You’ll Like This… A Lot

RIP magician Paul Daniels. Something of a childhood hero of mine, a masterful entertainer, one of those acts that it was fashionable to disdain at the time, but everybody loved and loves really.

Here are a couple of clips of him discussing performing, audiences and nerves. What can a musician learn from a magician? A lot – trust me, a lot.
