YOUR view of music over the years.

Posted: Yesterday at 23:44

As a 15 year old I was a big fan of The Jam. Late teens into 20s I discovered Marillion and U2...the former having seen live four times. At this time I was introduced to prog rock from earlier years by my older brothers...bands I had missed on account of being a bit too young. Pink Floyd,Genesis,Yes,Led Zeppelin,Jimi Hendrix,Santana and many,many more.

Then there's The Beatles of course. The Who,Fleetwood Mac,Guns&Roses and in more recent years,Snow Patrol,Keane,Radiohead and some Oasis. Oh and The Verve.

Now I'm nearing 50 I've mellowed and nostalgia finds me listening to 80s music in general,love songs from most eras. But the next minute I can play Marillion's sublime album 'Misplaced Childhood' - 43 minutes of pure brilliance

Will do Dove. Yes its a long time, must be something major and like you say, the internet is alongside energy and water supply as regards necessity now. How on earth did we manage without it??

Just thought I'd let you guys know that Lyn is incommunicado right now. The phone line is broken at the main exchange and can't be fixed until the 28th!? 

Football season - 2014

You did David. I must say if I was a Liverpool fan I'd be livid seeing him swapping shirts at half time. Clearly the club means nothing to him, its disgraceful.

However, I was very pleased with another away draw in Europe for us  That little maestro Barkley back too.

I would have been 1 at the time of Aberfan, though I've read much about the tragedy. I think modern technology,especially in the last decade or so has desensitised us. The violence of warfare,the sight of the starving,the horror of a tsunami - they have opened our eyes to life's potential for brutality through the instant communication of the internet. Innocence has been lost.
