Mick! Don't say! I once stood next to Rod on a street in Soho, London. As he towered above me I looked down at his shoes. Moccasin type things and no socks. He had all his bodyguards(mates) around and all had been shopping.

it was wonderful. He came to watch a cricket match that I was playing in. His roadie played for us and Rod drove hin to the game in his white Rolls then carried his bags in for him - he stayed all day and Steve Harley (Cockney rebel) came over in the evening. He took loads of photos.
2 nicer guys it would be hard to find...
Rod comes from North London, my part of the world too.
And tomorrow is the first anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti. On one of the evening talk shows, there was a Haitian writer (who now lives in Canada as so many Haitians do) who said that foreign aid is so often off the mark in such catastrophes.

Thanks, Bixa. I really liked Janis Joplin. I like the picture around 2:15 where she is beside that straight-looking family, the father in particular looking as though he's wondering where she came from. No wonder she left Texas.
On this date in 1533, England's King Henry VIII secretly married Anne Boleyn, his second wife. And in 1961, US President John F. Kennedy held the first presidential news conference carried live on radio and TV. 1961!
