Wear My Hat

Other Men's Flowers has attracted some criticism for being frivolous and aimed almost entirely at the very young. I am told it lacks gravitas and offers practically nothing of interest to those nearing the end of long and useful lives spent mostly in the service of others.

HERE, then, is a little treat for all those good people who need to have their glasses changed twice a year and their feet done every month. It is a performance by a Mr Philip Collins, born in Chiswick in 1951 and, happily, still with us and getting about quite briskly.

This interesting fragment of the old fellow’s work was brought to my attention by my friend Lynn, Queen of the Blog Rings.

Nice one!

I'm not a fan of the man's solo work, but considering that I listen to Genesis' 'Selling England By The Pound' at least once a week, I'll give him his due as a great drummer.

Incidentally, said album features one of his first solo vocal performances and is unfortunately the low-point on the CD.

Perhaps you should returen to less serious matters now?
