I just had to write and say how much I
love your site and how much of a help it has been to my own
"tribute to Rock 'n' Roll" website.
My name is David Hornby and I was born
in 1954, which makes me a little too young to remember when it was all
"happening", but at 47 y/o I still feel a twinge of envy
towards guys 10 - 20 years older than myself, who are able to
recollect the days of the Fabulous Fifties. If somebody could
build a time machine and offer me a one-way ticket back to the 1950s,
I'd be in that machine faster than you can say, "blue suede
I could sit and listen to people
talking about the Fifties for hours and hours. The era when
everything was so much better; cars were far more stylish with
their 'futuristic' tail fins and gleaming mass of chrome. When
we had Drive-In movies (instead of drive-by shootings). When
every diner was alive with the sounds of Rock 'n' Roll emanating from
Okay, we may not have had all the
things that this, present technological age has brought us, like
home computers and stuff, but what it may have lacked in the
technological department, it certainly made up for in everything else.
Obviously, I can only imagine what it must have been like to grow up
in 50s America, but from what I know about it, it must have been a
truly amazing time. Why did they let it end?
I know it's been said many times before
(and probably best remembered by Danny and The Juniors), but Rock 'n'
Roll will never die, and it's all thanks to people like you, Don, who
devote all their free time to showing others what a wonderful time the
50s were. Your website really inspires me and, as far as I'm
concerned, anyone who owns a computer and who hasn't dropped by your
site yet, just hasn't lived!
Please feel free to drop by my site
when you have a minute, Don. It's still under construction at
the moment, so please excuse the mess. I'm pretty new to all
this web building stuff, so please bear with me. You'll probably
recognize one or two of the furnishings (I hope you don't mind) and
there's a couple of fun puzzles that I compiled to keep any visitors
entertained. My friends are complaining that I haven't put
the answers up there yet, but I plan to feature them on Page #3 when
the time comes. It's just that I keep coming up with new ideas
for more "50s related" fun puzzles. I like to write
too (I think that's pretty obvious, by now. ha ha) and I'm presently
working on a short story with a strong 50s theme, that I'm hoping to
include on my web pages. The link for my website is:- http://www.geocities.com/bravejordy/
Thanks for all your help, Don, I really
do appreciate it. Your website is the best on the
Internet. Thanks again.
thank you Dave (07/09/2001
