We talked about the breakup of our marriage several years ago, and he said he had been devasted when we split up. "I didn't think you liked me very much" I said. "I didn't know how I felt till you left me” he said.
I still have my guitar. It is hanging on my wall and I must start playing it again now that I have the time. It was given to me by an American called Bunky Knudsen CEO of General Motors who we visited in Detroit when we went over to see John DeLaurion who was then his right hand man and prodigy. John was about to get married again and asked Barry and I to write a song about his bride Kelly which we did. He arranged for us to record "I Love You Kelly" at one of the huge Tamla Motown studios. There was just me and my guitar in a tiny corner of this vast studio with a microphone putting down the music and then Barry and I sang harmonies on it.It was sung at John and Kelly's wedding.
This video clip was recorded in 1969 and features me and Barry singing When You Do What You're Doing which was released on MCA records.
We had had a row in the dressing room just before we recorded this video and it was hard to look lovingly at each other! I think I did better than Barry!
