First Blog

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it - Winston Churchill

I started this blog because having read lots of blogs from around the world I have learnt that simply reading about other peoples lives is spell-binding. They don't have to live extraordinary lives - they just have to live!

I grew up in London, England in the sixties. My first musical interest was The Everly Brothers. I saw them in the sixties, I was at their reunion concert at the Royal Albert Hall and I saw them recently in that same place probably for the last time (they said).

I saw the Beatles play live when they weren't even top of the bill! I think it was Del Shannon & Chris Montez.

Now I have three little grandsons but I still feel like a teenager and still like that music plus a lot more.
