Alexander O'Neal talks Prince, Glasgow and his new book

source

He is the Eighties soul survivor who, 40 years after taking his first baby steps in the music industry, is still going strong.


There have been knocks along the way and had Alexander O’Neal not shown the strength to come back from one early blow, delivered by none other than Prince, he would not have gone on to become one of the biggest soul and RnB singers of the Eighties and Nineties.


Tomorrow the 63-year-old rolls into Glasgow ahead of a live show at the Pavilion Theatre on Thursday night which celebrates the 30th anniversary of his biggest solo album Hearsay.

The show includes some of his greatest hits, including "Criticize" and "(What Can I Say) To Make You Love Me" and will also see O’Neal take the stage with musicians who have been lifelong friends, dating back to his early years in Mississippi and Minneapolis.


It is a chance to reconnect with his fans, reunite with his friends and continue a trip down memory lane which began when he started work on his new book, All True, Man. Needless to say, O’Neal has pulled no punches, recounting the good days and bad.


“It was all new to me,” O’Neal told Glasgow Live. “It’s the first time I have done anything like this, but I worked with a great writer, Eugene Duffy and he made the process so simple.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Happy for Alex. I can not wait to read the book when it hits the book stores or Amazon.

I´m looking forward to reading this. Back in the 80s Alex was a key figure of the Minneapolis Sound, and I´d love to read some anecdotes from those days.

I wonder if he´s going to mention some of the funnier, maybe even awkward moments of his career, like the time when he fell asleep during a show in Sweden , on a couch on stage, or when he was a participant on that wife swap show in the UK and the other guys wife had no idea who Alex was. lol

He´s always had this strong connection with Europe and the fanbase over here, and it´s nice to see that he remembers those days fondly.
