MusingMuso Posted December 31, 2006 Share Posted December 31, 2006 I don't know too many celebrities, and I don't feel deprived; though I once got one of those "if looks could kill" glares from Jose Lawrence, when I gave a her a light and almost set fire to her. I also met the late Kenny Everett, George Michael, "Boy" George, Andy Bell ("Erasure") under varied or strange circumstances, but other than putting Peter Cook up for the night when he collapsed in a drunken heap, I could count the rest on the fingers of one hand. However, I see that organists now have their very own celebrity, and I am not referring to John "Boggy" Marsh on the Wogan Show or "Mr Organist Entertains," Nigel Ogden. No.....I give you.......ladies and gentlemen.....the incomparible and larger-than-life....Jo Brand. Jo Brand is taking organ lessons, and is known to love the music of Bach especially. She's the only celebrity/organist of whom I am aware, since the demise of the great Dudley Moor. Are there others, I wonder? If Jo Brand gets good enough, perhaps I could arrange for her to give a Bach concert at church, and I could do the comedy interludes. MM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
