It's fun berating the previously egotistical

I have some Stuffies t-shirts somewhere, but no idea where my long sleeved hup one went

Since Tom is just a shade older than me, he's definitely on a wind up - agewise if nothing else

At one point, even though I loved the band and their music my favourite line was Miles Hunt he's a (something that rhymes with Hunt)....
I remember the band just didn't know the lead singer was called Myles Hunt.Just thought you might have been talking in cockney rhyming slang.

At times the words Miles Hunt were definitely cockney rhyming slang Tom

Miles Davis - and about 20 other musicians associated with him (Herbie Hancock especially)
lots of jazz piano
60s/70s soul
Paul Weller
Hip hop (i.e NOT Jay Z, 50 Cent etc...the stuff that's more lyrically conscious with better beats)

Classical music....I have Radio 3 on a lot at night.

I love to listen to the drum music used by belly dancers - amazing rhythms. Even better when they're accompanying a dancer.
