Ian McCulloch: “I’m the second best singer ever, after Frank Sinatra”…
Ian Stephen McCulloch was born May 5, 1959 in Liverpool. Happy 56!
As a massive fan of Echo & The Bunnymen (saw them live about 25 times. Well, simply because they were/are just one of the best live bands ever) and Ian McCulloch as their magical singer/songwriter, charismatic personality, big-mouthed star and passionate performer with a superb voice, I want to hear at least these two following songs (and
the first 5 Echo albums) today…
‘Lift Me Up’ from his hardly promoted solo LP
“Pro Patria Mori” (2012). A magnificent song…
‘Rescue’ from the Bunnymen’s debut LP ‘Crocodiles’ (1980).
Timeless classic. “Is This The Blues I’m Singing…”
Antwerp, Belgium 2014 – Godlike genius
