It was my era though that is the thing, and my late mate Rosi and I enjoyed all the Concerts and Club Gigs We Travelled well and lived life in the fast lane, not for long though, would have only changed some of it, not much though. Rosi died young and my life nearly came to an end quite a while back as well, so I treasure living and music is my saviour whether its new or old, memories are good to share whatever ones views are, it is fine by me...We are not clones yet....
When I saw that video this morning, it set me right off into posting something about it. I thought some of was awful but you see through different eyes at different times.

p,s, That destruction song would not be something I would want to listen to ever again...protest songs hate them, for the way they are fed to you....

Sorry to hear about your friend. I too lost a dear friend, though in the eighties; never quite got over his loss. He was literally my best friend but the music he was into was not what I was at the time (Barry Manilow, ABBA etc) so we didn't have much in common music wise.

Protest songs aren't for everyone, but I think that one is particularly effective. I love how angry he gets singing it. How about some Dylan via Jimi?

Devastated completely..we done almost everything together since infants school and she was very popular with people, at her funeral it was overflowed into the gardens and speakers outside so all could hear the service.
Moving on, like Jimmy Hendrix he is good of course but don't listen much at all these days and Dylan was good at the time, Rosi and I shared a Dylan LP once as we could not afford it really.
I like most music and love some. To me finding something new to me and loving it, is my day made....

I was 10 years old when You Really Got Me came out. I remember because I asked my mum to get me the single for my birthday.

Nice pic, Dianne! Gotta ask about the babies, I'm afraid.
My sister, 5 years older than me, used to dress like that, and going back to the start, as you suggest, I remember afternoons when her friend would come over. The music might be Frank Ifield or The Beatles, but the scrapbooks they worked on were of Cliff Richards and Adam Faith. Me? Probably pushing my Matchbox cars around the table, but soaking it all up...

Don't be surprised if later today you get a "Friendship Cancelled" notification in your inbox, ok? Does MB have one that includes the word "irrevocably"?

Was just trying to figure out what you want to know about the babies..One is my Sisters born around & about the same time November 1968 for ours and then had twins the following November 1969 and realising my world had stopped...
I basically talk about anything and often talk rubbish but really just joking about a lot. Had some very serious stuff go on in my life so prefer to act the fool a lot.... You need to just plain talk as I get lost with text talking mode.

Kinks, You really got me' just looked that up 1964 so I was about 16 then as born Sept 1948.My best mate now is Ash and he thinks he is old at 67 next month, but actually I do not feel old at all, have always done a lot of keep fit, all my life just about.
A Love of music makes us different I reckon.
