Re: Still got the Blues: Gary Moore 1952-2011

No, Slawek isn't my dad :-) I met him several times though, at concerts. My father played with the band recreationally (it was in his student times, he had moments when he considered music career but he saw he wasn't good enough), but some of his band mates made career as musicians. "It's all middle...

Re: Stupid question of the day

One of my children drew a rainbow at school. Should I be concerned? Concerned that she's not heterosexual or that she will join the tacky-dressed people in Bang Bus and ride around Camden pestering innocent pedestrians? I swear I will forget my trauma and go to Camden again to see your face behind ...

Re: Still got the Blues: Gary Moore 1952-2011

You're listing my father's favourite bands, which probably explains my surprising (given the crap they played for my generation) taste in music. He played the guitar and harmonica in a blues-rock band for some time when he was young. Slawek Wierzcholski on harmonica from Rawa Blues Festival - the be...

For me Valentine’s and all anniversaries were nothing more than an excuse to eat some forbidden food :-)

Re: RIP thread

Not all Norwegians were heroes, but each of those who were count for a thousand men. The history will never forget them. I once jumped on the train towards Ski, but I wasn't sure if it was stopping there. I asked people if it was going to Ski pronouncing it like "sky". Only one Viking lady figured o...
