I’ve got a lot of appreciation for my Dad, I doubt he realises this, although he is stuck in his ways a bit, he has taught me a hell of a lot. I will likely reveal more over the years of my blog – I remember him saying one thing though, and that was that there is no more two interesting things in life than politics and cricket.
As much as I love music, I find it very hard to disagree that politics and cricket are both now fascinating to me – when he told me this as a child, I don’t remember what my response was but in my head it was “fuck off”.
But he was well on the ball when he said that.
I remember when I was about 8, insisting that he listened to Kylie Minogue. He couldn’t stand her. About 10 years later, he could really appreciate her.
Maybe now is about time to introduce my father to Sven Vath and Ricardo Villalobos?
Ha, ha, ha – happy father’s day on the off chance that you get around to working your way around the internet and onto my blog one day!
