As I was going through the G archives compiling my first coffee table book (which is coming along fabulously – and more details will be forthcoming – so stay tuned!), I happened upon a clip of the wonderfully underrated singer Duffy singing “Mercy” (Acoustic) at Virgin Megastore (RIP) in New York on May 13, 2008.  Duffy performed a few songs that day and when I met her afterwards, she was seriously one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.  I wish her all the best, and please come back from hiatus!

Enjoy my lovelies!


Virgin Megastore’s Sad Last Days

RIP Virgin Megastore

RIP Virgin Megastore

This weekend is the final 3 days before the last remaining Virgin Megastore in New York’s Union Square closes its doors forever.  Sure their prices are up to 80% off, but the good stuff is long gone. It is like visiting a terminally ill person, where you really want to do something to help, but it’s too late. The closing of Virgin symbolizes the passing of the torch from physical goods to digital media.  A very sad day for music lovers, but when when door closes another one opens.  I, for one will really miss you Virgin Megastore.  Your stores worldwide have provided me hours of pleasure, discovering new music, in store events, a bargain or 2 and lots of smiles.  May you rest in peace!
