Holy Cow! :ylsuper: Mr Dolan How the Hell Are you? I was on FR and stumbled upon the url. You sound Amazing, the songs are fantastic and you look well. You've no idea all the stuff that's flooding back just listening to you. Your enthusiasm, boundless energy,optimism and humor got us thru some c*** days at Padgate High, You were always one of the good ones man! I'll never forget wandering the streets in summer, You me and Paul Brown, Brownie with that unplugged SG knockoff and tartan Cap belting out ACDC tunes, pure magic! (where is he now?) I met him ages ago in w/ton i was on vacation, he'd just got back from NY.NY and had played a gig at CBGB's that was the last i heard. Amazing to see Notrog and Ange Byrne said Hi also, I played in a Band with Steve for quite a while, gigged all over the place, they were good times too. Yeah and the camping out and scrumping, awesome! A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, and its great to see your living your dream, All the Best Si. Andy Mol.

Been to St. Ives every year for the past 7 years and you're the best busker on the street. In fact you're more than a busker. The other guys just give off the impression that they just do it for beer money (though the harp player is an eccentric little individual). Always get a lift when I see you playing and now my wife and kids come with me and we all appreciate you. Peace out.

How did I ever forget about Orangeade? Hi Simon, I think everyone's got a bit confused and think this is the Friends Reunited site! Can't believe how many times I've been to St Ives and not realised that you are the one and only Simon Dolan!

Orangeade! Yes! I remember them! Simon wore some wonderfully tight trousers in those days! If I am not mistaken, Mr. Simon Dolan also sang a cracking rendition of "Beauty School Dropout" in the Studio, Padgate in the mid '80s Padgate High production of "Grease". Am I right or am I right?

Forgive me if my recollection is a little hazy, but did u ever spray your face orange and jump out of a window?

Admin reply: yes I did and I would not reccomend it as it was a nightmare to get off and orange does not go with anything!!

hello simon

for some reason i'm thinking of tea stained amps in berkeley's back room

Admin reply: Tea-stained sounds so twee! That sounds like a "Strange Attractors" rehersal the last band I was in. Crouch End was a great place to be based, such an amazing variety of influances both musical and chemical!

Didn't you used to be the lead singer in Orangeade?

Admin reply: My God, Orangeade, That is a word or world I have not thought about in many a long year. Yes it was me I admit it I wanted to be Freddie Mercury and there is no shame in that, just lots of toe curling memories. Things are alot more chilled now living in paradise, playing my music (a long way from Warrington) I also seem to remember us all camping out on the golf course in Cinnamon Brow and going scrumping at midnight! Lost innocence,glorious days!

Hey Simon,
Im the long curly blonde haired 15 year old, that walks past you every Friday and gives you money.

I think you are amazing and i love your confidence and admire your music. I am a musician myself and would love to be good enough to play on the street as i think i have the confidence to.

Do you need a licence to busk?

and do you have myspace?? if you do please mail me your URL.

Conor
