Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is one of the most gifted musicians to have graced our planet in the last 100 years. His music has been diverse, inspirational, humane and uplifting. He continues to make great music in both pop/rock and classical genres.

My favourite McCartney song is of course BlackBird and my favourite McCartney album is Flaming Pie – which I feel captures him in his relationship with Linda and life just perfectly !

Andrew Lloyd Webber

I love musicals and my love of musicals began with the work of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Webber is much maligned by people the avant garde and I can’t really understand such judgement.

I absolutely love his Requiem !
