RECOMMENDED: JUDIE TZUKE: LIVE 2012
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! People that know me also know [apart from my [obvious] love of all things ELO] that I'm also a huge fan also of that marvellous songstress and musician: JUDIE TZUKE. Earlier today; I touched base with Judie regarding her upcoming Spring 2012 UK Tour and [inevitably!] the subject of our discourse came around to ELO and by extension The Beatles. I asked Judie one or two questions and she was gracious to respond thus:
KJS: "What would be your favourite 'Beatles' track and why?
Judie: "Of course ... "Hey Jude" because it's my name and I loved it and 'The Beatles' ... I always felt it was written for me as a child but obviously I know now it wasn't ... But I sang it anyway!"
KJS: "Do you also have a fave ELO track? ... and maybe a reason for that too?"
Judie: "Well! I do remember buying: "Evil Woman" and playing it over and over. Probably a bit of hairbrush miming and dancing on the bed went on too at that time! No particular reason but that it was a memorable time in my life ... but I didn't think that this song was written for me!"
Judie is touring the UK between Friday 9th March and Monday 2nd April 2012 to promote her latest [excellent!] album: "One Tree Less".
