I'll just bid farewell till we meet again


You may have realised that I'm not writing here much anymore. This is because I can't find the time to, and after two or so years, I'm finding it harder to find any inspiration. Perhaps I have outgrown the blogging world? Who knows. Anyway, this will be my last post. I'll be retiring my blog from today.

I'll be cleaning up some of the links and stuff so the page will still be active. This means that if the world is obliterated by nuclear armageddon and this is all that remains of humanity then the aliens who eventually will visit this planet may well think that the human race was obsessed with Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, that they enjoyed watching teams like Southampton FC and that they were obviously very simple people who got themselves locked into the toilet on a regular basis.

I'll still be writing for Rockbeatstone and I may well return to the world of blogging in the future with other projects, if I find the time. You can also come and see my gig nights at the Windmill in Brixton, London which will be continuing for the foreseeable future. In other long-term news I'll be visiting the USA in the Summer for a couple of weeks which will be fun.

So good luck to all and thanks for reading, I hope I entertained you with my frivolity. I'll leave you with some words of wisdom from the greats of the rock and roll world. Never forget these quotes, they're great to put into conversation at any point possible. These are two which will never leave me:

"They say the darkest hour, is right before the dawn" (Bob Dylan)

"It's a town full of losers and I'm pulling out of here to win" (Bruce Springsteen)
