Gary Bushell

Tomorrow, Friday 27th August, I am meeting Gary Bushell in the 12 Bar Club, in London's busy west end, with intentions of doing an interview with him. Its for his podcast programme. I'll be talking about what I'm writing about and the music Pete, Nigel (from The Lurkers) and me are doing - we are called GLM and the website is, http://www.godslonelymen.com/ - have a listen and leave a message.
Well, I'll see how it goes.

Fulham in a European cup final - when they got to Wembley in 1975 I said to myself, 'anything is possible,' and it changed my approach to all things - but now...
I'm going - I have a ticket and will be travelling on the coach from Craven Cottage on Tuesday 11th May - I just wish my poor old dad was here - he would have said , as he always did when Fulham won (which wasn't very often for years), 'did you hear the score Pete? Fulham have goner mad.' - and he was right.

And talking of 'mad,' the election stuff is filling the tele screen - but what is this that has suddenly overshadowed it all? - politics - people really getting involved in politics - in Athens that is - real passion by people who are saying what we know, 'we are run by thieves' - and the tepid mid-manager Berkshire Hunts bleat, drone and bullshit thier way to a status that gives them massive perks, a lot of money and the chance to steal without having to go to court if caught in the act - mind, I will be voting, for what its worth - the first time for years - there's passion for you.
