Gerry Rafferty has died
Sad news, the scottish singer/songwriter Gerry Rafferty has died this tuesday 4th of january, aged 63. He had sung on The Way It Always Starts from the Local Hero movie soundtrack. Mark had played on his album Another World in 2002.
We owe him the 70's hits Baker Street (1978) and Stuck in the Middle With You.
In Gerry's memory here is the video clip of Baker street (this street is worldly known since the british writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had made his heroes Sherlock Holmes and the Docteur Watson live there) with the famous saxophone riff and the guitar solo :
Happy New Year 2011 !
I wish you a happy new year 2011, let's hope for a new MK album :-)David

Alchemy released in DVD & Blu-Ray on 10th of May
More than 25 years after this mythical gig, the official DVD & Blu-Ray release will be out the 10th May 2010. For this release the sound has been remixed in 5.1 surround by Chuck Ainlay and the image has been restored.
Hmmm, this trailer brings good memories back. Impressive picture ! You can notice that Mark's voice is different that what we used to hear.
After the double LP, the double K7, the double CD, the VHS, the Laserdic and the bootleg DVD it's decided : I'm going to buy a Blu-Ray player !Hmmmmmmm great news ! You can preorder it on amazon.
