I left England for Australia in 1959 and lived there until 2012. I have travelled Australia extensively; hitch-hiking in my younger days and all manner of transport since. I now live in the Philippines. I grew up with the Beatles and the Stones but like most styles of music, although I can't say I get enthusiastic about rap. Played keyboards in a band for a while but my great love is my guitar which I mostly fill my spare time strumming. I wish I could say I play the guitar well but I don't, just enthusiastically.
