Memoriam … Still Loyal
… I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at war …
Its been a long while since I’ve figuratively taken up the pen and written anything noteworthy or of interest …
That said I have had a few ideas and subject matters slowly gestating and its only until now I’ve decided to put something out in ‘print’ !!!
Its a culmination of several emotions and ideas – since confidently marching into my mid 40’s and not only leaving one pastime behind, and albeit happily settling down on and focusing on my career and enjoying family life I’ve since rediscovered a former passion, or rather reignited the flame for one of my first loves – music !!!
Specifically, as I’m sure you’ve long by now since gathered, heavy music in particular, and have in recent years enjoyed a renewed vigour, a renaissance of late – the flame has been very much rekindled.
It must be pointed out in lieu of several of my favourite all time bands either no longer existing, on hiatus and many other so called classic bands languishing in mediocrity I had resorted to delving into the archives and re living my youth through many bands of yester year.
However, as certain events transpired, amongst the myriad of young upstarts generally leaving me cold and a slew of older bands reforming for one final pay check or another stab at returning to former glory – something else fell across my desk, old school yes, but reinvigorated and rejuvenated with a new found passion and energy, the likes of which have not been seen for quite some time …
