I set up this blog as a form of therapy - I went through some very dark days - i wanted to tell myself and those that loved or cared about me that I was okay. This is what I did. There was a reason behind the actions and problems that ensued from those actions. It has served a purpose too, in that I have been able to get things out that have previously not been said written my history, a history that sometimes fails to make into some other people's histories. So hopefully it is all good.

The real joy has come now with the realisation that my experience has formed part of a lecture that Tony Kostrzewa made to some aspirant musicians in Leeds some time ago. You can click here and read it. It made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. I have arrived if Tony K said it, it is fact it is true. Well all except the bit about making money out Colin Whatsisname.

Tony Kostrzewa RIP

Tony Kostrzewa died last night at 23:45.

He was a super hero in the very truest sense of the words. He had powers that we do not have. He made things happen. He saw through to the core of stuff. He was a god.

Over the coming weeks the world will come to know what he did for us all and will then recognise his monumental contribution to the world of popular music.

For now I will content myself in the knowledge that he was my friend and he helped make me what I am today.

God Bless Tony .....

and Gerri, Alice and Ben
