I’m going to write an Ian McLagan obituary,
where I’ll try to recall the name of his book.
Was it All the Rage?
I’m going to do it without the intervention,
of search engine or internet.
A summoning-up the spirit sort of exercise,
until the past reveals itself.
You know he married Keith Moon’s ex-wife.
And wrote a book called All the Rage:
oh but you know about that.
I’m going to talk about his music,
because that’s what made him tick.
Tin Soldier is nice, nice and raucous and soulful.
And Miss You, by the Rolling Stones, also featured Mac.
I’m going now,
to write.
