Step up to the Meic!
We’ve had that many ballot papers recently that I’ve forgotten how to sign my name . . . I just put an ‘X’!
But life isn’t all bad. The highlight of last week for me was a catch up over a coffee with Welsh pop legend Meic Stevens.
Not many of you would know this, but Meic was brought back to life as a baby, rescued from the sea as a child, addicted to Valium as an adult and married to a chronic schizophrenic, lurching from one crisis to another.
He survived everything life threw at him, reaching the dizzy heights of pop stardom in England and Wales.
He was described as the UK’s leading songwriter by none other than Bob Dylan.
Now in his 70s, he continues to perform live and has a loyal following.
We chatted about life, what inspires him to keep going and the joy of performing to a live audience.
You can catch Meic performing in a Welsh language show, along with me, comedians Aled Richards and Gary Slaymaker on Saturday, October 14, at Theatre Felinfach, Lampeter.
