Those were the days!

Something completely different for election day, but it gets my vote: "My Generation: the glory years of British rock", a new book featuring the photographs of the BBC's Top of the Pops photographer Harry Goodwin. He's the subject of a display at the Victoria and Albert Museum(V&A) until the end of October. It certainly took me down memory lane - as a wee girl my 2 older sisters plastered our bedroom wall with pictures of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Titch, The Kinks, and of course, the Beatles (I loved Paul best). We never missed TOTP in our house, and I grew up with it, building up my own record collection (devoting myself to Marc Bolan & T-Rex, Alice Cooper and David Bowie). Ah, the heady days of glam rock!
