#241: One of the benefits of social media is having the opportunity to 'meet' and dialogue with people who normally would never cross your path for a variety of reasons. Back in 2010 - via a mutual Facebook 'friend' - and as a result of our shared interests in the song construction and compositions of Jeff Lynne (ELO) and our mutual respect for Kelly Groucutt as well as an appreciation of several music genres - Yours Truly KJS connected with musical maestro and virtuoso Steve Midgley.
He had a great desire to reinterpret some of those ELO classics that he loved. He asked me a few times to help him find a cellist or violinist! But after all that time we spent 'talking' on Facebook chat and the ensuing email correspondence, I now regret that I didn't pick up the telephone to talk to or meet up with him. We had more than one common thread.
