Looking back can be a lot of fun. I closed out the 1970s (and what a great decade it had been) with these two fanzines – DEEP PURPLE MAGAZINE 8 & 9. Two 1976 covers. The journey was on and the 1980s was coming up. I was 18 at the time and I had just started to write about rock in Helsingborgs Dagblad, a newspaper down south, on the strength of my reputation as a Deep Purple fanzine editor. Within months it would get bigger and bigger. Good times.

The blog is doing fine. I think I have landed in a good place. I have left a couple of Purple related facebook pages since they would ignore suggestions for links that I know people would have enjoyed. I can not stand that sort of thing. The Tommy Bolin facebook pages are alright. The Babymetal Universe and the Sakura Gakuin & Babymetal pages are the best and I support them.
