They call her Natasha

Former subscribers to Mark Perry and Mike Bodayle's "Fanzine" - "Beyond belief" may recall that Issue #28from Winter 2001 featured an interview with one Lou Dalgleish, who was then performing a set of EC covers under the name "They call her Natasha". Seven years have pa...

Re: Any chance of a UK tour?

FWIW, backstage after the show in Liverpool on 25 June I asked EC whether he'd be playing in England again. "Oh yes" was his reply in a tone that suggested this was a given. As has been noted, I think the de-minimis options seems to be a gig in Liverpool around the time of his mother's bir...

Re: Elvis' christening church - 'For Sale'

Thanks as usual to John for his perseverance in bringing to our attention more of Elvis' past. The church and presbytery are still showing as "available" on the Auctioneer's website. The guide price of £290,000.00 - £325,000.00 may have something to do with this. The more logical outcome w...

Very interested in this, provided we don't get too much of Il Sogno.

Has anyone else had problems with the RLPO online booking system? It won't seem to take my money!
