Hi Everyone

For me the quintessential element of music is that it must be allowed to live.
Most chart music these days tends to die 'the death of 1000 cuts'
at the hands of over eager producers. I guess if there was ever a way to murder a piece of music then that seems to be the most popular!
I try to achieve some depth both musically and lyrically and if that isn't fashionable then so be it. Music is an aural experience and the sooner record companies realise
that then the sooner the industry will get back on it's feet.
So much can be achieved with music so let's not waste the opportunity!

love n peace to all

Hi John, I saw "When I Was Young" on the Classic Top 10 and really like it--there's some gorgeous guitar work there. There are still ears that appreciate real songs!

I'm fine with it .. I think it's been a tradition with a lot of composers across the ages :-)
