Can't wait to get the band out to Dublin. I had such a great time when I was there with Spear of Destiny. I think I swapped my blood for Guiness.

Hi Derek! I am a Dutch bass player who has recently found your web log. That's great, because I was a great fan of your bass playing with Simple Minds (hope you don't mind raking up the past....).

Could I ask you something about your role with them? These bass parts were too elaborate and dominant to have been added afterwards. They really are basic to the songs. I mean the songs of the songs up to Don’t you forget, because to me the SM ceased to exist with this song.
In short: were the songs written on the basis of your input?

Tot mails.......

Hi Derek,
You wont remember me but we did an acoustic version of " Dont waste my time" at Langside College when we were young boys. Its Billy McLaughlin and I live in Melbourne. I went to see Jim and Charlie when they toured here last year. I dont know how I ended up on your blog but it brought back a lot of memories. Where are you living now? Back in Glasgow? I get back every couple of years and I remember being in L.A in 1983/84 and seeing your names in the theatre on Rodeo Dve but had to leave the day before you got there. Anyway, all the best. Billy
