I keep this picture with me in a little notebook that I carry around every day and it is pretty well travelled by now. I don't even think my Mum and Dad know that!
For me this picture is everything my Mum and Dad are. My Dad, a burly, generous and loving man and my Mum, the kindest person I know who always puts others before herself and has an incredible sense of fun. She is my best friend.
I think these pictures are the root of my love for the the 70s and its crazy ways. My dad looks like a rock star and my mum, the gentle earthly soul that she is. Whilst neither of my parents played in a band, music did have a big part of their lives and my childhood. Our house was never quiet. So... I have been thinking about who my folks would be if they had been musicians!
I have no idea why, maybe it was played on our many car journeys, but this song reminds me of my parents every time I hear it. I want to share it!
