Now Back to 76


1976 was a great year for me. I had traveled, recorded in a real studio, and had not yet fell in love for the first time. Fell in lust too many times though. This was taken in a hotel room somewhere between Manhattan and Blackpool.

Thanks for the post Joe. The DVD hasn't arrived as yet. We got an email from Renee Grant-Williams saying there was a slight printing delay and they expected it to ship from Nashville somewhere around 11/11, so, any day now. It's funny, I liken singing to hitting golf balls, there are some clubs (songs) that get you right on the sweet spot, where you can sing real strong, and others, the notes feel really weak and wobbly. I'm hoping with practice I can get as good a voice as say Simon Townshend.

How are things going with you? Did you have a chance to watch the In The Attic today?

In 1976 I was 10. I remember celebrating the bi-centennial I lived in Philadelphia so it was kind of a big deal. I remember the big deal made about the World Trade Center being completed and opened for busines and my Dad bought a Red and White Malibu Classic, what a flashy car for a 45 year old guy!

So you want to work at Burger King, I may still have some connections maybe I can help you out! You are too funny!

1976. Hmm. I was VERY young and I it was cool because of the bicentennial. It was also scary because I saw on the TV that people were walking around with signs saying that the world was going to end. Since I was only 7 years old, I thought it was really going to happen. That kind of stunk.

I like the new look of the blog, Joe!

Thanks for visiting and your encouraging words. I'm not going anywhere, I'm staying in London to enjoy the city and relax!

My big getaway is always in August when I go back home and stay in the beautiful island of Spetses for three whole weeks. I spend all winter thinking about it...

Take care,

Great pic, Joe!

1976 was a great year. We had the Olympics in Montreal but our mum took us to Europe and Mauritius and we had a wonderful summer away from home. I especially remember that England was under water shortages because of the hot, dry weather and that my aunt kept going out into the garden at midnight because they had helicopters circling to catch people trying to use garden hoses.

Forget what I said in my previous comment.
Its now Sunday and I decided to go away after all.
I'm going to Amsterdam for four days. I'm so happy!
I'll try to come back in one piece as you said, thanks...

Take care, Joe
