Yes, but we felt that title was just too close to the Sinatra connection, even though the lyrics to that song really do say it all!
For me I just felt that it was pure Saturday night TV exposure and as I had a tour, an album and a charity trek all planned it seemed obvious to do it, and I had a great time to boot!
I’d known Pete Cox, Leee John and Sonia for several years and have met them many times… to be honest nearly everyone was pretty much OK, although there were a few moments!
I think that was more wishful thinking on our part, although I’m sure we would have been considered, but yes I would love to sing a James Bond theme – like most people I’m a massive fan.
I think the whole Sinatra thing has been done to death so this will be an album of songs that a lot of people won’t be familiar with but will hopefully love! I’m a massive fan of people like Tony Bennett, Jack Jones and Mel Torme… so there’s some clues for you!
I haven’t bought it yet but I will. I’m genuinely pleased for them and have always liked their stuff… as for Spandau Ballet I cover that in my book and nothing has really changed since then.
It’s a beautiful part of the England and as a kid I loved it and I’m sure I still will.
What do you think!?!
You never know, there might be more – maybe all three of us one day, but it won’t be next year as that’s when I’m celebrating my 25th Anniversary!
The ones that will be there until the day I die are ‘Gold’, ‘True’ and my personal favourite ‘Through The Barricades’, but for this tour we’re also doing ‘Instinction’…
I wouldn’t discourage anyone from being a professional musician but I would always warn them not to be too trusting of the people around them, and always take independent advice and of course I’d help them – you’d always help your kids!
It would have to be a CD Walkman.
Being a father. But apart from that I love to ski, scuba dive and horse ride and I’m just very happy to still be doing what I love to do…
Family and friends, and knowing that they’re happy too, good food and stacks of good French wine!
Apart from the live DVD and CD of me and Martin I’m going to be recording a jazz/swing album and possibly putting together some sort of compilation for the 25th Anniversary next year.
I live in hope!
I can’t see that happening for some time as I love music so much and am so involved in that, but I do care very deeply about my country and how it is being run and that’s why I love politics too.
I would love just to be still playing and making music.
If my voice remains strong, please God, hopefully I’ll be singing until the end – sorry to disappoint you!
We do need to be touring in more and more countries outside the UK and we are working on it. As you know, I love Italy (although the rest of Europe and the world are great too!) and I would love to play China, Russia and India…
I’m a 6’4″ bloke and I take size nine which is very small!
John Keeble because I love him, he’s my mate!
No I haven’t, but I have met a couple of kids who have been given ‘Hadley’ as a first name – strange but true!
Many thanks to everyone who sent in questions for Tony!
