Steve Jones' The Rise and Fall of David Bowie 1/2619 viewsCherry Vanilla by the way was someone Bowie fell for; Quicksand, Cracked Actor', Andy Warhol, Kooks and All Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed are some of Bowie's great songs (for the uninitiated). If anyone knows of Steve or where he is I would dearly like to make contact! fifla1973Dec 30, 2014

Steve Jones' The Rise and Fall of David Bowie480 viewsI introduced Steve to Bowie in 1972 and recorded the first five albums onto cassette for him. I also helped him write out the lyrics for his own use to go with the recordings. He used his art and great sense of imagination to make three comic strips for me. This is page 1 of 2 of the first of those three strips. 70s pop art as never been seen before! fifla1973Dec 30, 2014

A genuine 1970s letter from the great Steve Jones 2527 viewsSteve was a brilliant artist who painted the scenes on the walls of the new Luqa Youth Club at Safi in 1973. This is the second part of his letter sent while I was living miserably in the North East having left Malta in early 1974.fifla1973Dec 29, 2014

A genuine 1970s letter from the great Steve Jones498 viewsThis is a letter from a great like minded friend; Steve Jones to me while I was suffering the misery of North East England in 1974. He was a great artist; he painted drew and sculptured and I wrote Ginsberg like poetry; a great team! I guess he was right when he wrote on the side of page one: Don't get me wrong we're only dancing! Perhaps it should now read: we were only dancing! Page 2 to follow!fifla1973Dec 29, 2014

Luqa 2 Site Gladiator Club etc592 viewsThis shows the Gladiator Club to the right, a stage in the mid foreground and across the sports field and running track the old quarters. You can clearly make out that the flats ( we lived ground floor on the right) which were twice the length in the old days with the demolished part to the right making way for the airport. I took this picture on 9th October this year and later that day the great Maddy Prior sang on the little stage in this picture. I used to sit in my bedroom in the 70s not 60 yards away listening to her records; if someone had told me then that in 40 years she would be singing in earshot of my bedroom I wouldn't have believed them!fifla1973Dec 28, 2014

Luqa 2 Site running track539 viewsThe cars are parked on the old sports field. The flats in the background where I lived were a block longer to the right in my day. The block on the right going away from camera where Dave Phillips lived was demolished to make way for the airport. Tal Handaq sports day 1973 was held here.fifla1973Nov 19, 2014
