Suwon, South Korea
There are probably two moments in my life which I regard as life defining. Of all the moments which made a difference, the two most important really changed who I was and where I was going in my life. If I could be astute I could claim that they gave me a greater sense of purpose, allowing me to understand who I am more. One of these moments was coming to Korea. The other was the first time I heard The Stone Roses play.
This week I have had what single thread was holding me to Korea yanked free with the announcement that The Stone Roses will reform and play a number of gigs. There is probably little chance that I could get a ticket for any of the gigs, even if I was in Ireland, but that’s beside the point as I can’t even try because I am in Korea.
