A Piece of my Cheerful Teenage Years Gone

Paul Hester, 46, the drummer with Crowded House and Split Enz, has killed himself.
Yesterday, band-mates Neil Finn and Nick Seymour told fans: "Over the years Paul has swung the extremes of happiness and sadness, but none of us ever thought this would happen. He loved life too much."
I've long been a fan of the Finn brothers and Paul Hester. Theirs is some of the only music that holds over from the 80's that I still and truly love. This is a very sad day. I will be playing 'Six Months in a Leaky Boat' all day.

A sad day indeed, and listening to those eighties tunes makes me feel oldStill, when all these young whippersnappers come out with their cover versions of Kate Bush, Talk Talk and Tears for Fears, at least I can be a boring old fart and say 'Hah! I've got the original on LP!'

Am I still a 'whippersnapper' if I've got Talk Talk and Kate Bush on those new fangled CD's?
