Postcard from London


Giles Martin and yours truly.
Yes gang, WogBlog is on the road again! Vacation part two is taking place here in London, and I lucked out twice today. I was at Abbey Road for "a quickie", when I spotted Giles Martin coming out of the building, accompanied by some people from Harmonix, the company behind The Beatles:RockBand. There was also a TV crew at hand, who were filming something or other. In the photo of Giles and me, the people in the background are in that film. I asked Giles what he was up to, and he told me that he was putting the finishing touches to the game. He expected to reveal the full track list in about a month.

Victor Spinetti and me
Then after lunch, my son and I were walking along Piccadilly when all of a sudden, Victor Spinetti came out of the Prince's Arcade. He was very kind and posed for a photo. I asked him if he was working at the moment, and he told me had just come back from five shows in America.
You'll notice I was wearing the same t-shirt as Svein Sivertsen from my last posting. These shirts were specially made for the Norwegian Wood fan club during Svein's years as President of the club.

I believe that it is humanly impossible to be more jealous than I am right now!
