Bobby Womack storms Liverpool

Bobby Womack storms Liverpool

YOU didn't have to go as far the Grammys in LA  last night if you wanted to be in the aura of a music legend.

Bobby Womack,  who penned The Rolling Stones first big hit, It's All Over Now, gave it some as if to prove that particular song title couldn't be further from the truth.  The 69-year-old rock n roll survivor stormed the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in one of only two UK dates.

The electrifying performance from Womack - who was discovered by Sam Cooke, controversially married his widow, played guitar for Aretha Franklin, ended up with Gorillaz and went on to be honoured in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, 2009 - brought the full house to its dancing feet.

Among them were The Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie and ex Liverpool FC midfielder Paul Ince who was sacked by text as Blackpool FC's manager last week.

If Ince was still sore it didn't show: he was spotted giving it some fancy footwork with a bunch of women and turned the back of the stalls into his very own tower ballroom.  Would the Tangerines' loss soon be Strictly Come Dancing's gain?

The delighted crowd went home swaying to strains of Across 110th Street. Meanwhile Womack, who last year released the highly acclaimed album The Bravest Man in the Universe, his first in two decades, got his head down across another street - at the Hope Street Hotel.
