Kenton Cool - 'Mr Mount Everest'

I've been lucky enough to have met literally thousands of film, pop and sports stars over the years, and all too often the word legend is over used for many of these people..

In my book Kenton Cool is a real true life legend and a hero - it was a pleasure and privilege meeting Britain's leading alpine climber, who has successfully climbed Mount Everest twelve times!  Yes 12 times!!

John Hurt RIP

Security at this event wouldn't allow anyone to have a photo taken with the great John Hurt (hence the big arm pushing me away), they even told me to delete this 'quick grab' selfie, which I made out that I did..
..but I didn't! And I'm glad I didn't!

RIP Mr John Hurt, magnificent actor..

Kate Bush 'Before The Dawn' Concert Memorabilia

Kate Bush concert programme, concert ticket (opening night 26/08/14) and 3 pieces of actual original concert confetti from a stage performance of 'Before The Dawn'

Kate Bush Memorabilia Befor The Dawn  kate bush confetti

Item code: 260814

The confetti blew into the audience during the Ninth Wave portion of each concert (photo above). They measure approx 2¾ x 4¾” and the written extract is the same as that which appears on the back of the Hounds of Love album jacket, which is taken from the Tennyson poem “The Coming of Arthur”. The written extract on the confetti can also vary from piece to piece in terms of positioning, some are perfectly centred, while others are printed more towards the top, bottom or sides.

The ticket opening night, dated 26th August 2014 - a wonderful collectors item and most sought-after piece of music memorabilia from one of the UK's most iconic and influential singer/songwriters.

The programme is more like a book! A beautiful book, this isn't your typical cheap looking programme with staples down the middle that you normally get from concerts. A lot of thought and effort went into the design and layout of this and it shows. In fact, this is probably the nicest and most stunning programme ever! The front and back outer covers have got a wonderful texture to them, almost velvety. The printing on the front cover (and the feather design on the back) have been done with spot varnish printing. It can be tricky to see, unless you hit it with the light at a certain angle (see photo). The inner front and back covers, along with the end papers, are printed with that same fantastic seabed design found on the artwork tickets and lithograph.

Sunderland FC boss Gus Poyet said the club needed a miracle to stay up, and it looks like Sunderlands 'great escape' have answered his prays...

 

Less than three weeks ago, Sunderland were seven points from safety - with a point away at Manchester City and victories over Chelsea, Cardiff and Manchester United it's little wonder Gus Poyet believes a little intervention has helped his team take 10 points from the 12 available!

Badly Drawn Boy - Sat 20th April 2013

Musician and Mercury Prize Winner Badly Drawn Boy has kindly agreed to waver his performance fee and expences to make a guest appearance at the Ethan Rees Linwood Memorial Music Charity Event in Thaxted, Essex on Saturday 20th April 2013.

 

Badly Drawn Boy (aka Damon Gough) is a close friend of Genuine Memorabilia’s Dave Sherwood - who is a close friend of the Linwood family. When Damon heard of the tragic loss of Ethan from Dave he immediately said he would support the music event and the Linwood family. Ethan was only 11 years old at the time of the car accident and the day Dave spoke to Damon about the music event, it was actually the day of Damon’s own son’s 11th birthday!

 

Damon: “It really struck a chord with me being Oscar’s 11th birthday and I had a few tears, I just can’t imagine what the Linwood family are going through right now. I said to Dave that I would love to attend the event and support the family, to me it’s probably the most important event I’ll ever do”.

Karl Hinett - A True Hero

Over the festive period GenMem's Dave Sherwood was lucky enough to meet a real hero - Karl Hinett

Karl Hinett & Dave Sherwood Karl Hinett & Dave Sherwood

Karl Hinett - Hero. Army private and burns survivor after his Warrior tank was petrol bombed during 2005 in Basra, Iraq.  A number of Warrior tanks approached and encircled the jail in order to secure the release of the soldiers, however an aggressive mob of local people rapidly grew and started to throw stones then petrol bombs.

Karl recalled, “A riot had broken out and we were the first tank on the scene. A mob quickly formed around our Warrior. What hit me first was a really strong smell of petrol. I never saw it coming at all. Then it engulfed my body as I was drenched in petrol”.

Karl wrestled his way out of the tank and then passed out from the extreme pain of sustaining 37% burns to his hands, legs, arms and face. Karl underwent five years of skin grafts and operations at Selly Oak Hospital to heal his injuries.

Remembering John Weller (Paul Weller's father)

John Weller (Manager of Paul Weller and The Jam) sadly died on this day in 2009.

GenMem's Dave Sherwood has fond memories of John Weller. . .

 

Paul Weller has been my music hero/god since secondary school days in Guildford, Surrey (close to Paul's home town of Woking). I've been lucky to have met Paul on dozens of occasions over the years, but I will never forget the very first time (Tokyo 1993) and the brilliant introduction John gave me. John having established I was a huge fan of Paul's and that I was a 'Guildford boy' took me backstage to meet my hero (who obviously needed no introduction to me) and said to Paul and then me. . .

Heavy metal magazine Hit Parader named Plant the "Greatest Metal Vocalist of All-Time". He was also voted "the greatest voice in rock" in a poll conducted by Planet Rock and a Rolling Stone readers' pick placed Plant in first place of the magazine's "Best Lead Singers of All Time".
