George Bush Blues
Hi, my name is Dennis and being born in England in the City of Derby, chose that as my performance name. Having bought my first guitar aged eleven, and with my eye on Lonnie Donegan and the Skiffle boom, started to learn quickly. Then along came rock and roll from the US of A, and I was hooked for life. I worked for decades with dance bands, small ensemble rock bands, as a solo artist, as part of duos, close harmony groups, etc - forever the man at the front taking the bouquets and brickbats. The many happy unbelievable memories of crazy times remain. Always being on the road, travelling the motorways with the windows down just to stay awake, late after the gigs, sometimes on the coast. After open-heart surgery I decided to audition for a Street Entertainer's Licence and I've been busking on the streets ever since, attracted by the freedom it gave me. I've always given some of my monies raised to children's charities. I hope you enjoy the song I've written and performed on this CD. It's just as it used to be: live, real, uncomplicated and imperfect, but it's happening now. Enjoy listening! It has been very difficult and almost impossible to get publicity for this single CD owing to it's title! Unfortunately, most of the press and media is controlled by the right wing. If you laughed at the words, please tell all of your friends and I would love you to email a few people about it if you can find the time!!! Keep smiling, Dennis Derby p.s. There will be a full CD of my new songs shortly but meanwhile try to catch my latest single CD called: 'Can You Spare Some Change Mate?'
