It's a Nice Day to Start Again

My friend Holly Taymar is not only a fabulous musician (solo and as one half of the Bronze), but also - her actual day job - a tireless fundraiser for Mind. During this current incarceration Holly has been presenting her unique Lockdown Jukebox (read all about it here): for a modest donation to a vital and respected mental health charity, Holly will sing you a song - any song - and post it on her Youtube channel along with all the other jukebox selections which have ben pouring in over the last couple of weeks or so.

I asked her if she'd curl her top lip and 'have a go at Billy Idol...'

  1. That's cool, John. Tip of the cap to Holly.

  2. That's such a great version. Such a worthy cause, especially during these uncertain times.

    1. I met Holly when we moved to North Yorkshire. She does her Sponsored Jukebox over Christmas, normally, to boost the coffers at Mind. This enforced Lockdown obviously seemed a good time to revive it. I think she's already exceeded her target, bless her.
