Kelly Groucutt @ 70

Kelly with KJS at the Dog & Gun, Tettenhall, Wolverhampton circa 1993
#965: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Yours Truly KJS posted this brief tribute to a personal hero of mine earlier today on Facebook and, upon reflection, I felt that it would be nice to also post it here at ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) thus:

"Today (Tuesday 8th September 2015) is what would have been the 70th birthday for the late, great Kelly Groucutt. People who know me will know that Mick Groucutt did a very special thing for me in September 1992. But apart from that, the enjoyment and outright fun that myself, Christian Evans, Dwyer Evans (and not a few other privileged souls) had seeing 'Kelly G' performing solo locally at places including Codsall, Tettenhall, Coseley, Pattingham, Brewood, Whittington, Himley, Wombourne (and many more) back in the day are still treasured memories. The only regret I have is that in those days photos were rare as we didn't have mobile 'phones and rarely took a camera along. Life can take away many things but memories are something that we can keep forever. RIP Mick 'Kelly' Groucutt ... and a Happy 70th birthday to ya!"

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 08-Sep-2015
