News : Trevor Horn made CBE

While most of the time the New Year Honours are awarded to the usual types - mp's directors etc, this year is no exception except one honour in particular stands out, it is so nice to see Trevor Horn awarded a CBE in this years New Year Honours, he has, by far been one of the most influential record producers of the last 30 years, from Franke Goes To Hollywood to Robbie Williams and everything in-between. A truly well deserved award :). (another notable award was Annie Lennox becoming an OBE).

Well the year is almost over, I got to see some great shows in 2010, some events were a little sad such as a-ha as a group being no more, their show was great and hopefully I will get around to posting some pictures I captured of the event.

Here is to 2011 and hopefully some more great shows (I should be seeing Gary Numan and Recoil in Manchester early next year - it being rescheduled from this year) and to great music - it's a little harder to find amongst all the tat around nowadays, but it is out there.

(hopefully I will be able to be a bit more regular with my posts in the new year)
