Graham Greer Isn’t My Kind Of Man – Musical Mayhem in the River City by Jamie Gilcig

I love that image that an area photog did of moi.  He meant it badly, mostly because he’s kinda young and probably never understood or watched Citizen Kane.     He’s an example of a young person in Cornwall, with some talent, who sold his soul to get the love from a ever shrinking clique. […]
