“The only problem other songwriters can possibly have with James Blunt,” writes Tom Robinson, “is that he’s successful.”
Tom, allow me to respond with a few words from the man himself:
From birth in a military hospital in Tidworth, to Harrow School, to Aerospace Manufacturing Engineering, to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, to The Household Cavalry, to Kosovo, to Buckingham Palace, to a recording studio in Los Angeles. How did James get from there to here? Only James Blunt’s hairdresser knows for certain, and either he isn’t talking or James cuts his own hair, and it’s up to you to join the dots – there are ten of them on the album.
I’m sure you can see what I’m getting at.
