The First Major Rock Band I Ever Saw


Thanks to Dick, a guy that I was in digs with,  Zep are the first band I ever saw live. This was back in 1969. How he convinced me to go I will never know as, at that time, I had never heard of them. All I know is that it was a brilliant concert.

Later that year he also persuaded me to go and see John Mayall, another huge name in the British rock hall of fame. For me 1969 was a pivotal year as far as music is concerned. Since then I have seen many many bands.

So, where ever you are Dick (can’t remember your surname) from Chichester, thank you for awakening a love of rock music that has spanned over 40 years and is still going strong.

Led Zeppelin‘s concert film Celebration Day is released on video, November 19th. Here is their rendition of Black Dog from the 2007 O2 reunion show.

Mill is set to get new lease of life – What A Bargain


The mill is believed to date back to 1728, and there were originally two tidal mills battling to grind wheat and oats on the peninsula.

It was previously used as a tidal mill until 1935, making it the last working tidal mill in Sussex before it was pressed into service to build and repair naval boats during the Second World War.

There is something really strange that such a property, in such an attractive location, should be sold for such an amazingly small sum !!!

In an unusual move, no reserve price was put on the Grade II-listed brick-and-timber property at Birdham Pool Marina, Chichester Harbour when it went for auction.

With a zero reserve, bidding was fast and furious, and the gavel came down on a final bid of £62,000.

The potential for this property is out of this world even with the peculiarities of the British planning laws.

I am mystified.
