He gives us a lot of inside info — you know — This is how it is and that is how it is! C: This group is democratic. It would be a different type of thing if there was one particular leader. It’s probably a lot easier to be a dictator. Look at Patti Smith — she calls the shots and her band is really devoted to her so I’m sure they don’t object.

Something like the Telegram week-end colour supplement? Anyway, she’s the only singer to have her picture on the front except McCartney. p22 V7N2 1979 D: I love London.

Like Jonathan Richmond is doing. We would like to do some acoustic things later on. Debbie doesn’t want to do any more photographs but agrees to be photographed with Chris on the bed. C: D: C: D: We can do a Lennon and Yoko.
