Pretty good article on the Starsailor / Spector collaboration. Unrelated to Phil, I did like this part:
The experience with Spector has convinced Starsailor of the absolute preciousness of their often sniped-at normality. Walsh insists that "striving to make extraordinary music doesn't necessarily mean living extraordinary lives". After spells in London, the singer has moved back to quiet, ordinary Altrincham. The bassist lives with his mum in Warrington. The day we meet, Starsailor are due to play in Amsterdam with the Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger is another icon-turned-Starsailor fan). Stelfox's preparation for that one? "Cleaning my mum's windows."
...but I still don't like Starsailor. Well, maybe I'll dig "Silence is Easy."
