Facebook Works For Me
My first Facebook commission is on the newsstands this week. A guy called Andrew from Word magazine tracked me down through that famous social networking site and used their webmail facility to ask me would I like to write something for the magazine. I used the same channel to tell him yes, I’d be happy to and then he delivered the editorial brief down the lines. So now you can read the results in their issue with the Springsteen cover.
My piece sits in a section called ‘My Record Company Hell’. You see, I was once a press officer for Warner Records in London and had the misfortune to work for the likes of Motley Crue, Robert Plant and Brigitte Nielsen. So I dredged up all of the unhappy memories and hurled them at the Word team. Perhaps wisely, they took out a few of the names and the dodgy storylines, but I think it’s still an interesting read. On some other occasion, I promise I’ll write about the SS uniforms, the appalling farewell message and the day that Madonna’s sister took me to lunch.
