Welcome – A Pop Life

Hello and welcome to my blog!

 

Here I will regularly share stories about music and in particular music that has meant (or still does mean) a great deal to me. These can entail stories, memories, reviews, descriptions, etc. The only condition I have set for myself is that I own the music which I write about.

 

The primary categories for my stories are  Posts and  Reviews. On my primary blog (the Dutch version) I added all the concerts I have seen (as far as I know the exact date) as  Concerten. These pages are in Dutch. I also added all my (yearly/decade) lists as Lijsten.

 

If you like some posts/reviews, I would very much like it for you to let me know. At the bottom of every post/review you can leave comments. Comments placed on the Facebook-page will be incorporated on this blog.

 

Through  Contact I’d love to hear about (shared) memories. Maybe it leads to another story.
