions with Steve Lipson as possible co producer. Mike's record company, Mercury/Universal, are very excited about the project. The album will feature only live guitars, basses, and hammond organs with live strings. The drums so far have been recorded by John Robinson.
Mike has finally re acquired www.mikeoldfield.com after nearly 10 years of having lost control of it. It will be Mike's personal site which he will be heavily involved with and will feature subjects that interest him personally.
There will of course be musical parts to the site but also there will be areas devoted to spiritual interests and also psychological issues which as you know is one of Mike's special interests.
Watch out for sections on motorbikes and model helicopters! Mike's children will also be invited to contribute to their own section and Caroline will have her own "Mad Cow" page. There will of course be forums on every subject.
Here's to the future!
