Maybe you’ve seen them on Facebook?
Oh, you must!
Here’s the clip that got me hooked:
See what I mean? It’s simply wonderful.
(https://www.facebook.com/songaminute/ You’re welcome)
And part of what makes it so wonderful is how difficult it all is.
You see, that distinguised man in the passenger seat with the golden vocal chords comes alive when the music comes on. And it’s magical. When the music goes away, though, so does his memory. And that’s the hard part. The very, very hard part.
Simon’s dad, Ted, lives with, and suffers from Alzheimers Disease.
Listen in as Simon gives a glimpse of life behind the scenes with his dad, the Songaminute Man. It’s beautiful. And it’s hard. And it’s honest.
Oh, and of course, Simon answers some other VERY important questions, like the difference between scones and crumpets, for starters (cause, you know, they’re British).
And… proceeds from the book, as well as his dad’s music (recorded at ABBY ROAD studios!) are going to raise awareness for Alzheimers… just so you know.
If you’re in the UK, you can get Simon’s book on Amazon NOW (or pre-order for Sept. release in the states) here: https://www.amazon.com/Songaminute-Man-Tribute-Unbreakable-Between/dp/0778313743/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522768095&sr=8-1&keywords=the+songaminute+man
