"It's now the 11th of May, We've played and partied

It was great and everyone had a fun time

I'll be telling more, soon

Too busy getting my Album into Real Record Shops!

£62.55p was raised for Tibet

I wish it had been more and I'd like to thank all my friends for coming

Now go out and buy my album! There's only 200 pressed

Once sold out I will be sending a further £200 to Tibet

Again thanks to all involved. It was a great show

and I loved it!"



Update :

Yeh right. That's why you went out and wrote Yesterday Is Gone (get over it) soon after and topped that with King of The World. Next thing you know I'd compiled the God Knows I'm Good album and now I've got all these stickers and fridge magnets, and I'm moving the studio out to the countryside, to a converted barn to live alone and learn to cook. Far out baby!

It's been an interesting few months sine I hit 40 and no one came to my party. Sort of. The Public certainly weren't there despite all my local press support. Hey ho

At least I'm updating the web site at long last. Slowly I'll replace and update all the Purple Pages as we head off into a Golden Future. 12 years left to go people. Time to Get Busy and Tidy Up This World. Starting with Our Selves

And if you don't believe me then go buy my album and listen to the songs until the words enter your world and beyond. Then you'll see as you sing along

"'coz we're all going to die...


Love your life
