Lead singer of Marillion, father, hippy, punk, soul singer, progressive rockstar (wtf!), defender of the faith, voice of reason in a world gone crazy...

...and now podcaster.

Join me as I talk about my life and what is rambling around in my head.

Along the way I will focus on some of the stories that have shaped my career and my life, as well as reading from my diaries and offering my take on the wider world.

Stay safe,

h

P.S I began this journey just as CoVid-19 took hold and changed our lives, possibly forever, so it seems apt to reference that in the naming of the podcast.

    Chapter 53. He doesn't know his Aztec from his Inca

    Chapter 53. He doesn't know his Aztec from his Inca

    September 1994. Mexico City.
    And after quite numerous diary extracts, and quite a lot of misplacing of possessions, the Brave Tour finally comes to an end. And what a way to finish.
    Mexico had made a real impression on me the first time around, so I was really looking forward to this trip and for once I captured it in some detail. So let's relive the first part of what turned out to be quite an event-packed few days. Packed with boxers, bangles, painters and "Bono-moments".
    And a word to the wise, always consider the possible implications before you decide to climb a pyramid when you're already 2250m above sea-level on a show-day...
    It was Aztecs.
    Toodle Pip,

    Chapter 52. Friday Night Live

    Chapter 52. Friday Night Live

    How do you celebrate the first birthday of a podcast...?
    As it happened it all came together quite nicely, a livestream of the recording session, my birthday shirt, honeyed tequila and everybody's favourite drummer.
    So cue a celebratory episode of TCD, with a bunch of your questions thrown in for good measure.
    It really has become a very special little project, and both Ant and I thank you for your warmth and support.
    love'n'toothpaste,

    Chapter 51. Sister Act (Part 2)

    Chapter 51. Sister Act (Part 2)

    And they’re back....
    It seems you are all loving our Gilly and our Sue, which is kind of fortunate bearing in mind they are back for a second bite of the apple.
    This week we get onto the ‘rockstar’ years and what life is like when your brother is jetting off all over the place. And taking himself VERY seriously. And sending postcards.
    Also stay tuned for news of the special plans in place to make one whole year of TCD a bit of an event.
    Gosh.

    Chapter 50. Sister Act (Part 1)

    Now this is something pretty special.
    Ant was finally able to arrange the long-talked-of chat with my sisters. So, please give a nice big TCD welcome to 'our Gilly and our Sue'.
    Of course I had no idea what had been said, so you can imagine my reaction to the tales of mischief perpetrated by my younger shelf. Needless to say I have no recollection of the curious incident of the dog in the garden.
    Anyway, I hope you enjoy three members of the Hogarth clan in the single episode. And if you do, then you will be pleased to know there is more to come in TCD 51.
    Lord preserve us.

    Chapter 49. Pass the mushrooms, hombre.

    Chapter 49. Pass the mushrooms, hombre.

    And that brings us around to 'the difficult second album'.
    There is no doubt that up until we began writing what would become Holidays In Eden, the honeymoon period for band and new singer had held together pretty well.
    As we headed back down to Brighton, and the slightly posher surroundings of Stanbridge Farm, the sun was (literally) shining both for us...and on us.
    Of course when we finally left there was snow on the ground. We thought we had written three nailed-on hit singles, I had discovered that rice tastes good but FEELS better and that light occasionally goes a bit goo-ey and tastes of oranges.
    But we will get to all of that in due course...
    Love'n' Kit-Kats

    Chapter 48. I thought you were supposed to be a big time rock’n’roll band?

    Chapter 48. I thought you were supposed to be a big time rock’n’roll band?

    And so it began. Those first few shows with Marillion, and me thrust into the limelight - literally front and centre.
    To finish off the story of 1989 means talking about life on stage, from the now infamous Crooked Billet to a ‘slightly less than planned for’ start in France.
    As you will hear I really enjoyed the Seasons End tour, and the unique journey that each one of the shows afforded me and the boys.
    Oh, and if you happened to stumble on a bin liner full of Paul Smith linen suits, could you let me know?
    Much obliged.
