It looks like James Blunt has more going for him than just one song. You know he must be dying for another song just to get rid of that one hit wonder tag. It probably haunts him, although the fact he sold 11 million albums with that song on it probably eases the pain somewhat.
Anyway, while doing press for his new album, James gave an interview to the BBC. I knew he had been in the military, but I don't think I knew what he actually did until this interview. James was an officer in the British military. He was involved in a very famous incident and James says he was the one who personally stopped World War 3 from happening.
Here is what James told the BBC yesterday. He said that US General, Wesley Clark had ordered a group of 200 British soldiers led by James Blunt to capture an airfield even if they had to shoot the Russians guarding it. James said he refused the order and was backed up on the radio by the highest ranking British general in Kosovo.
The general was interviewed after James Blunt said what he did, and the general agreed with everything James said. Great job James. Still don't like Beautiful. You can listen to the interview here.
