Default Non-Urgent Enquiry for Brian - song nicknames

Hey Brian,

How's it going?? Just wondering if you ever have nicknames for songs. Moody Blues refer to one of their songs 'Isn't life Strange?' as 'Is your Wife strange' or have you had any funny working titles for any tunes.

Barring that and if not already answered any band nicknames you'd like to share? Thanks

G'day.......ok..there are some band nick names...cant tell you who they refer to but maybe you can work it out...theres R2D2,Piggy,The Genius,Pikey (who you know already is martin meredith) theres a few to be going with ..of course red red wine is known as red red whine...1 in 10 is aka 1 inch head (dont ask me why) thats all for now as im sitting here at home reading the BB while waiting for phone interviews to come in promoting our new album 'Who You Fighting For' japan and switzerland today,not all of them of course, but its that time of year where we do interviews answering mostly the same questions giving mostly the same answers but its gotta be done and every now and then you get a great journalist who inspires good answers,just inished with a swiss journalist Pierre michel Meier in Geneva..very interesting guy...ok...there we go phone ringinmg again..that will be Tokyo.bye BT
