For 2 years (1964 - 1966), I fronted Singapore guitar groups, recording artistes: The Velvetones/Firebyrds, Swallows and Silver Strings. Enjoyed fun and excitement those years.
Since I took an academic path afterward this blog serves as a coffee-stop and written to
(a) relive my missing music years,
(b) keep seniors posted about our local music,
(c) encourage music stories from readers,
(d) keep our younger generation, especially my 3J's, aware of our heritage and
(e) help students with term papers or information regarding popular culture and local music history in the 60's.
Although I have lived the age and participated in the music I am neither a music guru nor historian. No showing off past glories. Completed a Diploma in TESL (Victoria U., New Zealand); Cert. Eng Lit (U. of Aberdeen, Scotland); BA English Language/Literature (U. of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) and MA Applied Linguistics (Macquarie, Sydney, Australia).
