I am from...

Been a long time since I did a Meme!  I found this on Lifecandy, and thought I would have a go.


I am from...

a house full of dogs, canaries, a duck and a parrot.

I am from a loving mother and a father who could never be what he needed to be.

I am from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, T-Rex, Slade and Bowie.  Then Quo, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and still Bowie.

I am from Airfix and Action Man, from Cowboys and Indians and playing John Wayne.

I am from Zulu and The 300 Spartans, The Sands of Iwo Jima and The Battle of the Bulge.  The Great Escape, Von Ryan's Express, Ice Cold in Alex and The Flying Leathernecks.

I am from Dungeons and Dragons, and my first guitar, with blood on the strings and pain in my heart.

I am from a deep depression, rescued by True Love.



Woah!  Funny what these things bring out isn't it?

Beatles and Stones and Sabbath, goes without saying their greatness and how much I adore them. T.Rex I love. Bowie I've loved my entire life. There was never a time I didn't know and appreciate his music (and his airbrushed-out doggie genitals). Deep Purple is a band I feel does not get a fair shake in current discussions of great rock and roll.

What is Quo?
I think I've got something different to check out. Thank you sir.

Yay! I'm so glad you did this. Ah, Bowie and "...with blood on the strings and pain in my heart." Beautiful.

wigsf - Quo are Status Quo, back in the days when they were the classic head-banger rock band.

Nanette - Glad you liked it!

Kiki - Control yourself! :-)

I am from California.
I am from poverty.
Glad to be from so many things and appreciate what I am now.
Write a post about what you are now. Much better, right?

TechnoBabe - Good idea!

Wow, some powerful words here RC, all the more forceful for what you've held back.

I'm glad all these elements managed to shape you into the guy we love!

Thanks Shrinky!
