Following on from all the excitement of April Fools’ Day (sorry If I got all your hopes up 😉), I wanted to drag things back to some sort of normality - if Suss's fiendish Easter competition will let us!!!?
We had an on-line get-together before Christmas and MajorPaul mentioned Albert Camus - someone he was studying as part of his degree. Now, I’ve never heard of Camus and maybe Paul will post to tell us all about him??? The mention of someone I've never heard of, got me thinking about all those Boomtown Rats songs that refer to actual characters from history. In many cases, I’m not really sure who these people are that we’ve got so used to singling about.
So, every now and then I thought we’d explore real characters from history - people that either get a name-check in a Boomtown Rats song or people that really inspire us but maybe most of us have never heard of.... and I’m gonna kick off with Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
