I was re-reading Wreckless Eric’s great book ‘A Dysfunctional Success’. He tells of how Stiff Records decided that he could not write tunes (I beg your pardon?) and so they brought in Martin Page and Brian Fairweather to help him out. This must be for Big Smash. It was a thoroughly dispirating experience for Wreckless and the result not what he wanted……….
Anyway the Page Fairweather duo (they had matching baseball jackets with ‘Fairweather Page’ on the back – OMG) wer later responsible for “We Built This City On Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
‘Nuff Said (as Stan the Man says) they should be burnt at a stake!
