I would like to introduce you to Peter from Leeds – he will be visiting Great Yarmouth this week to attend an Elvis Festival and he travels to several Elvis soirees every year. He is a really nice, friendly person whose parting words to us were ‘Keep rockin’ and rollin’.’ Right back at you Peter.

Obviously, I already knew Space Oddity and the strange beauty of Bowie but one night, in late December 1971, I got on the bus home from Bedford where I met up with my friend Heather. Heather was cool – she worked in the record department W.H.Smiths and she was clutching a bag with a vinyl album in it.
‘Oh’, she said, ‘this is the GREATEST thing I have ever heard – been playing it in the shop all day. You must come round.’ So I got off the bus at her stop and went to her house where I ended up staying the night after listening to Hunky Dory for what seemed hours and hours and not getting bored.

This weekend I have been listening to Black Star and it made me think about ageing and fading and I thought ‘this is vintage Bowie’ and so it is.

I am so sad that we have lost him and his unique take on our world. No doubt, he is hand in hand with Major Tom now, floating together in the tin can.

I saw this graffiti in MK a few months ago and had to take it as it is also from the Flight the Conchords which I love too.

Although not a particular fan of Pearl Jam I have great respect for Eddie Vedder who seems to me to be a caring and honest man. His involvement with the case of the West Memphis Three, a vile and wicked miscarriage of justice, together with others who used their fame to fund and highlight the issues therein demonstrates how you can put fame to good use, unlike a gobby Irish man I can think of.
