I have been thinking a lot today about Fleetwood Mac, rather Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac and more specifically Danny Kirwan, who along with Scott Walker (more on this to come soon!) is my current vintage crush. I'm such a sucker for a pair of baby blues poking out from under a floppy fringe. Danny is said to have been an emotional, quite neurotic young man at the time, and was so inspired when playing it would bring him to tears. Forget the weeping though, I do like a chap in a nice tight sweater! I wish I could have found some better pics...
Danny's story is though a rather sad one, after leaving the band in the early 70s and releasing a couple of solo albums he sadly succumbed to the all to familiar downward spiral of alcoholism and has spent the last 30 odd years living in homeless shelters, he was last tracked down a few years ago to a specialist alcoholics clinic in South London.
Like Crying is my favourite song of his and it's been in my head all day, and pretty much sums up how I have been feeling today. I usually feel super depressed on my birthday but this year I was rather cheerful for this first time in years, I think actually the b'day blues have been delayed a week and they've really got to me today.
* Damn you pms, somebody pass me a bar of green & blacks....
So, who are everyone else's current crushes?
