Wire reports from Virgin execs have said that McCabe recently visited Ashcroft during a recording session recently. Do you know anything about this?And this is the first I've heard about them getting back together. I seriously doubt it though...
My name is Mark Redfern and I'm the Senior Editor of Los Angeles based quarterly indie music magazine
Under the Radar. I'm e-mailing you to let you know that I interviewed Richard Ashcroft by phone for a
little over an hour recently and have written it up as an in-depth article for the new issue of Under
the Radar. I'd say it's the most in-depth American article on him for Human Conditions. He obviously
talked about the new record, but also got into the history of The Verve and the break-up of the band.
He hinted that there's a darker truth to the break-up of the band that he may reveal someday if pushed
to by false comments of other former Verve band mates. The article also features unpublished photos of
Ashcroft taken in a park/forest filled with deer. I'm a big fan of both The Verve and Ashcroft, so it
was an honor to talk to him and he was very cool. I kept hearing his son running around in the
background and asking to be let into the garden.
