CRANKY YANKEE NEWS for visitors wanting to play in UK (56* d) RE: NEWS for visitors wanting to play in UK 25 Feb 02


Look, I don't know how it is now, but I was stationed in England with the USAF between 1957 and 9161. I was an "Off Duty" singer/musician. I had to get written permission from the Secretary of State in the Home Office for every performance we did off base. BUT, IT WAS NOT HARD TO GET. It was simply a matter of following the rules. We used to perform in clubs, at fetes and even in theater concerts. I sat in with the Vipers Skiffle Group and with Chas. McDevitt and eventually recorded for the Parlophone company. A simple request for permission in a letter was all that it took to obtain the Home Office's Approval. TRY GOING THROUGH PROPER CHANNELS WITHOUT HAVING A CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER AND YOU'LL SEE HOW EASY IT IS.
