Don’t Dream It’s Over (Epilogue Of The Rise And Fall Of An Unsigned Band Pt – 15)

The last time I saw Ryan, he still had cool hair.

It was last week.

The last time I saw Craig and Danny, they were wearing sharp suits.

It was yesterday.

There were many cast members in the story of The Shores, and many other stories I have forgotten (deliberately and otherwise).

This has been a personal account of The Shores. If you are reading; Craig, Ryan, Danny – any inaccuracies or omissions are unintentional.

I’ve enjoyed writing this little blog. The last couple of bits have been genuinely emotional.

If you ever get to the chance to live a dream with your best mates, do it.

The Shores Are Dead, Long Live The Shores.

  1. Loved the blog wee man. Brilliantly written and brought back a lot of memories. For the record, I always liked the name Nevertheless. Plenty of your own songs I loved an all, but one of my favourite numbers was when you did Imagine then launched straight into Don’t Look Back in Anger. If I ever go on X Factor that’s my audition song. Yaaassss.
