Oh my!
It is a sad day!

We were listening to his rendition of Little drummer boy here at work during the x-mas holiday!
He will certainly be missed!

I took my grandson to see him at the Isle of Wight festival in 2004. Kristian was 7 and had been a fan for 2 or 3 years.

1973, the year I joined the RN, my tape collection, all 2 of them, consisted of David Bowie and Kris Kristofferson. Well I had to travel light.

2 tapes!? You must have really liked them, for you must have had to listen to them a lot!

Tape players weren't overly portable in them days. And what with all the issued kit I had to carry. And no headphones either. It's funny, I miss them days. Didn't seem like it at the time but looking back, they were less complicated. Fewer choices I suppose.

I remember tape players! Used to make life quite fun when we were younger. We could tape ourselves being goofy and play it back!

The smallest one I could find was still as big as a lunch box. And I had the smallest one. (stop sniggering at the back). And it didn't record. The NAAFI at HMS Sultan in Gosport had a disco on a Saturday night. It was one of the best. It attracted blokes from other bases and girls from everywhere. I couldn't dance to save my life but the music was the best of the 70's.
