Hi, I’m Fred Jones, a sixty-year-old veteran. I’ve turned sixty-one just this weekend, so officially, I’m a sixty-one-year-old veteran. I joined the forces in 1982 and worked hard all these years until I retired in 2006.
I’ve lost a lot of my time and still making up for that to my family. But on turning sixty-one, I realized I hadn’t done anything I wanted to.
So, like any older man, I decided to talk about the things I love and the things that kept me alive. Apart from my sweet wife Jules, I was a die-hard fan of rock music back in my day.
Not to brag, but I played as the lead guitarist of my high school band, “the crew.” The five of us will write our songs and perform everywhere we can. We even did a messy job in one of our school contests. We didn’t win any prizes. I don’t think the judges even considered us.
But still, we played every day in Ted’s basement. His mother hated it. But we were young and inspired. We had a milestone of three world tours and two UK tours. It was all solid until I left for the Forces. I think I broke the group. But now, I found all those Crew members. And we play every evening in my basement.
Among several bands and artists over the years, I’ve been a dedicated fan of the Rolling Stones and Queen. And this is why I started this blog. As I said, I’ll speak about the things I’ve been interested in.
I read newspapers and listened to the radio, even at my worst. The news was quite dead, but the radio never disappointed me. I still listen to those songs on YouTube at the highest volume. If you want real rock music taste, try and listen to the Wild Horses (Live).
