This clip shows two things that most of have forgotten -



Marrianne Faithful really could sing, which is why she has made over twenty albums in her career.

And what a cosmically gorgeous looking woman she was - yes some people are actually born with lips like that - no Botox!!

Thanks for that post Tony. Cheered me no end :-(.:x
Dunno what it is with The Ballard Of Lucy Jordon but it seems to have an affect on the ladies ( of a certain age ) ;-)
Cheeky bisom .
LOL.
I remember Girl on a Motorcycle - she wears a leather suit with a zip down the front and marches in to see her lover saying "peel me". Shame she doesn't turn the handlebars when she corners - you can tell she's really on the back of a lorry.

naomi - // AH, thank you for answering my question. //

You are most welcome.

//Amazing that with no formal credentials you are able to gain access to the rich and famous so easily ... //

You make me sound like a peasant who has bluffed his way into the palace to look at the king!

In my profession, virtually no witer has formal qualificiations.

What editors require is - in no particular order - an understanding of the subject, the ability to work alone, tenacity, a thick skin, an ability to write to style and length, and reliability.

You pick those up with experience, not qualifications.

// ... but I wonder why you don't sell the results of your labour to big name publications. Such articles are much sought after and bring in a rather lucrative income. Something you might want to consider. //

Major magazines and certainly national papers are closed shops.

They have their own writers, and they can gain access to anyone they want, so freelance work is really really hard to get - the only opportunity is getting something they can't, or can't at the time.

I offered my MF piece to the Sunday Times for their Day In The Life column - they declined.
AH, I didn't mention formal qualifications - I said credentials. For example if you went along with a BBC press card ... you see what I'm saying? And thanks for the lesson... quite unnecessary I assure you. ;o)

Good luck.

My apologies - I minsterpreted your point.

In terms of credentials, they are not required because virtually all my interviews are pre-arranged, so i am expected. I do however carry business cards with my contact details on, which I give to the person I am interviewing, in case of queries later on.

For major touring bands, where security is employed, I am usually issued with an appropriate pass to ensure access to required areas - this also applies to festivals.

The one everyone wants is the coveted 'AAA' - 'Access All Areas' but these are given only to people who actually need them. I have had my share, but they are only given to people classed as 'working'.

Guests and so on may have a pass that will give them access backstage only after the show has ended, or a pass that admits them to the audtiorium only.
