The Annual Free Convention 2016

Had a great night out at Tynemouth Park Hotel last night, where the Annual Free convention was  held.  On the 40th anniversary of Paul Kossoff’s death, they had Terry Slesser from Backstreet Crawler as well as a Free & Backstreet Crawler tribute band from Japan, with Hideyuki Hide Kinoshita on guitar. They were excellent. Brill night and fun to be out with our pals Mick & Katie.

Didn’t get chance to take any photo’s on Monday or Tuesday, but Wednesday I was able to have a quick lunch break at Woodhorn, and got to see the swans I was going to get out and take some shots, but this one decided to have a lie down by my car door, and I didn’t want to upset him!   Thursday was one of those days off I have that I end up working, but when I got home Phil and I went to our fave…
