All things rockin, old films, and my kids!
Favourite bands and artists:
Elvis he was the original 'cat', all the 50s greats Carl Perkins, Gene, Buddy Holly, Charlie Feathers, etc etc.
Modern bands like Jack Rabbit Slim, Rockin Bonnie, Rusti Steele etc.
Restless, Blue Cats, Polecats and of course Stray Cats
I have been into the rockin scene since I was kid at school, its well over 30 years now since I found this scene and saw my first band!!
I love all things rockin when I started seeing bands Crazy Cavan were the 'coolest' thing on the scene, then I heard and saw The Blue Cat Trio and Restless, then the Stray Cats hit the planet with Runaway Boys! The Neo sound is still what I find most exciting even now.
I love bands that try to be different. I'll listen to and enjoy most of what the scene has to offer nowadays, there are some great acts out there and the events now are so much better run than they were in the '80's.
