Driving in UK has been a revelation. It has been many years since I drove here and I was keen to know how the Motorways worked as well as the romantic minor roads. It was romantic minor roads for the first hour or so till we hit the M6 heading north.
Cue Paul McCartney; Helen Wheels.
We were driving north along the M6, Paul was singing about a band taking the road from Glasgow to London. I just kept singing
“M6 south down to Liverpool where they play that west coast sound.”
Listen to the song. I find it fascinating that it comes from the Band on the Run album sessions and was recorded in Lagos Nigeria.
