Simon says

Our columnist salutes his friend and label success story John Grant – whose new album, Love Is Magic, is out this month and is a further exploration of his multi-faceted creativity

John Grant has been in my life over 20 years now, and with his genius new record Love Is Magic coming out in the next few days, I thought it high time I dedicated a full page to his brilliance.

From inauspicious beginnings in 1998 when he sent me patchy demos of his first band the Czars, to now headlining at Brixton Academy in 2018, it has been a rollercoaster – and I say that with a smile on my face, because John truly is a rollercoaster junkie. And I don’t just mean emotionally. His recent birthday bash was at the legendary Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, the second-oldest amusement park in the USA – which, can you believe, opened in 1870? And it was here that John, with many great friends and family, enjoyed the 17 different rollercoaster rides over a beautiful long weekend. A fitting way to celebrate the great man’s special day.
