from across the pond

When I was 21 I decided to go play my song in Europe. After landing in Luxemburg I made my way to London and started playing folk clubs, open mike and of course I was a busker. A busker is a musician/entertainer who plays in the subway staions street corners etc for tips. I had a great time doing this and meant several wonderful people who helped me survive and grow during my time by the Thames. One was roy middleton who let me crash on his couch for many months and was an avid fan of all things musical . Another couple that helped me was Mike and Dee , I never knew their last names but they made breakfast for me for the month I lived on Oakley street in Chelsea right off Kings row. these are all cherished memories and recently i have befriended a gentlemen from England known as tony James Shelvin. He is in town checking out music city for two weeks and I have been showing him the sights and sound of Nashville. He is a fine songwriter and a good man. I wanted to make sure I helped him in regard to the way all the people in London helped me so many years ago. so pay it forward is a international philosophy also. All for now. gary
