Well, there's a Craig thread so why not a guy thread? Very Happy

I don't know what I should write other than

- great singer (BEAUTIFUL touching voice)
- great songwriter (BEAUTIFUL touching lyrics)
- great man (just BEAUTIFUL Embarassed) In my opinion. I don't like gym guys a lot. And his "shifting weigth" ;-) fits soooo perfectly to his voice (or the other way round!)

I love you

..agreed. Being someone who likes the lyrical meaning of songs,
I love not only the poetry, but the gritiness and honesty of them.

Meeting him is even better than imagining what it's like to meet him.

God, I sound gay again.

There's something hugely attractive about a big, bluff, northern bloke singing achingly beautiful lyrics. He is, in my opinion, the most talented lyricist that this country has ever produced (which is a high accoldade from me - being a devoted Morrissey fan). Part of me would love to meet him - but I guess one should never meet ones heroes for fear that they will either disappoint or dislike you!

You should not be concerned about meeting Guy, very down to earth, very happy to talk to fans, and I think he enjoys it as well. Though when we met him, we were all totally arseholed.

That's certainly how he comes across. But fear I may be an incoherent imbecile in his presence!

Well, I was, he didn't seem to mind.

Mind you, like I said, so was he.

This is what he sang that night.

Guy is a real gent, as are all the band. I did think he had the voice of an angel, admittedly one who'd lived a little, but having seen that video I now know he's very human after all! Smile

I think so too. There are only a few singers that could sing the telephone book and I would be touched.
Guy's one of them!
