I've seen hundreds of bands and solo artists over the years, and witnessed some brilliant moments, but last night I experienced the most sonically brilliant vocal performance I have EVER heard live!

The whole gig was great but for one song "Streched on your grave" it was jaw-droppingly STUNNING! Sinead O'Connor may not be everyone's cup of tea, but what a voice. Her records cannot even begin to compare to what she can do LIVE (where it matters!!!). No music just pure vocal..................................

“When I sing, it’s the most solitary state: just me, and the microphone, and the holy spirit. It’s not about notes or scales, it’s all about emotion. You must be in the song, see the picture and tell the story. If this room burst into flames, you could sing 'fire!’ at the highest octave of your voice, you’d go to a place you can’t reach any other time.

“I’m on fire when I’m singing, I’m completely in character, I use my sense memories, and every syllable of it is meant. It’s a very special thing.

“Nobody gets between me and my microphone.”

Sinead O'Connor told me I'd taken her seat once. There was a full row to my left with not a person in sight, numerous empty seats around us (front and back), the evening was practically over (Lee Perry @ The Royal Festival Hall), and she got arsey because I'd taken her place.
