20th CENTURY BOY - THE MUSICAL.

The smash hit musical is endorsed by Marc Bolans son Rolan who says:
Musical tastes change throughout a lifetime but there is always a band that stays close to our hearts.

Through song, laughter and tears, we come together to remember and keep a little of Marc in our hearts.

Thinking of Gary Irwin, & his family & friends today, 5 years on. R.I.P.
In memory of Gary, Dave Appleyard is releasing a new four track CD entitled The Promise - The Music And Words Of Gary Irwin, today:
1. Its There Youll Find Me
4. Let It All Out
As some members know, Gary sang with Dave in the band X-ERT, but he sadly passed away 5 years ago today. During the final months of his life they talked about music & lyrics. More recently, Dave worked on arrangements for the songs with the help of Dan Foster who used to work at Abbey Road Studios, & they have come up with some final mixes, two of which I have heard & they are beautiful. Gary & his family should be very proud.
The price for UK orders is £4.00, or £5.00 for international orders, both of which include postage & packing.
Please email Dave at email@example.com & he will send you a PayPal invoice which can be paid using a credit/debit card. All profit will be donated to an appropriate charity (Gary died of cancer) although it will be his family who will decide which one in due course.
I hope as many members as possible can support this very worthwhile cause.
In Remembrance of all the heroes.
