CELEBRATE IN STYLE

You may remember a few weeks ago I was asking about Russell’s favourite bands, and a few months ago I wrote a blog about his favourite T-shirts. Well the time has come to put the two together to celebrate Russell’s 30th birthday.

We have decided that this year we will wear a T-shirt featuring one of Russell’s favourite bands (there is a list of 30 bands he liked – one for each year – below). As his birthday is on the bank holiday Saturday, we are fairly sure that if he was still with us the celebrations would have lasted all weekend, so you don’t have to do this just on May 2nd, any time over the weekend will do. Maybe you would like to celebrate with a T-shirt on your own birthday instead, Louise? Phoebe?

Happy Holidays

All you have to do is wear the t-shirt, take a photo of yourself (let us know where you are) and post it on the Russellspostcards Facebook page. If you don’t have a “band” T-shirt it doesn’t matter, you can still join in.

Last summer we managed to get the postcards and the drinks for Russell in almost every part of the world. Postcards were left in USA, India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Wales and Spain. Friends shared a drink for Russell as far away as South Africa, Japan and USA.

How far can we get the T-shirts to travel?

Here is the list (in no particular order):

OASIS                                             NIRVANA                            JOY DIVISION

KINGS OF LEON                            ALICE COOPER                  THE VERVE

FLEETWOOD MAC                        JOHNNY CASH                  THE EAGLES

GRATEFUL DEAD                          STONE ROSES                   KASABIAN

FAITHLESS                                     DIRE STRAITS                    IAN BROWN

PEARL JAM                                   JIMI HENDRIX                   PINK FLOYD    

LYNYRD SKYNYRD                        BOB DYLAN

MANIC STREET PREACHERS                            LED ZEPPELIN

ELTON JOHN                                LIBERTINES                       ERIC CLAPTON

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN                                  STEREOPHONICS  

LOU REED                                    GINS’N’ROSES                   BOB MARLEY 

So, start looking out all those t-shirts buried in a drawer somewhere, dust them down and put them on to remember Russell next weekend, and don’t forget to post a picture. How many different bands can we wear?

POSSIBLY HIS FAVOURITE BAND
