Was Espedair Street's ' Frozen Gold ' based on any living band ?
Hi Guys ,
I'm about a third way in to ' Espedair Street ' and got thinking whether Iain would have based his fictitious band ' Frozen Gold ' upon any living band of the time ?
I visualise them as a sort of ' Fleetwood Mac ' type of band - music that appeals to the masses without being too ' poppy ' - having said that the main character , Davey Weir comes across as a ' Lemmy ' type from ' Motorhead but only because he's big and ugly , not by the type of music I'm visualising ' Frozen Gold ' playing , perhaps I should say he's more of a ' BA Robertson ' type seeing as he's a Scot ??
