The end of the beginning 2

Dear Lifelines friends. We received many emails on the re-start of the Lifelines website. Thank you for your kind words and support in general. I look forward to any contributions (photos, stories, facts and data) you may be able to donate to the website. Thanks for everything. Ben & Luigi. (Contact us here for contributions.

The end of the beginning

An email I recently received from a faithful supporter/donor of this website, after my decision to close the donor section:

“It is so sad to hear about this. Being a musician myself, it has become impossible to make a living trying to write, make, an play music. Nobody gets paid anymore. Everybody thinks everything should be free. Nobody pays for music anymore, and nobody goes out to see bands play live anymore. Everybody is ripping everybody off. It is disgraceful and disrespectful. I know you to work very hard at this and you certainly deserve the respect of all the work you've done over so many years. I feel if somebody knows who is leaking the material then it should be made public. Please feel free to post this to the entire lifelines paying community and non-paying community so maybe people will wake up and get a clue.

Jimi goes Wilde

Steve Rodham, editor of the Jimpress fanzine, sent me this recent news. Steve's remark: "Is this for real? Looks more like Oscar Wilde to me." Indeed. Or as my daughter Nina would say: "Pics, or it didn't happen."

Fame at last
