    By the way, the guy who wrote the lyrics for this song, William Attaway, was a distinguished writer. Blood on the Forge is a great novel, for anyone interested.
    Belafonte was 'just a guy' from my parents life time at first but I've listened to a few of his live recordings over the past years and I must say he was a very great performer, a perfectionist.

    Four of us went to St. Michael's church in Rushock to pay our respects at John Bonham's burial plot yesterday evening just before the sun set - we made an on-the-spot decision to stop off on the way home after a pleasant evening drinking in the leafy surroundings of Chaddesley Corbett. After the subdued atmosphere of last night's graveside reflection I want to hear the thunder today.

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Magnificent post (and that is not hyperbole and neither is this.....)

    having had enough of Celi and his interpretation of Schumann on YT at work I have just hit the nostalgia button so effectively my head is all over......Stones 'Waiting on a friend' and 'Time waits for no one'......b***** h***!!!!!!
