Black and White is not the oldest album I own but it is the most important (the picture is of it framed and proudly hanging on my wall in my music room). In 1978, at the tender age of 13, I went to my first gig at the Glasgow Apollo and experienced the Stranglers, something that changed my life and made me who I am. The music, the performance, the audience and the venue are still with me today – etched into my memory. I found myself that night and have never looked back, I played in bands and still attend gigs when ever I can. I am proud to say that despite CD’s and digital versions, the original black and white coloured vinyl is still played today, it may be a bit worn (like me!) but still sounds fantastic.
