Back when I was eleven I discovered Buddy Holly. An older kid used to buy all Buddy’s singles and sell them on to me. I bought the Buddy Holly Story and played it to death. I still have that album and all the others.
I would have loved to see him with the Beatles! They would have got on.
Buddy always cheers me up!!

You could say that Lee is a colourful character! He certainly put on an incredible show!
When I was a kid I used to have this album called Bo Diddley Big 16. It had sixteen great numbers! Bo was a staple for all the Beat groups. A real originator. One of the greatest Rock ‘n’ Rollers.

A section out of his Burn The World epic that was developed further. A fabulous song from Descendants of Smith that should have been a single.

A great track of the Unknown Soldier album. Roy always enjoys duetting with female voices. On this occasion it’s Kate Bush with Dave Gilmour on guitar.
I’m playing this album today – sheer genius! What a great live band these were – one of the best!
The most beautiful love song. Originally recorded for Commercial Breaks but re-recorded for The Unknown Soldier.
