Hmmm. It would appear I overstepped the boundaries in what is deemed “off topic” or perhaps “advertising” on SMO FB.
In my defence – one: it was very much ON TOPIC as far as I was concerned, for I was merely theorising what Jim may do to celebrate his 60th birthday this July.
Secondly – I don’t advertise anything. Nothing on my blog is monetise and I don’t have advertising here. Perhaps I should have obscured or cropped out the ticket buying info of the screengrab of the Van Morrison gig I was referring to that he could go to for his birthday. But I would have thought it obvious that I was not intending to advertise anything.
I mean, yeah, Van’s giving me kickbacks. Geez! *rolls eyes*
Anyway…I shall discuss my non-endorsement, non-kickback, non-advertisement SUGGESTION of what Jim may be able to do to celebrate his birthday.
The Who play Wembley Stadium on July 6th – there’s one SUGGESTION…
Van Morrison plays The Roundhouse in London on July 6th & 7th – there’s another SUGGESTION…
Jim could indeed enjoy BOTH shows that weekend. Or indeed (as I alternatively SUGGESTED), Simple Minds could throw a gig around that time and we as fans could celebrate his birthday with him…unlikely as that option will be.
Anyway…no matter what he decides to do for his birthday, I hope he celebrates it well, and has many more to come.
Sorry to go “off topic” SMO FB. Heaven forbid someone should talk about music on a music page (albeit a specific band page…can we not talk about their influences? Did Jim not talk of Van Morrison within his most recent post?).
