It’s 3 days to go until my 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Concert at the Grand Theatre. 3rd October, the special day in 1973 that I signed to Elton John’s Rocket Records…. except I’m not sure if we’ve got the right date!!!
I woke up in a strange bed. For a moment I felt disorientated. I tried my best to work out where I was and when it was. As my eyes started to focus I saw them… a pair of feet… and then it all started coming back.
Today will be the first time ‘Mal Pope & The Jacks’ have performed together since, well to be honest, we can’t quite remember. There are 2 explanations, one is that it was a very long time ago, the other is we are now so old our memories are not what they used to be.
This week I’ve been making the new video for my new single. The song isn’t new, but with the kindness of Elton John returning my original 1973 tapes and copyrights, and with the wonders of technology my new single features a duet with my 13 year old self.
