I love music, I count myself so lucky to have lived through the fifties,sixties,seventies,eighties, nineties, and to a lessor extent the noughties and teens now, although there are some new discoverys, like Sheeran and Seasick Steve, they are as nothing to the impact that Chuck Berry, Beatles, Stones, The Who,The Kinks, Led Zepplin, Bolan, Roxy Music, Bowie,Talking Heads, and so many many more that coloured the background to my life. I've got an awesome collection on the iphone, still got a mono Sgt Pepper. I remember where I was in 1968 the very first time that wonderful new invention stereo meant different sounds came out of either speaker..

Couldn't name favorites, love them all, favorite Opera Carmen, also like Bethoven, Bach, Mozart in small doses at the right time and with the correct spirit bottle close to hand.

Also so many memories locked in particular tunes, genres and eras, it doesn't surprise me even dementia patients like a tune.

Music, how could you live without it?

I was sat outside Cowes in a rescue boat looking after a load of kids in Bosuns. A huge gin palace motored by with loads of girls wearing not very much and someone who looked like Oliver Reed. It was Oliver. They were filming Tommy.

Highlight of my musical 'career' was playing guitar for the Northern Amateur stage premier of Tommy, the musical.

Currently I'm more into acoustic genres, Bluegrass, Folk and, particularly, Gypsy Jazz. Still enjoy playing and listening to the bluesy end of rock though.

Noel went touring with him in the states, down south, said he's never been so fearful of his life, the intense racism they encountered. We never really noticed beyond his incredible talent with a guitar, it was like that in the late sixties and he was God. Must have been a bitch for the yanks finding out God was black.

The white middle classes of the time much prefered their musical icons to at least look caucasian. Hence Elvis getting the title "King of Rock and Roll" when there were a few others with more talent........ Hendrix did break that pattern. Rightly so.
