Old Friend

News of the Day

Good luck to everyone marching up in Edinburgh today. Shame the police seem to have been taking pictures of pretty much anyone en route up there (see stories on the BBC about people setting off from Belfast and Euston, London).

Also I hope everyone going to the Live8 gigs has a great time. I actually only know two people who got tickets for the London show but the shows in London, Tokyo, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Moscow, Johannesburg, Barrie and Philadelphia are certainly helping bring the issue to the global publics attention - which is very good.

Also RIP Luther Vandross who died this weekend. I only remember a couple of his songs from the 80's and was never a fan but I can appreciate what he did for music and his millions of fans around the world.
