I think Twink definitely thinks she is some kind of national treasure.

Larry Gogan was a friend of a friend. He was apparently the nicest person you could ever hope to meet in public and private.
I met Niall Quinn a couple of times and he was an absolute gentleman. He is still a legend around Sunderland aswell.

I think the thing all those lads have in common is that they probably don't see themselves as special because of who they are. Maybe that is what it comes down to Irish people don't like thier celebs to have 'notions'? I would throw Brendan Gleeson/Colm Meaney in that group. Never heard anyone give out about them.

I think that is the difference between American celebs and Irish ones. In America the celebs are expected to have notions and be fawned over.

Slightly off topic - but is it true Gogan cultivated that voice for radio, and he was not like that originally?

Larry just had an immense aura of genuineness and friendliness about him. Seemed like he had an absolute genuine love of his job too. His musical tastes were a bit mainstream pop probably for my own taste , but he was a listenable, watchable and a very likable guy..

Larry Gogan was the most inoffensive person to ever walk the earth , thats not necessarily a compliment

Oh, I know that. It's just that I wouldn't take anything he says seriously. I think him and Kevin Shields had a falling out so that's why he said it.

there's an amazing doc from the bbc on primal screams memphis tapes, and how they put their heart and soul into it and hired the best musicians in memphis and then brought it back to alan mcgee who binned it and remixed it!

(however commercially he was possibly right, but musically it was criminal)
