Mac & Boris

 Ian McLagan was the keyboard player with the Small Faces and Faces, then went on as a backing player with The Rolling Stones. Back in 60’s, Mac went to Art School in London, the same Art School Norman B attended a year or so later. Earlier this year, Mac and Norman ran into each backstage at a charity event in Seattle, where the former Small Faces member suggested the two silver-haired ex-art students should get together for what Mac describes as a cozy, fireside chat. On the next edition of Life Elsewhere, you’ll hear Part One of Norman B’s exclusive interview with Ian McLagan recounting his discovery of the blues and joining the Small Faces. Life in the quintessential Mod band and the crazy non-stop routine of a pop star. He talks about the beginning and the end of Faces and gives us a peak into what it was like recording with The Rolling Stones plus the often unglamorous life of being on the road with the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band. Mac offers his opinions on Punk, keyboard players he admires and his favorite keyboards. He recounts the ups and the downs, the truths and the untruths of rock ‘n’ roll and why his muse was so crucial in his life. McLagan discusses his latest album United States and his currant musical cohorts The Bump Band, based out of his adopted home of Austin, Texas.

Boris Johnson was born one year before the death of the subject of his new book, The Churchill Factor: How One Man Made History. The outspoken and sometimes controversial Mayor of London had no living experience of the idiosyncratic politician, so why the fascination with Winston Churchill? Does Boris offer a new perspective on Britain’s revered statesman? Norman B invites you to join in the conversation by emailing your questions for Boris Johnson to: info (at) lifeelsewhere (dot) co
