Break in transmission...

Yeah, I know, I know!  I've been gone ages - and I only nipped out for a portion of chips (a large one, since you ask - salt, vinegar but no mushy peas).  Time flies.  And I'm sorry I've not been visiting others as much I would like to lately either.

I lost my blogging hat while I was out - but it must be around somewhere, so I'll keep looking.  In the meantime, however, here's a photo of Justin Hayward and Ian Gillan in a 1960s fashion shoot.  I just wish it was in colour!  I suspect there's some deep purple in there somewhere and maybe a moody blue too...

  1. If they were starting out now surely some bright spark would be calling them Jayward. Anyway, seems I was ahead of you for once. Welcome back btw.

  3. Good to have you back ! As an artist, can I ask what you get if you combine a (moody) blue and a (deep) purple ? Were this terrible duo known as JustIan ? Surely that's unfair on Mr Hayward ? Did they sing "Nights in Deep Purple " perhaps ? Sorry - too many "Question"s. Is it time for me to "Go Now" ? Do I need to "Hush" ? ;-)

  4. This is actually the new Deep Purple line-up:
    Ian Gillan - screams and bongos
    Justin Hayward - beads
    Ian Paice - drums (he never leaves).
    Can't wait for the tour.

  5. Ah a chance to wheel out my fave Malcolm Tucker quitation from The Thick Of It - "people have no opinion of you you're like Special K or the fucking Moody Blues - that's you, just white noise in the background..." A sheer genius summation of one of the most pointless of sixties bands - but not I hasten to add of SDS!

  6. Lordy, what do they look like... I bet they both regretted those outfits in the next decade when they both pioneered the "weekend Dad" look Jeremy Clarkson has since mastered ;o)

  7. Actually glad that is black and white!

    However two greats who are still going today and that is no mean feat itself. Luckily though their fashion sense moved on a bit.

    Happy return btw

  8. Ah, there you are. I was about to muster up a search party. Why are those two dudes wearing my pyjamas?

    Good to have you back, you've been missed.
