E tu, Frank? E tu?


Me? Quo Vadis, Yves?

I was born in 1959, January to be precise, and I was a pretty active baby and toddler, from then on. My mother (85 now) repeatedly told me that I had breast-feeding for a long, long time. Of course our Minnie will immediately step in with all kinds of unsavoury accusations - that is her particular problem, no need to emphasize that. Be sure that this communication of mine has been a lovely truth in our family for long decades by now.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

That is what I have been debating with myself for years now. But I know now that he will never, ever stop, and that he has complete immunity to do what he likes.

Buddy Guy cut his first records in the late 50s.

In fairness, dropping an unsolicited ‘how long I bapsucked’ bomb in the middle of an unrelated thread rather suggests the problem may lie with someone a little closer to home!

Glad to know that a fair number of 50s artists are still with us. Amazing really - after all, it's 2021.

He did an album, Blues With Friends, just last year. Lots of big names blues. Not too bad if you like that sort of thing.

I quite like this one.

Oh please do not misunderstand, I love Dion; I was merely joshing with Tym because I had already mentioned him on the first of the thread.

No need for sorry, as I say I am joshing. And we both thought of Dion!
