 A message from James:

'Wow, 70 years on Planet Earth, 54 years committed to Rock & Roll.  I bought my first drum kit when I was 16 years old.

I'm really happy to Present in my 70th year, my first Solo Album - Born to Rock.  I think Rock was always what I was meant to do.  As many of you know it's not the easiest path, but I've had a blast and that will be my way till the very last.  As you know I'm heading towards the end of the show but hey I've made my music for me and all of you, I really hope and almost know you will all continue to enjoy and love Rock & Roll as much as I have.

The support my friends, R&R Family and the Industry have shown during this chapter of my life and career in the Australian Alternative Music Industry is truly incredible.  I will never have enough words to thank you all.

Especially, John at Buttercup Records Australia for the generosity and brilliantly creative idea to put the image designed for my Birthday gig on this limited-edition T-shirt 70 for 70.  This project is to help in the fund-raising efforts to make the things of life roll with a little ease, in spite of the disease.

Have fun, be colourful. Big prop's and thank-you all for keeping the 'Teenage Dreamer' inside of me playful, smiling and happy.  

- James and Cathy Baker

These T-Shirts will be available to buy from the Buttercup Records Website on March 7th from 9am.
