Merry Christmas

December has been quite hectic here. On the 8th I went to Birmingham to get my back checked out – it has gone worse as always – and visit friends. Apart from the back I had a great time. Then on the 10th I was in Bilston with Don and the rest of Slade to see Slade’s gig at The Robin 2. Had a great night out and met loads of friends.
Tea has been busy as well, participating in the school Christmas musical and even doing some choreography for it. Now the Christmas holidays have started and we seem to be ready, the Christmas presents bought, the cards written, the baking done etc. So now all that is left is to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Time flies

I’m sorry it has taken me SOOO long to get back to this diary, but things are just too hectic at the moment. As usual my back problems don’t help, so a lot of the time I’m just not able to do anything and whenever I am, I spend the time on Don’s biography. Since I wrote on this blog last I’ve interviewed Dave Hill of Slade, Slade’s sound engineer Robin Lavender, Andy Scott of Sweet and Francis Rossi of Status Quo. I’ve also had quotes from Jim Lea, Jona Lewie and Craig Fenney and I’m in e-mail contact with Henry Weck, Suzi Quatro, Keith Altham and Len Tuckey. Furthermore I went to London in October to borrow scrip writer Andrew Birkin’s 1,004 negatives of Slade from the US tour in 1974.
I’m off to Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Bilston next week and upon my return I hope to finally get the time to prepare for Christmas…
