Great sounds.







Thanks to all of you for the company, and to Mountain for the music.




To Reap, Loki, Leslie, Felix and Steve,

VERY relevant!

Sad that for many bands (often British), the South was a no-go territory at this time.

So the inspiration for the song needed a Mountain to make it happen.

Yes that is Alaska - The highest mountain aka Denali (also known by its pathetic Mt McKinley).
Note this picture is from Peter's Hills which you can only reach by going on 40 miles of dirt roads and then walking another few miles.


well, suffice it to say i've never been to peter's hills, mwhahahaha. but i did kinda go all over the place... ATV ridin (i am an absolute ATV freak). i LOVE alaska. my banner pic on facebook is a shot i took from a helicopter...

sweet I do a little ATV when I"m up in Maine every summer. Although went for the kayak last year.
Nice didn't get to do a heli ride in Alaska, want to go back some day.

Thank yew, thank yew all!

I don't mind saying I was sorely blue after today's locked down events and grim grim news.

But this memorial and celebration of Leslie West has put a smile on my face and a bouncebouncebounce in my step.

Thanks be to you all!!

And tip of the cowboy hat to ALL absent friends,

*chink**
And the January man comes round again
In woollen coat and boots of leather
To take another turn and walk along
The icy road he knows so well
