BONNIE Tyler doesn't even feel 50 so the fact she's marking her 50th year in the music industry is somewhat baffling to her. She wasn't even aware of the massive milestone until after creating her 17th album."When I saw the sticker on the front of my album saying 'celebrating 50 years in the business' I was like 'what the...? That's incredible'," she cries in excitement.It might seem unlikely for a person's own career timeline to slip their mind but it pretty much sums up everything I come to know about the humble Welsh pop icon during our chat.Now 67, she is rather astounded by her longevity as an artist and she still can't believe she managed to succeed back in the 1970s.She's also pinching herself over the fact the likes of Sir Cliff Richard and Sir Rod Stewart wanted to work with her on her new album.Having started her career as a singer in 1969, Tyler – who was born Gaynor Hopkins in Skewen, Wales – was discovered by a talent scout and scored a record deal in the … [Read more...] about Bonnie Tyler on her new album: Things just started happening, like it was fate

Bonnie Tyler Between The Earth And The Stars THE husky-voiced Welsh chanteuse is celebrating 50 years in the business with her 17th studio release and has called in a few big names. These include three duets and a couple of top songwriters, Amy Wadge and Sir Barry Gibb. The album kicks off with a rocky ballad, Hold On, before the first duet of the set. Tyler has, in the past, been described as a female Rod Stewart, so it is with some irony that she pairs up with him for Battle Of The Sexes. Their voices, as can be imagined, mesh successfully. The next collaboration starts with a very familiar boogie chug, and, lo and behold, the voice of Francis Rossi is heard. If it wasn't for Tyler's vocals, this could almost be a Quo song. Sir Cliff Richard sings on Taking Control, a classic pop number. There is a fair sprinkling of ballads, plus up-tempo songs with country and polite funk flavours. All-in-all this is a fine, mature, album. 8/10 Steve Grantham Fisherman's Friends Keep Hauling … [Read more...] about Album reviews: Bonnie Tyler, Fishermen’s Friends, Maverick Sabre, Benjamin Francis Leftwich
“By making no compensation offer and instructing desk representatives to dole out settlements only when pressed, you’re treating guests poorly. In fact, you’re effectively training us to distrust you and complain loudly. Now that I know other guests in $149 rooms got a full night’s refund, I believe my family is entitled to the same thing. After all, we suffered exactly the same inconvenience.” … [Read more...] about My hotel needed a plumber, and I needed a refund. Here’s how I did it

Carl Lamb, managing director of Almary Green Archant Our reader this week is self employed, and wants to know if they need to take out a work, as well as a state, pension scheme? Carl Lamb of Almary Green provides the answers. I’m age 42 and went self-employed in October. I’ve registered to pay National Insurance to make sure I get my stamp for my state pension but do I need to take out a work pension too? I know that company pensions are compulsory now but does that apply to the self-employed?Almary Green Response It’s not compulsory to take out a workplace pension if you are self-employed, so you are not obliged to do so. However, it is really important to think about building a pension pot for your retirement: your state pension will only bring up to around £8,500 per year (based on the maximum entitlement for the current tax year) which is unlikely to meet all your needs in retirement, unless you have already built up a sizeable pension pot while you … [Read more...] about Ask the Expert: I’m self employed, do I need a workplace pension as well as a state pension?
