Why Phil Collins met Paul McCartney and thought: ‘You f—‘

October 20, 2016 0

From the Telegraph They are musical giants. Phil Collins and Paul McCartney are the only two living musicians – Michael Jackson was the third – to have sold more than 100 million records both as a solo artist and as part of a band. And yet when the pair met, Collins was distinctly unimpressed. The 65-year-old Genesis frontman, who announced this week that he was coming out of retirement, spoke of his shock when he came face to face with the former Beatle. “I’ve got to preface this by saying McCartney was one of my heroes,” he told The Sunday Times. “But he has this thing when he’s talking to you, where he makes you feel: [putting on a condescending Scouse accent] ‘I know this must be hard for you, because I’m a Beatle. I’m Paul McCartney and it must be very hard for you to actually be holding a conversation with me.’” “I met him when I was working at the Buckingham Palace party at the palace thing back in 2002. “McCartney came up with Heather Mills and I had a first edition of The Beatles by Hunter Davies and I said, ‘Hey Paul, do you mind signing this […]

How Do You Make A Vinyl Record Levitate?

October 19, 2016 0

Starter company Mag-Lev Audio have developed a turntable that uses magnets to suspend your record in mid-air, thereby rendering the playback free of any interruption from vibration – NICE! If you can get past the naff, oh-so-upwardly-mobile video, you have to admit it’s an impressive looking piece of kit. If the turntable isn’t in use it is supported by four feet which retract as soon as you start playing a record – cool eh? What happens if there’s a power cut I hear you ask, does the record plummet? No, they’ve thought of that, there’s an emergency power supply which kicks in should that happen. This super cool turntable is MAG-LEV Audio’s first product, and at this stage is up on crowdfunding website ‘Kickstarter’, it is estimated that the product will be available from retail stores in August 2017 for around $1400 – you can find out more here If you’re looking for vinyl records (not necessarily to suspend in mid-air!), then be sure to check for a huge range of rarities, imports, new releases, collectables, limited editions and more
