Yesterday, for the first time in a while I was playing Spooky Tooth's 'Spooky Two' in the car. I played it in the car again today. This and their first album are two of my favourite albums. Tonight I was sitting in a pub in Richmond, with my dear friend Steve Hyams, talking about Spooky Tooth. The last few times Steve and I have met Jimmy Miller seems to come up a lot in our conversations. One of the most important influences on the way rock music sounded in the early 70s, it's a privilege to be able to hear about Jimmy Miller from somebody who knew him. More about Jimmy Miller later, when Steve tells some stories.
