Born in Essex in 1959. A year which produced great music with such classics as Varm korv boogie (Owe Thörnqvist), Hippy Hippy Shake (Chan Romero), Lipstick on your collar (Connie Francis), Är du kär i mej ännu Klas-Göran? (Lill- Babs) and the unforgettable Dream Lover (Bobby Darin).
Fidel Castro became Prime Minister of Cuba. Hawaii became the 50th state. Average House price in the UK were 2,410 GBP. The film Ben-Hur premiered and Simon Cowell was born. Things were good!
My 59 years have been split between 24 years in England and 35 in Sweden. That would have you believe that i am more Swedish than English. I will (in my belief) always be English though my percentual conception will change as the years go by!
