My First Instalment of my Blog of Mine What I’ve Done!

“You’ve always got something to say for yourself” they said. “Always got an opinion on this, that and the other”.

You should write a blog” they said, “…instead of cluttering up our Facebook news feeds….with your long winded dissertations!”

“Oh yes, and what do you suggest I write about?” I said

“Well, you had a successful career as a session musician didn’t you?” they said

“… and then built up a couple of multi-million pound businesses in the music industry” they said


“Well, you should share some of that knowledge with those people who care, instead of bothering us with it!” they said

“Right! I WILL”, I said.

“GOOD”, they said

“OK”, I said

and then we had another drink……

So, being a man of my word, I opened a WordPress account and here we are! My first instalment of my blog of mine what I’ve done.


I shall endeavour to make my posts witty, erudite and informative, but in truth I will probably end up upsetting people by being contrary and outspoken.

For the moment, though, I am using this rather short (in both words and content) post to try out the upload procedure.

How hard can it be?

  1. You turned in to a superstar!!!

    I am sure you will not remember me…I am Marina Douglas ‘little’ (49 year old!!!) brother who plays the classical/acoustic guitar. I don’t want to bore you (actually the real reason is I’m sure you won’t ever get to read this message so in reality to write much more would only be boring myself)…

    I would love your opinion on some of my own compositions though John. I have known for years you got to ‘the top’ and have always been so happy for you.

    Kind regards (whether you get this, or not!


    • Hey Chris. How’s it going? Of course I remember you – especially how you whipped my arse at squash! Let’s be back in touch. Lemme have your email address and I’ll reply. Look forward to catching up. Cheers matey!

      • Hi John,

        My email address is and I would love to hear from you – My number is 0777 123 1727. I added you on Facebook but I don’t use Facebook really. I’ve been watching your career from a distance and am in awe of what you have achieved – well done matey!!! Stay in touch please, or give me your number and I’ll call you.

        I was always too shy to play the guitar in front of you when I was younger, but I guess I’ve grown up a bit…(Geez…I’m 50!!!!) I write stuff now…mainly classical/acoustic…I started after the break-up of my 16 year marriage and being sent to prison for 3 1/2 years for a business ‘technicality’. I was a multi-millionaire and owned the largest property investment company in the UK. I had the lot…helicopter, penthouse in Marbella, Bentley (yawn, yawn…) all gone now – but I’ve still got the memories (ha!!!) – That’s why I don’t use social media – it can be cruel!!!!

        Well, if you get this then maybe we’ll speak soon and swap stories – If you don’t get it then you won’t know that I’ve been one of your millions of secret fans for a lonnnnnnnnng time – Cheers music man!

What've you got to say about THAT!!
