Favorite books :
I'm hoping to study English Literature and University, so I have a strong allurment to books, which I believe are just another part of the big tapestry of art that is expression, which includes music. Poetry is something I'm fond of and will write myself. John Keats, Sylvia Plath, Carol Ann Duffy, William Blake, Sassoon and Owen, Andrew Marvell and John Donne are just a few of the poets I admire. I'm interested in David Eaglemans' use of brain psychosis to create moral meanings through science. I'm also an avid reader of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles, Graham Greene and George Orwell. Terry Pratchet and Lemony Snicket are also big favourites of mine. And of course, we can't forget Shakespeare. I also love to read about musicians, particularily Cobain and Hendrix - and who can pass up on a good tab book?
Favorite tv :
Mock the Week, the Mighty Boosh, QI, Have I got news for you, Would I lie To you.
I'm Rob, I'm 17 years old and study at Sixth Form in the West Midlands. I am in a band called Dionysus Unbound, and we do mostly Blues Rock styles within our music. I own a Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster, and a Gibson Les Paul and SG. I was classically trained for 10 years, and I have become a prolific blues player amongst my local town of Rugby's music scene. I have played in a Metal band and an Alternative Rock band, and I have also studied at the Birmingham conservatoire.
