I’m gonna go out dancin’ every night, I’m gonna see all the city lights, I’ll do everything silver and gold. I got to hurry up before I grow too old. I’m gonna take a trip around the world. I’m gonna kiss all the pretty girls. I’ll do everything silver and gold. And I got to hurry up before I grow too old.
We couldn’t let this pass without a mention for what would have been Joe Strummers 70th birthday in August. Silver and Gold is one of his later songs, a touching song about the passage of time and a poignant passionate reminder of our own fragile mortality.
Welcome to the September Edition of East Leeds Magazine. In this edition James Adams tells us all about his latest book ‘Passionate’ where he describes and analyses a life of passion, strong attachments, frequent crises and various experiences of therapy.
He also supplied the photo for the cover, taken at Skelton Lake. Many thanks James.
