It was after watching Bon Jovi: One Night Only on television last November that I bought tickets for Hard Rock Calling. I made a promise to myself in 2007 that after missing so many previous tours I would never miss another one, circumstances permitting. My companion for this trip was my 16 year old brother [...]

Saturday August 18th 1990 was the last time I saw Whitesnake in concert when they headlined that year’s Monsters of Rock at Donnington Park. Steve Vai was the highlight for me that day but his tenure with Whitesnake finished soon after that performance when David Coverdale split up the band in 1991. This past Monday [...]
Only got as far as the thistle bushes again today. All my buzzing friends were there but my hayfever kicked in and after 10 minutes I was weeping like a baby. the things I go through for my art I think this is the best of the bunch – just a shame the centre of the flower [...]
Just a couple taken on a quick 10 minute excursion to the nearby thistle bushes. As usual, with my Panasonic TZ10 in macro mode.
I’m getting a bit bored of this now, which isn’t really what I should be writing, but I’m not kidding myself anyone is actually reading! I don’t really have music I listen to for different moods. I generally just scroll down the album listing and see what jumps out at me. I’m going to change this to [...]
I managed to get out of the office for about 10 minutes at the end of my lunch to get some fresh air after a frantic morning. There’s not a great deal to photograph in the office car park but I did catch this guy before he flew off to pastures new.
I’m not really one for getting angry that often and it soon passes, far too quickly for me to think about playing music to get over my anger at any rate. However, if I were to need a song to get over my anger it would probably be something by Weird Al Yankovic, and being [...]
There’s a constant battle going on in my mind as to whether Slippery When Wet or New Jersey is my favourite album, both by Bon Jovi. At this moment in time it’s New Jersey. Lay Your Hands On Me, Bad Medicine and Born To Be My Baby would be the obvious choices but it’s actually [...]
I’m a day late with this one as I was concentrating on a new blog post for Dedicated to Disneyland Paris last night. This is a song that I did first hear on the radio but haven’t heard since, on the radio, and is one I wish they’d play more often. Last spring I heard [...]
This one is for my wife as Radio 1 play a song by her favourite band, McFly, every Friday. Just after 8am, every week, they rename the day McFriday and play Star Girl, a song they premiered when I took her to see them at Wembley Arena in 2006. They were actually a lot better than I [...]
