Old Blues on You Tube...

Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

Old Blues on You Tube...

Post by Great Plum » Wed Apr 13, 2011 11:06 pm

I thought I'd try and post daily an Old Blue who is on You Tube...

I'll start with Jess Greenfield (LHB 94-01)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeDp86MW98U

She is singing here with the Pete Moore Orchestra - a couple of days ago she was singing backing vocals for Dionne Bromfield on Blue Peter!

She was on the same year as my sister and she has a wonderful bluesy soul voice - she sang at both my 18th and my wedding! :)

Great Plum,
Excellent. I had never heard of her before, and the You Tube entry doesn't even mention her by name. Why don't you post her full name and a few details - a bit of publicity never does any harm!
:shock:

Excellent idea, Matt. Good luck with it.

Meanwhile there are several dozen YouTube videos of Old Blues to be enjoyed at my blog: http://trongon.blogspot.com.

Apologies for not posting anymore, but things have been somewhat fraught recently... (I will explain later but those of you with facebook probably know!)

My next one is a biggie - Christ's Hospital and Gene Simmons - the lead singer and womaniser from the rock band Kiss came and 'taught' at CH a group of LE (I think) for a series on Channel 4 called Rock School. Our very own Eruesto (Josh Bell) was the lead singer of the band called 'The Class'. The episode below is the final one in the series, filmed 6 months after they opened for Motorhead (yes really!) at the Hammersmith Apollo. 3 minutes in is quite chucklesome...

Indeed...

Latest Youtube offering here:

'Wolf Alexander' is actually Sacha Wolstenhome (son of Mr Wolstenholme who was the head of IT in the 90's) Sacha was on the year below me at school - very strange to see him as a wrestler!

Sorry, this 'daily' you tube vid isn't very 'daily' at the moment...

The latest offering is from Matthew Kimberley who was on the year above me at CH (91-98). He has a website called www.howtogetagrip.com and has written a book of the same name. The clip from youtube below is him reading out one of the comments sent into his blog... (strong language!)

Ha Ha Ha!!!!!! I see that youtube seems to have a thing about Matt; having watched I tried one of his populat (all of 5 views) "how to" videos (listed on the right) only to be told that Youtube is down and try in 30 minutes. No wonder he has only had 5 views. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Edit: definitely Mattism; youtube allowed me to see and listen to the Spanish Flea with a taste of honey immediately after their "failure"

Another couple of videos for you...

Some of you have probably heard of Frankmusik (Vincent Turner - I'm guessing his years were 97-05) When at school, I remember him as being a very talented jazz pianist (also very irritating - I remember taking 3rd form prep in Maine B on my deps - he was hard work!!) Since leaving CH, he has become quite a well known record producer and has remixed a number of records as well as releasing at least one album of his own. He also was known before Frankmusik as Mr Mouth, and is an incredible beat boxer. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgAj5NGx ... re=related

This has been his biggest hit single to date: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkuaUwFcI1w

The girl in the video is Holly Valance (Flick Scully from Neighbours) The lucky so and so went out with her for a while!
