This is just a short note to let anyone who may be interested know that I have taken a break from working on this blog for the past few months - but I haven't rested on my laurels.

The pictures above are of the late Dave Tarr, a fiddle player and indeed multi-instrumentalist who blazed an impressive trail in South Africa during the 1970s and 1980s. Dave died in 2002.

Since taking a break from Global Rock Legends, I have been working on a new blog, Kin Bentley In Line - - which you may be interested in visiting (see Links, left). It includes a tribute in words and drawings to Dave Tarr, but is in fact an autobiographical project. I have been scanning and posting some of the thousands of sketches and watercolours I have done since the mid-1970s. Since music lovers are often also lovers of the other arts, you might be interested in clicking on the images and experiencing something of an art - drawing - which like so much else that once was treasured, now seems to be considered of little importance.

By the way, the top watecolour, as you probably gathered, is an attempt to make a more formal art work based on the original sketch done at a gig.

Oh and I hope, once this "in line" project is over, to return to the Global Rock Legends blog with a vengeance and tackle those tantalising musos I've thus far neglected.
