If you were to make a foursome for dinner with three famous (living) people from the world of music, whom would you invite?
Rules ----It should be a 'foursome' ie one of the same se x and two of the opposite s ex to yourself.

I put mine in as Alfred Brendel, Tasmin Little and Joanne McGregor.

Interesting idea... mine would be more from the rock genre...

Paul Rodgers, Roger Chapman (both terrific singers) and Suzi Quatro - she's grerat on Radio 2.

Do we have to add what we would have to eat - does the food have to link in ?

Well we could suggest a menu as well ! Your tastes are obviously quite different to mine, in musicians at least! smile.gif
So to eat I'd start with Confit of duck, then a slow roasted lamb shank with a rosemary flavoured gravy, maybe Creme Brulee as a dessert.

We'd start with Devil Gate Kidneys, Chili con Carne for main course, and pavlova (my favourite) for desert - and it would all be 'Alright Now'!

I'm having real trouble thinking of my third guest...the first two were easy...I'm tempted to a recorderist for my fourth, so I could get a quick lesson from them...

Stevie Nicks, Philip Glass and...oh...erm...I know, Hugh Laurie (hey, he plays in a band, so I'm going to count him as a musician!)

I have no idea what we'd eat, it'd probably involve yorkshire pudding at some point, pancakes at another, and there would have to be chocolate.

Philip Glass, good Lord, do your really like his music or just him ??
You need to make a foursome so you need another female!

(PS I am driving to B. Stortford this afternoon, my daughter lives in Thorley Park, hope the weather is better than it is here!)

Oh, I thought I was the fourth person, i.e. three guests. And as I'm female I invite 1 other female (Stevie - ah, did you think she was male?) and two males (Philip and Hugh).

I do honestly really like Philip Glass' music. I've not done any of the opera stuff yet - opera in general is not really my bag - but the symphonies, string quartets, soundtracks, etc I do like.

Well, I'd go out for a meal with Delta Goodrem, Jonny Wilkinson (he plays the guitar and piano, so I'll count him in as a muscian!) and Will Martin!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif If only!! ohmy.gif tongue.gif smile.gif

Hmm, interesting...
Well, if I was going folk-y, it would have to be Anna Esslemont, Cormac Byrne and Seth Lakeman - all amazing folk musicians who I think I could learn alot from and would be interesting to talk to. Anna Esslemont is also one of my all-time heros.
