I've always said every day after 80 is gravy. I would love to think I'll make it to that age. Ginger has nothing to be ashamed about.

Diabetes, asthma, lack of exercise and excessive drinking.

Don't think you need to worry about the bunting.

Interestingly I read this in the café red tops today that Peter was going to give free drum tuition for an east London charity - One Drum Foundation

A cantankerous old git but I wish him well

One of my musical heroes!
