Hi All.
Just start by saying that I am 66 and probably one of the younger old age pensioners frequenting this forum. It is a fact that we were brought up on feast of excellent music, George Shearing, The duke,
Ted Heath, etc. etc.but I dont think anyone should knock all the modern music. Everyone,
regardless of age, should look at all types of music. Some of the music that has been written in the last few years is exceptionally good, I agree that there is also quite a lot of rubbish, but even in 'our era' as you might call it, there was also some rubbish tunes.Good music is whatever you enjoy playing, I personally enjoy the rock 'n' roll stuff because I think it has had the greatest impact on popular music over the last fifty years.
The thing is you have the facility of a fantastic keyboard in the KN and you can sit at it and play anything that takes your fancy. So to finish, my favourite big band piece is 'Skyliner', and to the other extreme is 'Road to Hell' by Chris Rea and when they finally put me in a box and send me off to wherever we go, these are the two tunes they will play for me.

Regards to all
Peter B

Hi Peter
Shades of ďIíll Remember AprilĒ and Charlie Barnett.
In my box will be Trumpet Blues (Harry James)
Ted Heath (Listen to my music) his signature tune.
April in Paris, (One more time) And millions of others.
But as nearly all the musicians now are in heaven.
I will be able to hear them Live (or dead) Iíll be there
Regards.

For Johnnie.c,

Having read through the above, believe me I didn't mean in anyway to offend the older members of the forum. Some of my friends meet this category and I trust them more than some friends of my own age (18 going on 19).

To all those offended, you have my sincere apoligies and deepest regards.

As ever,

Luce

Luce,

I love the outdoors, so my 78 year old skin may be thicker than others. Foggie is much nicer than Goat.

Peace brother and sisters.

Fran (Looking forward to 79) in Florida

hi there everyone i have not been on the site for a while I have just qualified for the title of senior citizen and love music of every kind,but enjoy some more than others as i love food but enjoy chocolate ice cream more than sprouts, why is everyone bothered about other peoples taste in music , there is good and bad in all genres,and all eras, if you are over 60 listen to Britney Spears "Everytime", if you are under 40 listen to Ella Fitzgerald "Everytime we say Goodbye" If you are between 40 and 60 listen to them both. I think they are both lovely songs but maybe you do not!

Just a thought

No Derek. Your a very,very,very, nice man.
(as the advert says). Keep on playing,and you will stay young. Can you say. (apart from a few stiff joints),that you feel old?.

In your mind I bet you think you still "21"
and so you should!!

Regards.
Joe

Wow, Derek, I had no idea you were that old. I thought I was about the oldest one here and I am only 73 this month. I hope I get to 81 and still able to play these keyboards.
BEst to you and all others that are my senior peers

PS: Who is the oldest and youngest in this forum? Never mind I will go start another thread in the Bar Forum, if I can remember what I am there for when I get there
