  1. Indeed. They sound like contrived tales of fiction when in fact that we're probably even worse. It has been a strange and eventful life but I wouldn't have had it any other way.

    I have always said if I died tomorrow I would die a happy man having seen and done more than I could have ever envisaged from my Yorkshire mining community upbringing.

    A few years before this encounter with some of the Who band members.
    It was the summer break at college, and me and my mate piled into his beach buggy and drove down to Cornwall to surf for six weeks. He had an 8 track player in it and we played Tommy, by the Who, all the way there and back. So I was already in awe of the band before I met some of them.
    Do you remember 8 track players?

    And the music was much better in those days, in my opinion, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Chuck Berry, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, did I leave out any colours? :D
  4. I would probably disagree here as there has been great music throughout every era.

    Saying that I do have a love for punk and while at sea in the 70's as a cadet I ended up playing a couple of songs on stage with a band in Auckland. Great night great memories. No taxi curtosy of the local police so must have been sensible at the same time.
