Odd things that happened around this time...
  • We bought something in a charity auction - a platinum disc awarded to Ed Bicknell (manager of Dire Straits) in acknowledgement of Mark Knopfler's contribution to the Big River album, after 300,000 copies were sold. One day we will get it photographed and add it to the site.
  • Interview in the Mirror 27 November.
  • Interview in News of the World on 21 November.
  • Good interview and pictures in "OK!" magazine dated 26 November.

  • Jimmy appeared briefly on TV on Saturday 9 October during the opening of a sporting event in Newcastle (we missed it but were told).

  • The official tour site was http://www.jimmynailtour.com where you could order tickets to the gigs as well as CDs. They used (with our permission) some of the graphics from this site!

  • We had 2 queries from French TV journalists that wanted to do a feature on Jimmy Nail for MCMTV - sorry we couldn't help.
