My fifth album ‘Mid Life Crisis’ was intended as a tribute to the late great Jake Thackray and I think that this track should appeal to his fans?
Many years ago – when I had a proper job – I was sitting around for days on end waiting for work to arrive and was stuck for something to do. My wife had started researching her family tree so in the hope that this would help fill my boring non-work time, I started doing mine.
Many years later after adding over 10,000 names to my tree I started teaching other people how to do the same.
Everything in this song is based on fact. It either happened to me to me or my pupils. Honest!
