Yesterday Beady Eye were in Milan again and confirmed what we anticipated: they will play (their album Different gear still speeding) in Venice @ 3-days-Heineken festival (Manchester City sponsor), that is Venezia, Saint Marco lion city :), on 9 June, that is Pretty Green 2nd birthday and also my birthday.
That day there will be also Coldplay, Cesare Cremonini and other bands (Echo & The Bunnymen, We Are Scientists).
Usually I never do anything special for my birthday, I never celebrate, but this could be really different (different year, now celebrating :)
It was said also on Twitter by Cremonini, the Italian singer whose "Mondo" (world) was the song of the summer 2010 in Italy, saying "amiamo l'Inghilterra, crediamo nell'eternità", we love England, we believe in eternity.
Meanwhile, during the Beady Eye tour, Liam is dedicating the song Man of Misery to the "Pretty Green lovers".



you've got your ticket to ride :)

meeting Beady Eye again in Milan, on 28 March for a tv programme, Top of the Pops. 
If you want to come, let me know (marco@miamilan.com) 

see the part around 0:54 :) 

Beady Pretty Italy. Now it's spring, beautiful sun in these days. Remember the Pretty Green Italy blog (but of course it's not only about Italy), where are the main posts about it since the beginning of Pretty Green (11 March 2009 in Milan, the 2nd "birthday" was some days ago, though Pretty Green officially celebrates its birthdays on the official launch day, 9 June, that is also my birthday), so it's easier to read the articles about it, with less stuff around, bigger images, etc.
soon I'm gonna remove the "blogspot" and add more old stuff and make some changes, as in a few time there's gonna be a shop in Milan too (let's say months...first New York and Japan, they're far away so they need a shop there). You know, posts, comments and all can be easily "transferred" from a web to another one.

In a day of English rain... :)
During the whole Beady Eye concert in Milano (@ Alcatraz), Liam Gallagher was wearing Italy flag!! never seen this. He looked like Superman with a cloak. He was very thrilled and even came off the stage near the people to touch him. There were even girls telling me to give him their bra ^_^ and to stay on the front row they even wanted to pay me, lol. Some even wanted to take a photo with me :D. The concert was a struggle, Italians are mad for them.
More photos, stuff and videos soon


very elegant... new Pretty Green jacket soon :)
Liam said you're going to pull a really nice-looking girl if you wear Pretty Green :)

you can watch 3 videos @ Radio Deejay clicking here

he was singing great. Video of mine on the front row (+many photographers)







you've been fucking bollocks ^_^, have a nice holiday, you deserve it :)


RTL 102.5
They also say Millionaire is the 2nd single and they're making the video while travelling from Italy to Spain

It's almost Italy's 150th anniversary (17 March, at midnight after Beady Eye's concert here), national holiday. A very old history but also a very young country.

By the way, about celebrating: from 4 to 6 March, "Italia beer festival Milano" @ Palasharp, you can taste hundreds of beers (and eat :), cheese, cakes, salted pork meats, etc.). 
Bring the Light: "I'm taking you drinking" :)

Photo in Milan with a certain Liam Gallagher some days ago at Virgin radio.
Half week, Beady Eye are 1. in the international chart, most wanted in the world :)
It's some time we don't create a competition eh? It's about time :)
I've seen there are some around (on radios & sites), to win the Beady Eye concert in Milan.
I know there are people who are still looking for a ticket, as Beady Eye are playing only in small venues, and as you know in England the tickets were sold out in 25 minutes. So this competition is useful also to see the situation now.
I think there should be more competitions around, also in other countries, and we should exhange little holidays :) ("it's about time that your mind took a holiday, you're all grown up, don't you ever wanna play?" (competitions :) - Four Letter Word). By the way, I wrote a little letter to Liam :), there was too much to say, and I've seen he was reading it.
We'll see if there's also a chance to meet Beady Eye again, in the backstage, or at the hotel, or club-restaurant again, or pub or some other place, as some radio/television. Last time I gave my phone number to Liam, "I'm here if you wanna call", lol (new song). In fact, when I left him, later I received a phone call but I lost it, didn't ask if it was him trying to call. As you know he uses the computer very much and visits Oasisblues :)
So here's our simple question:
which are the 2 missing words in this Beady Eye song?

You’re giving it another try
staring at the deep XXXX XXX
and you say to the driver, just drive
'cause you’ve never felt so alive


a) beady eye
b) blue sky
c) apple pie

send your answer to marco@miamilan.com
then we'll make a draw. I'll call Noel for that :), after the FA Cup draw he's an expert.

-14 days to Beady Eye concert.
here in Milan sunlight they were also talking about "the passion of the great Italian crowd, here it's a long experience for the fans".
here are the other songs not included in the previous post
dreamers of dreams, the dream, McQueen (used to drive a Ford Mustang), Pretty Green, Hamilton, McLaren 2011 number 3three, Formula One circus, F1 rocks Milan @ Alcatraz, Monza, Ford (against Ferrari last week), one of the cars I drove on Monza circuit, a driver's dream, in Milan Gem+Ford last week :)


dedicated to Manchester City, Mario Balotelli, Melissa, Roberto Mancini, etc.
Mario car not speeding :), throwing away Inter shirt and going to Manchester (station :), benvenuti a (welcome to) Manchester, number 45, vinyl 45, the girls, standing on the edge, "so many people", Milan's Berlusconi-produced "Blue Moon rising" film, Pretty Green to sponsor City :), the "rossoneri" City colours, all the taxis, restaurants (crucial places), Paolo Maldini, Milan San Siro stadium (outside similar to City's COMS), Liam's gift the blue cachemire Pretty Green pullover, and Mario coming back to Milan soon... (on the right side ;) ..."nothing ever lasts forever"...


and Millionaire, very ManCity title :)
"Sweet Salvador, the shadows painted and the light he saw, the way I see it now so clear, like diamonds on the water"... 
As the exclusive Dalì art show in Milan, 'The dream is getting closer' (with the first cinema sex symbol Mae West room for the first time, with her eyes hanged on the wall in two frames), Beady Eye album is all about dreams, and it's even written on the cover and in some songs titles.
A review said: "...delivers a zestful acoustic twang and eyebrow-raising lyrical references to the Catalonian town Figueres and its most famous son, Salvador Dali". Those are the places I go before reaching my Minorca island of my 2nd Morning Son video here at the bottom.

this a short song (it's simple, it doesn't want to be great...but it's nice because it's simple), so I made a brief summary: if it's years you're following me, you already know. I put: 
groupies, (my) Liam's tambourine, Liam playing guitar (and here it means that now he can do all by himself, and also write a great song as Morning Son, probably the best one on the album), now a guitar belongs to him too, then a couple of guitars of mine, the famous butterfly of August 2009 when in Milan we were waiting for the last Oasis concert ever, but that "peacock" butterfly came to me as to announce the upcoming news... ...she has eyes on her wings, in fact Beady Eye were about to start... and last summer she came again, lol ("forever I'll be be your side")... I say "she" because in Italian butterfly is feminine, "la farfalla". Wonderwall film again, with butterflies and a woman who looks like Mae West from Dali. This song ends with "until the dream is real".
Then of course something about speeding :), "forever I'll be by your side", then a girl fan of Oasis ("shiiine") with a Beatles strawberry... Video ending at the seaside (last week Noel said he hates seaside, lol), as Beady Eye album ends with the sound of the sea (Morning Son)

I made this other video for my favourite Beady Eye song, the Morning Son (could be also: "Morning sun... has rose"), written by Liam (seaside & seagulls sounds as in Weller's English rose), with images from my favourite place, Minorca, an island with many British characteristics (its history, beating the french, palaces, etc.) and seaside similar to the Italian.
There's a nice atmosphere there, as in a dream (word repeated in Beady Eye album), not only when you drink, lol. It's the place where I fell on a cactus :), as Lindsay Lohan when drunk (you remember the old post). There's a typical vegetation, similar to that one in Beady Eye cover image :)
It's a very peaceful place (where Eric Clapton has a house and also the mother of Elton John ahaha), very different from another island close to here, Ibiza (where Noel and Sara first met), full of discos. But, Minorca has the most beautiful disco in Europe, built in a cave, by the sea.
In the video of Beady Eye in Milan in the sun, Liam said that if Beady Eye were a car (different gear, still speeding :), they could be an old Mini from the '60s (that car was also in The Italian Job film). So here it is in my video.
I also put the instrument played by my father in churches, the organ.
Usually I go to Minorca by the Salvador Dali train (as that previous Dali quote for Beady Eye, the 'dream is getting closer' show in Milan) travelling Milan-Barcelona, very adventurous travel :), so I can always visit my favourite city and take the ship to Minorca travelling by night, and arriving at dawn in the morning sun, you should try to understand the big emotion when you see a place you love coming closer, as Cristoforo Colombo discovering America :)
Yesterday I said: french fries are not french but from Belgium. And here, Minorca is also the place of mayonnaise (abbreviated: mayo, as Mayo region in Ireland where the Gallagher parents come from :), that is not french, they stole it from here (name from the capital Mahon -> mahonesa, there's a long story to tell).

It's also the place where McLaren used to test the cars (when it was allowed in the rules)

..... Northern Italy anthem: Va pensiero (Go, thought, on golden wings) by Verdi (from Nabucco)








"L'Italia è la casa spirituale degli Oasis.
I ragazzi italiani sono come me, molto passionali.
4 elementi li contraddistinguono: il calcio, la musica, la famiglia e l'amore per l'eleganza. I miei amici italiani sono dei fighi, indossano vestiti e scarpe stupende, sciarpe favolose, occhiali da sole anche di notte e donne bellissime al loro fianco. Beh, sono considerato una figura santa in Italia. E' Milano... l'Italia è grande amico, cazzo se mi piace andarci".
(Noel Gallagher, Oasis)

Italy is Oasis spiritual home.
Italian boys are like me, very passionate.
4 elements mark them: football, music, family and love for elegance. My Italian friends are cool, they wear wonderful clothes and shoes, fabulous scarves, sunglasses even at night and beautiful women by their side. Well, I'm considered quite a holy figure in Italy, It's Milan... Italy's great man, I
fucking love going there.

"Milano è il miglior fottuto pubblico, e lo dico davvero!"
(toccandosi il cuore più volte)
(Liam Gallagher, Oasis)

Milan is the best fucking crowd, and I really mean it!
(touching his heart more times)

"Nice jacket"
(Liam Gallagher embracing me)
..... "Slide away" music by Oasis. We have a real piece of Moon next to my house, that is Manchester City symbol. You can see Capello table @ the Football English pub here and also Jesi, the town of former Inter Milan now City manager Mancini, where my uncle was born.

[=Milan is a beautiful city. Many people would pay for staying here. I almost never go shopping, what I like in Milan is the people.]
"
"We get chatting to Marco who was around for Paolo Nutini arriving and had given him a quick hand shake then sloped off, (you know how cool guys like to play it), he is really a Brit Indie lad at heart trapped inside the body of an Italian guy, his taste in music is fabulous.
The tempo was troppo caldo (too hot weather), the Duomo is breathtaking to say the least. Milano women are ridiculously stylish and fabulously slim, gorgeous beings. The chef shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian men are so smooth!

The centre of the world. The new zone where Oasis had to perform their last concert in history... before the "break" of 5 years... strange coincidence, 2015... we're all part of a Masterplan :))) In his 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere', Noel refers to Italy as the bands’ 'spiritual home' and anyone who has been to an Oasis gig in Italy will know why. It’s fitting that Oasis have chosen Milan to stage the final show... but then Noel left the band again (for the 3rd time) 2 days before (from the official site ) ..... arts->football->art->food->art->fashion->football->music->art... watch this slideshow I made with Oasis piano music of Live forever "we see things they'll never see...'cause I just wanna fly": the 1st city of fashion in the world, the most famous painting in the world, the most famous theatre in the world, the best food in the world, the biggest Christmas tree in the world, the biggest equestrian statue in the world, the 1st team in football history, Milan is magic ..... the most beautiful woman in the world, Breil Milano Compleanno Image Banner 300 x 250

..... ahahaha this is hilarious. One of many Milan red drinks ("Milan to drink") like Ramazzotti, Campari, etc. by a Milan comic band fooling around Milan homosexual fashion stylists ^_^ One says "divine" that also means "of wine" and the other goes "which wine, you stupid (girl) !" ahahaha

I'm pleased to announce that I created the "Milano" Facebook network, the only original one on Facebook (it took years to have it), and to use it you have to ask me (by mail here: marco@miamilan.com) a nice Google e-mail address, as "yourname@miamilan.com" ...I'm not Italian, I'm more: I'm from Milan. :D ...The funny part is that to make Facebook accept it, I put it as a "work network" but now it's also a place network. Milan people are known for being always busy in doing something, so this place-work network is appropriate :)
