Happy Birthday Grahame Rhodes

Posted on: Sunday, Jan 28, 2007

Yes indeedy, blues lover, family man, Chester City supporter, top bloke, and bluesinthenorthwest.com contributor Grahame Rhodes is celebrating a significant milestone on this very day.

Born in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear on 28 Jan xxxx
Politeness prevents me from mentioning his actual age (think C/2) however please let me wish Grahame all the very best from bluesinthenorthwest.com for this year and all the years to come.  There’s a picture of Grahame below for anyone who doesn’t know him.
As you read this we are probably both suffering from a significant hangover – so wish him well and give us both some sympathy.

Belated birthday greetings, Grahame. I don’t know which is worse: being born in Gateshead or being that ‘unspecified’ age. On the other hand, as someone who was born in Mold and who is substantially older than you, what do I know?

Many thanks guys for your kind comments – thanks Mike for the best wishes of the Cadillacs; Lionel we would have loved to have you and family there last night but we were a bit tied on numbers. It was a tremendous night – I was surrounded by great friends and family and the band were superb. Neil Partington brought his rhythm section and were augmented by Mr. Kenneth Peace of the Peoples Republic of West Yorkshire, who not only played some great harp, but also sang! Neil did us a big favour – he is a truly top guy and such a talent. Don’t think I’ll do a review, but highlights were “Shakey Ground”, “The Shape I’m In” and a belting T-Birds tune, “I Believe I’m In Love With You”, which I thought Neil and Ken used to do in their old blues band, but staggeringly they did it off the cuff!
