Lindsey autobiography coming soon?
 
I received an interesting message on my blog 2 days ago: someone claiming to be an art researcher was inquiring about a specific photo from the archive for the cover art of forthcoming autobiography on Lindsey. I told her he photo was by Herbert Worthington and that it was scanned from the Rumours boxset booklet. She then told me that she had tried to get in touch with his estate over another photo but that was unsuccesful, so probably no HWW photo on the cover. I suggested she tried Sam Emerson, as he also took great photo's of him in the 1970's and he's very much alive and probably easier to get in touch with.
She specifically said autobiography, doesn't that mean that the person themselves is writing it? Because if someone else wrote it about him without his cooperation it would be a biography? English is not my first language so I'm not completely sure about that. Wouldn't that be interesting, Lindsey writing his own story?!

That's interesting. Does indeed sound like an autobiography. Wow!
I wonder why the Herb Worthington estate would have said 'No'

HomerMcvie 09-27-2020 12:40 AM

Omg. He should RIP THEM A NEW ONE. Especially $tevie and Dick.

However, I'll bet y'all ANYTHING, that part of his settlement was agreeing that nothing like that could happen.

We can dream, though.

Or no one called back. It's possible that the "estate" doesn't currently have anyone manning the phones? In These Strange Times, a lot of offices and pseudo-offices are closed.

Lindsey should forget the autobiography idea and put out a book of songs, stories, and poems, against a backdrop of Celtic folklore.

...this is the story about a Welsh Princess called Diane

According to Richard Dashut, Lindsey has a photographic memory. He remembers everything. But he never had much to say about the Australia story where he kicked Stevie onstage during Rhiannon. LOL. I would love an autobiography from Lindsey. Yes, that would mean he was writing it.

I think we would get more of the truth from him, than from anyone else in the band.

I would be surprised if Lindseyís settlement agreement contained a non-disparagement clause. I think he can say what he wants.

OMG, the Tango in the night chapter would be incredible. What he did with altering his voice to sound like Stevie, altering the speed of her voice on tracks, and what he had to deal with during the entire process... Mick buying drugs in his driveway, Stevie showing up late and drunk, and the meltdown at Christine's house.

PLEASE PLEASE let this be true

Exactly! Those are the stories I'd love to hear the most. All his hard work during Tango, covering for the drunky and druggie pair that were Mick and $tevie during that time. And all that while trying to make an album.
No wonder he walked out the moment his work was done. To tour with that people would have been insane.

I hope he uses an editor or it will be 5000 pages and only go to 1987.

Chapter 14: Tango in the fright

Jondalar 10-01-2020 05:36 AM

He is going to destroy Stevie and Mick and they deserve it.

Or bore them to death, more likely.

$tevie probably thinks he's gonna tell all those romantic stories she's still fantasizing about :lol::lol::lol: :]:]

Eddie Van Halen, 65.

We still have our guy. I guess that is all that matters.

Every day someone dies. Then in 15-20 years it will be us.

sleepless child 10-07-2020 08:12 AM

I am very sad about Eddie's passing. What a wonderful talent. Such a loss

A book of transcribed Lindsey interviewspeak would indeed be a slow read.

From what little I know about Lindsey, I don't see him as someone who likes to write his autobiography. But I may be wrong. Definitely it would be very interesting to read it.

If he decides to write it, I hope he just write the truth, and as objective as possible. I would be dissapointed if he uses the book as a gun to intentionally destroy anyone. I expect the best of him. Just the truth, admitting own mistakes, and telling us other's mistakes, the actual episodes, with no exageration, gossip or offenses.

In the butter, in the bread.

After Phantom and Hamilton, A Little Night Music is my favorite sound track.

I am beyond shocked. Iím no musical theater expert but these first two are not at all enjoyable to me.

Personal favs are Hair, Godspell, JCS, and Closer to Heaven.

If he is writing his memoirs, I do hope he has a very involved editor and/or ghost writer. As valuable as Lindsey’s perspective would be, he tends to sound rehearsed and formal, as if he were trying to stick to a script about cycles and changes and profoundness and craft so as not to lose his bottle talking about the other four.

Oh, my Fringe friend. We have now parted ways and are on divergent paths, much like Lindsey and Stevie.

There is a point when the Phantom hears Christine Daae talking. He thought she cared for him, but discovers she is plotting to trap him and when that realization hits he tearfully trills, "Christine. Christ-ine." I sing that line often to our very own Christine, who has broken my heart.

Ah the kind of detail Joel Schumacher mucked up. Beautiful. Redeemed.

michelej1 10-15-2020 02:19 PM

Oh no. Schumacher never crossed my mind. I have seen the play many times. In London, in New York, but mostly in Los Angeles. It came to the Pantages every year.
