    Well, its just turned 2.30 am, and I’m on a huge high. I am so proud of my city, Liverpool is one of the worlds greatest music cities, and this evening we absolutely tore down the house. The guy we supported was not American as I thought, but from South Wales. ” The Real John Lewis “…. he was a remarkable player, and great guy. I haven’t looked but doubtless he will be on you tube. We opened, to a packed house. I’m just winding down, with coffee and a smoke, so very, very, happy to not only get my first paycheck since June last, but by the amount of love that came my way. Just thinking back, twenty or more years and how we idolized the top Liverpool musicians of the time. Albie Donnelly of ” Supercharge ” Andy Parker, Gaz Gaskill amongst many others. Now, for young guys and girls shyly asking for a photo….its come full circle. The drought is over…I’m back and I don’t think I’ve ever felt better. Thank you all for your support this past year, it means more than you can imagine. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Easter Holiday….goodnight and thanks again….jak ( is back !! )

    That’s great Jak! It’s nice to hear some good news for a change.

    I hope the live bands are coming back to the clubs in a big way.

    Rock, Blues and Jazz on real instruments, is where the musical diamonds are found IMHO.

    He certainly sounds American.

    Thanks Mel; it was a fabulous night man. Yup, that’s the guy….a Gentleman. It was like a ” Gretsch ” appreciation society. Jim our guitar player has the Brian Setzer autograph model. Darren from ” the swinging bricks ” had another, John another, plus that electric on the clips. He was outstanding. For the record, the bands on the night….
    We opened
    Darren played solo.
    Mike Badger and the shady trio. ( Mike has kept R&R, and rockabilly prevelant on the Liverpool scene, often putting his hand in his own pocket to pay the bands….what a guy !! )
    Finally, John Lewis.
    If rockabilly is your thing, check out the lineup on you tube. It was an amazing night….the first of many !!

    Hi Jak

    It’s been a very trying week and things just seem to grow worse, but listening to these tracks again certainly makes me smile.

    Will you be able to do an upload sometime?

    Hi Jeff. I’m sorry to hear you’ve not had a good week. It goes without saying, if there is anything I can do, please just ask. Downloads \ uploads are problematic. I’m only using a cheap pad and it’s storage space is full. I’m awful with computers, and worried if I start deleting , I may lose the tracks I’ve bought from Johnny, plus a lot of other bits. I have a friend who is a teacher. He’s looking out for a decent laptop for me. Hook that up to a decent soundbar, and I’m good to go. Chin up my friend. Its an awful feeling when things go from bad to worse, but it will pass Jeff, it really will. pm me if you want to chat, as I say, if I can help in any way, not a problem at all. Take it easy man…jak

    Hi guys, thanks for the support. My stress comes from the manic South African political scene where billions of Rands in investments are erased overnight, through arrogant decisions and ignorant comments. We have all seen what became of Zimbabwe and unless something changes soon, all South Africans will become slaves to debt.
