Hi George and Pat, No-one will ever top the Beatles for talent, writing and playing ability - not to mention vocal abililty. I bought their music book for guitar, and it's not until you start going through the songs that you realise just how many chords were in there! What sounds like a 4 chord song actually contains subtle chord changes and shapes that are difficult to imagine - and to play! I was in dorm 20 with Pat in Summer term 1962, along with David Ennis and others, but after half term I was transferred downstairs to dorm 3 then, after summer hols, into the notorious dorm 4. Happy days?

Yes Kev, it is the Stones for me, my favourite band of my time at Windsor was Alice Cooper and still is pretty much, but some of the stuff from that era hasn't stood the test of time so well, only last night i dug out some Uriah Heep, another band i used to listen to on my portable cassette player in the dorms of Balmoral House.... Ouch, i could feel myself shrinking into the armchair with my toes curling in my socks, maybe it's because i havn't heard them for so many years, but it sure didn't sound as good as i remember, All the best, Ken

Well guys,i still have all my vinyl, first lp i got was LOVE IT TO DEATH, Cooper. The days of the cheap 30 marks stereo player and cassette players were great in their time. Fortunately my stereo plays them all and the nasty cd's. I miss the art work of vinyl albums. Listening to radio luxemburg under the bed sheets when lights out, we were spoilt for choice, luxemburg was about all i got. Marty swarz on you tube for learning some good guitar.

School Chaplin was either John Fielding but more likely was Stuart Brindley. Father to Martin and Simon. Not been posting of late but Tony Webber gave me the sad news that Brian Kingston had died. Great bloke and part of the Maths Dept of which I was also proud to be a part. Those were the days and I think back fondly to all the fun that we had at WBS/WGS.. We did some Maths too. Happy New Year to all if it's not too late.
