LOSSY

His often difficult relationship with fans and interviewers isnít mere petulance or arrogance
or bad temper. It is a deep dissociation from the whole business of putting on a public face.
Paradoxically for such a great performer, he has a complete inability to perform ìVan Morrisonî,
the shaman-like figure of his songs, the conjurer of transcendent moments.

So you take him as you find him. And I find him courteous, engaged, oddly straightforward. All
he asks for is a cup of coffee and that we sit at the window of the hotel where we meet with a
view over Belfast Lough.

He looks as if he might have come straight from a boat in the bay, dressed in a well-worn green
waxed jacket and a fishermanís cap, a ruddy, wind-blown glow to his cheeks. The only disconcerting
thing about him is a kind of simplicity Iíve never encountered in anyone else Iíve interviewed,
the simplicity of someone who has no game to play, no impression to make, no line to sell, no image
to construct or maintain.
