‘Scuse Me While I Kiss The Sky

hendrix

The first time I heard Jimi Hendrix, the sky fell on my head and I was hooked forever. That’s probably just a little on the romantic side, but that’s exactly what it felt like back in the classroom in New Parks Boys School, watching the music teacher rip him off the turntable in disgust. Such was the tolarance and cultural diversity of a 1960’s secondary modern shit hole. If you’ve never heard the brilliance of Jimi Hendrix, this is the album to begin with for it’s the ‘Experience’ at it’s very best.

I was born and raised in Leicester UK, in October 1953. Dad played the piano and our house was rich in musical diversity. Big band sounds of the 1930's and 1940's, rock & roll sounds from the 1950's and 1960's all had equal play time on the gramophone, and tuning into Radios Luxembourg and Caroline, Heaven on Earth. Music has always played a huge part of my life, and still does.
