FIFA soccer champ Md. Phirkhan & Daddy Boy

Quiet and unassuming, Danny Boy (I gave him the name), is the original drummer of the Silver Strings from the early 60's, more than 45 years.
After the Strings, Danny played at the Holiday Inn with The Thunderbirds from 1983 to 1987 and at the Carriage Bar, York Hotel (image) till 2007. Free lancing now, he played at Vivo City in Nov. '08 (see group photo).

Danny is married, has two sons, Pheyroz (32), and according to Danny, is a hotel manager and Mohd. Phirkhan (19), Singapore's champion Fifa soccer player who has provided tips to enthusiasts on how to score in Fifa Online 2 (FOL2). Both are now well-known sons of Singapore!
