Hi and welcome
The reason for setting up this site is twofold, Firstly, to tell you about the bands and artists I have played over the years and secondly to let people hear some of my songs.
Another reason is quite poignant as just before Christmas 2011 I suffered TGA (Transient Global Amnesia). My wife rushed me to hospital at 1.30am where it was decided I would stay for tests. On arriving home at 3.30am she wandered into my office/recording studio and thought, "What will I do with all his songs?"
Hence, when I recovered she insisted I should get them all on-line.
I hope you enjoy my story, photos and songs and the tracks of Karen-Ana, who has one of the loveliest voices I have ever heard , I have also published a new song.
Here it is: created with the help of Opkar Hans on guitar and keyboard, 'My Woman Of The Night' just click below to take a listen
We are over a year old now and still coming across old friends and new ones too. I welcome any stories, photos etc from you.
Eurovison Thoughts 2013
After an excellent rendering, by Bonny Tyler, of a mediocre song, my BP is rising, yet again, when I realise that our entry is NOT the best this country can produce. The song is chosen by an unnamed BBC official, usually the artist records the number in Nashville (don't we have excellent studios in the UK??) and we pay a substantial amount of money to the European Broadcasting Union to be in the final. Can we really let the BBC go on wasting OUR money like this and making us the laughing stock of Europe?? I don't accept it's always 100% political - does this apply to Ireland, France and Spain. They were below us this year. I did propose to the BBC last year that, perhaps, songs could be sent to local radio stations and for the best to be picked nationally, but it reminded me of the childhood notes I used to send up the chimney to Father Christmas suggesting all the things I'd like - to no avail!! COME ON BBC - get your act together, and consider those who are paying you, and put a bit more effort in!! Let's see our Flag where it should be - at least in the top 5 every year.
