a gig meme! well hello. i love music i do. i like lots of different types of music. i can play lots of different instruments, not all very well though. it started with my parents who brought me up in a house continuously full of music. they both play guitar, my mum classical spanish stuff and the occasional la bamba and my father on his fender bashing out a bit of eric claptons, well maybe not just his but derek and the dominoes, leyla, whilst my mother jumps round the room like a loon, her name is leyla. this was my childhood. as i grew up and entered the early years of adulthood, i went on to work in the greatest pub in the world. the castle in brentwood. brentwood essex. yes home of the sugar hut, but before all that nonsense kicked in brentwood was a melting pot of punks, rockers, goths & ravers. the castle was a heady mix of everyone and the focus was on music. such a great place. however it most certainly is not now.
