A great interview as always. Cant wait for the new album next week. Although the songs are covers CdeB makes them his own as was also apparent on the Beautiful Dreams Album. Have very fond memories of CdeB, I was introduced to him on Surprise Surprise back in 1994 and have the video to prove it, something I will always treasure. He is such a down to earth person and will always have a special place in my heart!! Long live Chris de Burgh!!
