In 1973 I recorded my first LP for Elton John’s Rocket Records. It was decided to wait to release it until my summer holidays. Unfortunately my voice broke and the album was shelved 50 years later its finally time for Rocket Boy.

I’ve spent the week with Tim Hamill working on tapes nearly 50 years old. I’ve had the chance to sing with my 13 year old self or change that drum fill I was never happy with. Having Tim with me on the journey was a godsend. He had all of the tools to make every idea a reality and also the judgement to say ‘Mal…Enough.’
Mark Twain said, ‘Find a job you enjoy doing and you’ll never work a day in your life’. I get the feeling that is where Mike Kennedy is these days. It’s all very well wanting to live out a dream but without the right skills that dream can soon turn into a complete nightmare. Mike has 38 years of retail experience and that gives everyone confidence.
