Interview with Swedish host Kenny (2008)
« on: January 10, 2024, 10:56:01 AM »
I'm sure it's been posted here before, but I wasn't able to find it. I have watched this a few times many years ago, and it is one of my favorite interviews with Mark. He's in such a great mood and very relaxed. I just wanted to post it (again?) to reminisce a little.

It got interesting when he mentioned about being married with Kitty and very happy and stable, it looked like he was to mention how bad was with Lourdes but then he gets politically correct, lol

Yes, that was the most interesting for me as well. Also the guy "playing" at the wrong Albany!

Well, the original Albany doesn't exist anymore as it burned down many years ago, but the place where this Albany stands is where the old Albany used to be.

Yes I know (thanks to your book!), I just thought it was funny that they were pretending it was the same place, even finding one of MK's hairs, now that would be a rare item!

One of the nicest things of this videos is that, after being outside British Grove and wondering how it would be inside, with the way this is recorded you can picture very well how it is from the door till the roof, lol, you can see them going throught the entrance, to studio 1, the stairs, the office up... the only thing you can't see here is Studio 2 and the kitchen, well, of course, the baths, LOL

I remember seeing a plan many years ago but this is more visual.

Kenny is almost a little corny, don't if deliberately so, but I love how Mark is just playing along.

Don't know about the music, but you can feel the pain when Mark acknowledges he's slow. It's like daaaaaamn... He's done quite a lot of good things though despite being slow.
