I read absolutely anything. I especially love Douglas Adams, Steven
King, James Herbert, Bernard Cornwell, Biographies, Ray Bradbury
and The Far Side cartoons by Gary Larson
I'm not a great Movie-Goer but am more likely to see things when
they're on TV, not that I watch a lot of TV either!! Now I know
what 'torrenting' is I can watch whatever whenever!
I have an amazingly wide and varied taste in music. From Punk to
Puccini, Motorhead to Mozart and all stations in between!! From
20's Blues, through 40's/50's Swing/Rock 'n' Roll and Jazz right up
My main loves are the Blues, Ska and Reggae. I still love 80's
Rock/Hair Metal as it's what I used to play for a long time in a
Band as well as more up to date Rock/Metal.
