Sandy Nelson was one of the best known rock drummers from the early 60's. One of his early solos, Let There Be Drums is still a benchmark to this day for up and coming drummers to come to grips with.
This video was taken live in 1999 when Nelson was 61 years old. Not bad aye.
You need to give it a few moments to get rolling.
And from a later time Phil Colins
And Gordo in Sydney....wow!
I may not be alone when I recall shops from when we were kids. The place you rushed off to when you were lucky to have a shilling more or less to blow on whatever you liked. I can still remember the smells of those shops. Remember the cold milk shakes in the fluted metal containers? The smell of liquorice and aniseed balls?
The Kandy Korner in Nelson is one of those shops from my young days that remains almost untouched for 60 years.
So we are 400 meters up in the hills (sweating in the heat) and here is a horse paddock! One of the animals takes a liking to Robyn and I being there so I took a selfie then showed her (a female) the result and she eyed it closely.
Its been a great holiday with weather like I remember as a kid.
But we never had cafe's or many shops for that matter back then so I am wondering what the hell we did when we we had done the outdoor thing and it was lunch time? Oh thats right, we had picnics complete with flies and sand. Make mine a double shot please.
