Hugh Cornwell

The Stranglers’ Hugh Cornwell born 1949.  That makes him one year younger than my late older brother!  I’ve seen Hugh Cornwell play live, both with The Stranglers and as a solo act.  He signed some of my vinyl, and was very gracious about it.  I actually like some of his post-early 80’s solo works.

The last studio album was “Hooverdam”, which I highly recommend.  The CD is a CD + DVD package, and he was selling an LP of it at one of the shows I was lucky enough to see.  On either side of that one, you get multiple-disc live sets, which are generally pretty good.

Thanks for the good stuff, Mr. Cornwell!
