I Prefer Swiss Rolls Really

On the 6th of February 1966 a star was born.

Newton-le-Willows is a part of Merseyside now but on that cold February in 1966, it was still considered a part of Lancashire. Although he recently referred to his biggest hit as “naff”, the song released in 1987 is still popular today and in fact, SurveyUSA estimated that some 18 million American adults had seen his video on youTube.

He was born on February 6, 1966 in the North of England and was brought up in a small coal-mining town called Newton-Le-Willows. He was the youngest of 4 children and followed in his mother’s footsteps with his fondness of music. Rick sang in a local church choir but his love for the drums inevitably found him in local bands by his early teenage years.

Have you figured out who yet?

Yes, I admit that I’m easily amused. You knew that already, didn’t you?

On the 6th of February, 2010, I thoroughly enjoyed myself looking through all your photographs. This week’s set is full of fun:

Say hello to these fine people who are never gonna let you down:

And hey you, yes you! Take a photograph on Saturday!

(To be included, just send an @reply to SatScenes with a link to the photo and the location. We’d love to see your corner of the world!)
