"Get Beethoven!"

Welcome to the "GB!" page. 

It was a form of therapy. All this stuff was going round and round in my head for 50yrs and I needed to get it out. I wanted to vent my anger at school, the Church

and the injustices of life in NI.

I also wanted to maybe inspire young people and show them that, if you’re prepared to devote yourself to your dreams,

you can realise them.

Here you will find a pictorial feast to accompany the lean words and a small helping of musical garnish.
