BE MY HUSBAND ~






ANTONY & THE JOHNSONS




antony and the Johnsons by Susan Arnold on Grooveshark





Antony Hegarty was born in Chichester, West Sussex, England, UK, in 1971.

Block out all knowledge — in other words go blank and float — and receive the sounds of Antony:
 an aura who seems vocally out of Pavarotti and whales calling.
 No judgements. No conclusions. Allowance.

Bob,

Thanks for this. I first heard him, I think, with his songs in the movie I'm Not There. Knock, knock, knocking…

Mike,

It was Rufus Wainwright who said, something like: Antony was the greatest singer who ever lived.
I love courageous comments. And some days, in some periods of the day and night, I agree with Rufus Wainwright.

All I know is — I feel like I'm either in a birth canal, or am pushing my birth canal, listening to Antony.

Newest year, Bob
