24/7 that’s what it takes

Decathlete Daley Thompson trained on Christmas Day. He assumed his major rivals were doing likewise, if they weren’t, he would be one step ahead. That’s dedication for you. In Newcastle’s Central Arcade at an early hour this Saturday morning two young musicians were out busking. Young Tyneside musicians Dylan Thompson and Alex Shipsey braved the cold as they worked on a few things. The Headhunters’ Chameleon and a Miles Davis modal piece sounded good. Dylan sitting on a beat box, Alex knocking out the bass lines, these Early Birds are doing the business. Jazz Lives!
