Sweet Childhood O’ Mine

SlashRobbie WilliamsI apologize for this post’s title. I just discovered that Slash (of G’n’R fame) was raised in Stoke-on-Trent. More than a little surprising. On balance I would rather be associated with Slash than with Stoke’s other famous rock star son — Robbie Williams.

    I guess that you are right. The former is the lesser of the two evils. 🙂

    BTW, has anything good come out of Sandbach?

    You’ve got a blog
    That it seems to me
    Reminds me of internet memories
    When everything was as fresh as a Geneva sky

    Now and then when I see your type-face
    It takes me away to that yester-place
    And if I stay too long I often break down and cry

    Woah, o oh sweet bloggin’ times
    Woah, o, oh o oh, such simpler times…

  4. Man! Tha’s cool. who cares about that other guy that people keep going on about here anyway?
