RiP, Mr. Boon Gould! I was (and STILL am) a BIG fan of Level 42. Saw them in concert in Chicago when they opened for Madonna. By then he probably WASN'T with the band anymore.
Sweet home, Chicago, a city that meant a lot to this band of British outsiders schooled in blues and jazz. Boon Gould was a songwriter in the band as well as fulfilling his guitar duties, but reportedly suffered severely from stage anxiety, like Robbie Robertson, Andy Partridge, Mary Margaret O'Hara and so many other artists, such is life.
"Movies are the enemy of the novel because they are replacing novels. Novelists shouldn’t write for the movies, unless, of course, they discover they’re no good at writing novels." - John Irving
