Tweet We went to see the Rolling Stones in Hyde Park. There is always a bit of trepidation when you see a band that you love and admire. Will they be as good as you remember? How will time have affected them? Will it seem as if they are only there for the money and […]

So last night I picked up Keef Hartley’s book Halfbreed opened it at random and started reading about Keef […]
Tweet This is not as stupid a question as it first appears. At least, not if you think that music is important. I believe that music is one of the foundations of society.
