Marco Mendoza – Interview 22.04.2012

I leapt at the chance to interview Marco Mendoza this past Sunday, about his very first UK solo tour. We are at the Borderline in London, an intimately cosy venue, and Marco easily makes himself at home; chatting to me about his life, passions and his time with Thin Lizzy.

A review of his performance at London’s Borderline venue, plus more photos, will follow shortly.

About Del Preston

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweet shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me and Keith Moon and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweet shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shop owner and his son, that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business really. But sure enough, I got the M&Ms and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.
