“Today a black man was elected to be the president of America. The most powerful man in history is black. That’s something that fills my heart with joy and hope.”

Listen to Elbow


  1. What a nice and reasonable Guy! What a great band!

  2. let´s hope the future will happen as you described it, guy.

  3. Guy you said it so well in a few words. Hope it happens! Lovin the fantastic music from elbow.

  4. So profound, but so bloody funny at the same time…you’re a natural politician Guy, thinking on your feet. I vote for you!

  5. One year after… What would you say? I mean, hope always as a consequence of living. But, about how this peculiar moment in history faded in and still is special, how do you perceive this?

  6. i heard this month that obama is too softly softly because they government is lying to us end this madness now send them all back were they came from what a load of rot

  7. I’m so sorry it took me so long to wake up to wh0 and what elbow are as a band and a group of people. They have a social and personal conscience and the eloquence to express it in a way that isnt preaching and entertains enormously. Listening to their music is like coffee & a bacon sandwich on a cold winters morning, it satisfies you and leaves you with a warmer feeling than you had before and ready to face the day.

    Cant wait to see what you do next!

  8. There’s an akward 15 second gap from 1:05 to 1:20 which I find funny, but good interview, good man, and good point about how they can change back from a war machine.

  9. Im old and not at my best!But i found you and your fantastic music on C.I.N. have been finding out lovely things about you ,your life and the band and of course listening to a bit more of your music.Read about the forthcoming Olympic anthem in the Guardian.Borowing an album from the daughter in law.Keep singing,and spreading happiness
