BETWEEN THE BARS

—“””It’s not a love song, exactly, and it’s not a song about addiction, exactly. “Between the Bars” is about the ways in which protecting somebody you love turns into the need to control that person.”””

—“it’s really a love song written from alcohol to Elliott”

–“First, and most obviously, they’re the bars within which the speaker/singer is drinking. Second, they are the bars of the musical composition he is dedicating to that endeavor. Finally, they are the bars of the prison he is metaphorically creating for himself, and might, someday, have to face in a literal way.””

and many more interpretations……..

cou cou update!

After some fairytale days in Paris which stirrrrred my imagination and some crazy scheduled rehearsals in Antwerp which interestingly enough tested my physical strength, now Brrrrrussels, back to base – as stable as that can be, finishing my new book which is going to be a cocktail of poetry, photography, drawings and short stories… Typing next to the flowers from yesterday’s concert. Thank you Stadsschouwburg Sint-Niklaas for a warm applause and for embracing our musical enthusiasm!

In the meantime, this week I am meeting some exceptionally talented people for a new project for which I will be announcing news soon.
Until then, have nice, warrrrm days and take care!
PS. I visited Morrison’ s  last house at Père Lachaise, thank god you can still have a little something or nothing from him!
