Reflections of a former muso

It’s almost 30 years since I retired from commercial piano playing, and thinking about that today made me feel positively creaky. Strangely, even after all that time, I still see myself as a muso. 

I first retired from playing back in 1975, when I broke up my last band, Aardvark.

That lasted for about three years, then we moved to residencies in the Abel Tasman and Waterloo hotels.
