2012: A Year In Review Part 1
So, that was 2012? And how did it treat you? For me it was a year of massive ups and pretty big downs!
January started well, with wedding planning and a trip to TNA Impact in Manchester, where I interviewed then TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Roode and tag team legend Bully Ray (formerly Bubba Ray Dudley). So that was kinda cool!
March was a busy one for me, I went to Manchester to see one of my favourite bands 3 Doors Down, reviewed it for Soundsphere Magazine, but also interviewed one of my musical heroes, Chris Helme (The Seahorses, The Yards). 3 Doors Down were good, but let down a crowd who came to hear Kryptonite. The real highlight of the month for me was meeting up with Chris Helme to record the show, I had met Chris a few times in years gone by, but never really had time for a chat. Chris invited me to his house for the recording and was a great guest. We talked his musical history, including The Seahorses, who recorded one of my all time favourite albums in the late 90s, and played tracks from his new solo album, The Rookery.
I also spent a few days in London with one of my very favourite people, Kerry. This trip was my first experience of the legend that is Megabus, arriving over 2 hrs late, but really cheap, so...
