Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Murder Trial Verdict

Well the sad case is over now and Mark Arthur found guilty of the murder of Heather Arthur. No need to repeat the details as I'm sure there will be plenty media coverage including tomorrow night on BBC Look North after sentencing takes place.
May Heather now be allowed to Rest In Peace

Justice has prevailed, and will allow those of us who knew Heather to have closure and move forward in this knowledge. Rest peacefully my friend, I think of you each time I sing Autumn Leaves...this one is always for you... with love xx

Yes Kath, and I fondly remember Heather singing 'Round Midnight' on the same occasion at the Star pub. God bless her children. I'm so glad I knew Heather.

Hi Lance good to see you on the telly !
Wish me luck, just bought a tenor sax for
my eightieth birthday. Still enjoying things
at the Black Horse.

Well Laurie it wasn't exactly how I wanted to make my début on telly - far from it. One of the saddest moments I've ever experienced.
On a brighter note - Good to hear you''re now a musician as well as a drummer!
