It's been a wonderful Journey as I have managed the odd concert including PINK FLOYD in 89 - Simply Amazing
I hail from a small Island on the West Coast of Scotland called Bute but now reside in the Northwest of England in a town called Blackburn.
I like many different styles of music but my heart is made of Solid Rock an no matter how distracted I get I always come back for more.
I have many tracks that I love but if you asked 3 tracks that I would want at my funeral then these would be:
UFO's ROCK BOTTOM (Phonomenom)
LYNYRD SKYNYRD SIMPLE MAN (pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)
PINK FLOYD WISH YOU WERE HERE (Wish you were here)
Hi Denzil, very nice to meet you. Hey, we're almost neighbours!! Me and my family currently live in Lancashire, in a village about halfway between Manchester and Liverpool, and I was born and grew up in Lancashire, though most of my adult life I have lived in the USA, but I've been to Blackburn many times, even saw a couple of concerts there at the King George's Hall as a youth (Roy Harper was certainly one, I think the other was probably New Order, but they all sort of blurred one into the other in those days! ) I imagine the isle of Bute is quite beautiful and incredibly peaceful, so I won't ask what made you leave there and move to Blackburn!!) Anyway, enjoy your time here, let's hope it's quite a while yet before the poor old vicar at the church/crematorium has to start looking for Skynyrd and UFO albums!!
