I Want

I want to do this full time. Not write a blog, although I’m enjoying the therapeutic nature of it. If you haven’t tried it, have a go. Get some of your thoughts out of your head and I can guarantee…

Why do we like what we like?

This question can be applied to pretty much anything I guess; People, Film, Food etc. But I am thinking specifically about music at the moment. What is it that forms our opinion of what is good or not. Is it…

And The Crowd Goes Wild

It’s the culmination of every dream scenario I’ve had my entire life, I’m sure I’m no different from you in this. As a young boy, playing out football, wrestling or a little later Rugby League then music scenarios, either alone…

You don't know what you don't know

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this (I’ve definitely mentioned it) but I have had one of my goals fulfilled recently. In fact, it was yesterday at the time of writing. Sunday 3rd June 2018 if you’re not currently sat…
