Quite extraordinary...

⁦@SirTimRice⁩ Could I trouble you to help by tweeting this message to your followers for the fan ownership drive currently lacking that profile we need, thank you for your time.

@Bill65612220 Happy to help Oldham Athletic. Not sure if many of my modest number of followers are football nuts but if they are - here’s a good cause.

So delighted (and relieved) that the Black Cats are on the road back to the top. Great performance great goalie. Just what the fans indeed the entire city of Sunderland deserve. @SunderlandAFC

RIP the great Vangelis. I had the honour of writing three songs with him and spending a little time with him in his studio. Beyond doubt one of the great composers of his nation and his time.

Why not penalty shootout before inevitable 0-0 draw in Wembley Finals which wd get both teams attempting to score w/more urgency in the actual game. Or one of them anyway. Plus those who only like shootouts can go home early thus easing http://N.London traffic problems.

Sorry to have got a bit behind with Podcasts but annoyingly I had to work rather hard in my almost 3 weeks in New York. (Aida and Chess) Get Onto My Cloud 66 will soon be up and running, or walking at least.

So glad that the great football club that is @SunderlandAFC are back at Wembley. And that tonight the great city of Sunderland got the success they deserve.

Thanks Teesdale Operatic Society. It is definitely one of Andrew’s greatest pieces. Nothing to do with me!

I am a great Dennis Waterman fan, particularly of his brilliance in Minder. I have the complete series on DVD so I shall start watching all over again in tribute. RIP. My late mum loved New Tricks best.

Obviously “Judas“ as a synonym of “traitor“ would not have been in use before Judas’ treachery. So in my imagined scene Jesus is simply addressing his disciple aggressively in the middle of an extremely heated argument.

Excellent book by Todd Slaughter, head of British Official Elvis Presley Fan Club. A fascinating tale.

Dare we hope that the Black Cats will make the playoffs? And then progress? The suspense….rock steady @SunderlandAFC

Just about to fly to New York for discussions about @chessthemusical and Aida. @aidatour Have left Kirsty the dog at home so I’m not confident this tweet will get many responses.

Grippingly interesting tweet about my latest podcast: 11 likes in 4 days.
Photo of my dog on a train: nearly 7000 likes in 5 hours. Next show will be Dogs: The Musical.

@BillyFuryMuseum Delighted to join his many fans in wishing the great and gracious Marty Wilde the happiest of birthdays.

And before anyone complains she is sitting on a blanket and the GWR staff and fellow passengers were all delighted to see her.
