Edwyn Collins is a music legend, and on Channel 4 News earlier, he talked about the strokes which have affected his life, and his plans for the future. He’s slowly rebuilding his life, and I hope everything improves rapidly.
As well as being known for his song “A Girl Like You”, I particularly loved “Rip It Up”, by his band, Orange Juice, released in 1983. I even had a T-shirt back in the day which said “Rip It Up”!
Check out the interview, and the aforementioned videos beneath that:
