You’d play some keyboards, i’d play some drums, then you’d play some drums and i’d play some keyboards, or maybe a little guitar.” ” Yes Paul, it was very much like that, god bless you, I believe we should all live and help to give each other what we need to survive” “I agree Stevie!, because you know, people are the same where ever you go, there is good and bad – ” (Stevie) “Mmm-hmm” (Paul) ” – in everyone”

We have reviewed the film in question and considered it in breach of guidelines for an educational television channel. We thoroughly enjoyed it though.”
