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
