How about Country Sad in NYC?
How about Battery In Your Leg in NYC?
How about Blue Blue Jeans in NYC?
I can't make puppets or weave or anything, is that ok?

i love playing country sad ballad man... but i don't see a time when it will be played any time soon...

In the video for Coffee and TV, when the band are playing in that basement you just put down your guitar and leave, but the band sounds just the same.
What's that about, eh?
iamgrahamcoxon60 karma2015-10-15 20:03:35 UTC
i know! this is why i don't like videos! they bear no resemblance to the truth or real life!

Thanks for doing this, Graham! Along with Pete Townshend and Rowland S. Howard, you’re one of my biggest guitar heroes. I’ve played along to “Chemical World” and “This is a Low” more times than I can count.
I have two questions:
First, you were quoted in the mid-90s saying that you thought “Young and Lovely” was the best guitar work you had ever done with Blur. Do you still feel that way, or does something on Blur or 13 stand out more to you now?
Second, Blur recently started playing “Caravan” live, a song from Think Thank, which you weren’t involved in the recording of (except for “Battery in Your Leg”). What are the band politics of resurrecting something like that? Do you come up with a guitar part that fits the song and then approach Damon?
I loved The Magic Whip and I really hope you and Damon do more work together in the future.
iamgrahamcoxon30 karma2015-10-15 19:33:31 UTC
hi.. i have always let the other boys know that i would always be willing to play tunes form TT.. sometimes damon may wake up one day and want to try a song so we practice it in soundcheck and if it works we play it that night...
irina_frank11 karma2015-10-15 19:37:39 UTC
hi, Graham! i love your music and i'm a huge fan of blur! :) the magic whip is awesome, i've been listening to the album since you released it!

iamgrahamcoxon11 karma2015-10-15 19:38:54 UTC

What do you think people take way too seriously?
iamgrahamcoxon22 karma2015-10-15 19:55:41 UTC
the obvious answer is themselves i think...

Could you please share the lyrics to your part of Pyongyang?
iamgrahamcoxon21 karma2015-10-15 20:02:28 UTC
years ago when we used to be rivals
our youths minds and arms were bound
for our own survival.

Hi Graham, any chance of you releasing an art book? I've been a huge fan of the artwork you've done for your album covers.

Hi Graham, massive fan of both Blur and your solo work; I've got some questions:
Are you doing another solo album?
What direction do you plan on taking for it?
Is your daughter Pepper musical?
iamgrahamcoxon11 karma2015-10-15 19:34:14 UTC
hiya.. ii have a solo album sitting on hold right now with no plans to release.. one day i would like to put it out though. it was recorded at the same time as A and E
Wordswitcher5 karma2015-10-15 19:36:30 UTC
record label screwing you over, gra?
iamgrahamcoxon23 karma2015-10-15 19:45:37 UTC
wha? no.. i just didn't want to release another solo album while there was a lot of blur activity going on... now off you pop!!
iamgrahamcoxon11 karma2015-10-15 19:50:08 UTC
funnily enough i woke up today thinking about sound concepts...harmony, mood and rhythm...i might like to go expansive english.. a bit like if england had a huge desert is the middle-- that kinda sound.... and yes she is...
blurisgood5 karma2015-10-15 19:30:31 UTC
Hello, Graham! How do you feel about your gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (I know there are more sexualities and gender identities, but this is for brevity) fans? I often wonder this about members of my favorite bands as a transgender person myself. PS, you’re a fantastic musician and The Magic Whip is awesome. Thanks so much for the great music. You’ve done really good work!
iamgrahamcoxon21 karma2015-10-15 19:36:23 UTC
i think its ears that are important! x
deetledum5 karma2015-10-15 19:38:24 UTC
Hi, Graham :) You've said you've been writing a memoir, how's that going?
iamgrahamcoxon14 karma2015-10-15 19:44:39 UTC
well.. i have been thinking about writing short stories about my childhood..not really a memoir.. but just for fun....
missnicenspicy_5 karma2015-10-15 19:36:23 UTC

iamgrahamcoxon9 karma2015-10-15 19:40:10 UTC
haha... not really! thanks for your concern!!
steamboat_cat5 karma2015-10-15 19:26:23 UTC
Hi Mr. Coxon! I am a huge huge fan, I've been listening to you with my dad since I was
a little girl and I've put a Blur song on every mix cd I've ever made. What's a song that you'd put on every mixtape if you could? Thanks for doing this and for all the music over the years. Even just a hello from you would be the highlight of my dad's and my whole year!!
iamgrahamcoxon12 karma2015-10-15 19:35:37 UTC
hello there.. thanks for the question.. there are so many songs i would put on every mix tape though i don't really make them! one would be "ladies of the road" by king crimson.. its pretty insane...byyye!!
DeJw975 karma2015-10-15 19:55:08 UTC
It's kinda weird, but do alex's feet smell good?
iamgrahamcoxon16 karma2015-10-15 19:57:43 UTC
i don't get anywhere near those things!
Wordswitcher4 karma2015-10-15 19:35:06 UTC
Graham! What's your favourite album that Damon worked on that's not Blur?
iamgrahamcoxon29 karma2015-10-15 19:40:50 UTC

my0uu4 karma2015-10-15 19:41:01 UTC
Hi Graham, the first thing i wanna tell you is I'M TOO EXCITED to think about some question for you today!! In my place now it's around midnight or maybe later and i just surprised that i can wait for this >____<
There's my question: What do you see yourself being when you're 70?
Sorry if my q is too plain :3
iamgrahamcoxon16 karma2015-10-15 19:42:47 UTC
haha.. 70. mm.. still playing the guitar nd trying to be as good as my inspirations...probably still in ill fitting clothes...maybe living in LA with pet cactus
Agrainel4 karma2015-10-15 19:39:52 UTC

Is there anything you don't like about playing live?
iamgrahamcoxon10 karma2015-10-15 20:00:48 UTC
when the sound is poor and i feel very tired.. mostly i love it.
shinypeach3 karma2015-10-15 19:37:41 UTC
hi graham! :) my favourite album of yours is the spinning top, would you ever do a more acoustically driven album again?
iamgrahamcoxon7 karma2015-10-15 19:39:28 UTC
yes i would..i play more acoustic guitar than electric usually... so a few things crop up that i might consider recording..
lewiky3 karma2015-10-15 19:50:21 UTC

Also, any chance of a UK tour with Blur anytime soon? Would kill to see you guys!
