Day 84 – There’s A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

So this song is from Starlight Express. Whenever I think of this it reminds me of my School and University accomplice, Andy Mackay, who when he went to see the show as a child got his arm stuck in the hydraulic protection screens. Always makes me laugh. Day Off Well we seemed to have landed […]
