Sorry...I don't play music - yet. Until I form my band, I have to settle for writing about it, which is actually a pretty good gig until I'm frontlining the Troubadour. Hopefully, hidden deep within the links below you will find plenty of good music - and maybe, if you haven't heard a band, artist, album, or song I've mentioned, you'll even be inspired to check it out for yourself. Yes, sadly, recommendation is my only aim in writing about music - conning you into listening to what I'm writing about. I gave up my lofty dreams of becoming a rock n roll journalist a long time ago, and although I'll be recovering from this rejection for the rest of my life, the blow is softened by (most of) my CD collection and the fact that there is much, much more music for me to hear. Just think - some of it is being created right this second...
