Hello!

Postby Melanie » Tue Nov 20, 2012 3:40 pm

Hello everyone, my name is Melanie (not Mel :wink: ) and I'm new here. I'm a huge lover of the fifties and sixties, live in the south of England and I've liked Billy Fury for a fair few years now but sadly never had the opportunity to see him live, more's the pity. I look forward to getting to know everyone here and if there's anything you would like to know (within reason), ask away!

Thank you for the welcome!

Well as I said I live in the south of England and I am married with one house rabbit.

I grew up with my grandparents so my musical tastes have always been a little dated compared to my contemporary's. I used to listen to almost exclusively sixties music and Billy was my first delve into the previous decade and now the majority of music I choose to listen to is rock and roll/rockabilly, r&b and doo wop. I do though like the odd thing that's more modern, usually if it has a nice retro feel to it.

I like to write fiction, sew my own clothes, make jewellery, bake cupcakes and take photographs.

I was known in the village I just moved away from as being the one who liked the 50's because of the way I dressed and would often get (somewhat older) men winding car windows down and blowing me kisses or honking me as they passed :lol: People where we now live are quite fascinated by me and often chat to me about what I'm wearing and I often get remarks such as "Is that 40's or 50's?" but it's all positive reactions I get, which is nice.

Welcome Melanie :)

I think you will get along with all the other fiction authors that we have on our wonderful forum. :)

So far there are three of us and one budding author who would never admit to it - would you Kevin :?: :wink: :D

I'm sure if you come along to one of our get togethers - then you would be able to wear your fifties clothes with style. :)

Some of the artists do shows in your neck of the woods but the meet ups are generally in Mill Hill - London, Blackpool, Northampton and Evesham in Worcester. :)

We don't have a car which leaves me dependent on public transport and that is so expensive, but I'll keep an eye out for local-ish things.

Welcome, you picked a great song for your signature, as soon as I read it I knew you were a real rock and roller. Which club do you go to Bournemouth, Fareham? You wont find too many rockabilly fans here but its a nice site to belong to, have a nice time, Bob/
