13 - I dream, therefore I slash  
Had a weird dream right before waking this morning. I can't remember much of it, other than waking up and thinking "wow, who knew?!" In my dream, these two guys - guys that I haven't thought about in years, guys who were in a band together, which broke up in the early eighties and one of whom died over 15 years ago - were a couple. I had no reason to ever think they were an item IRL; Greg had girlfriends and Graeme was married twice. Funny thing, the sleeping brain.

Extra funny- when I went looking for a photo to post here, I found these:

See the tall guy in white? That's Greg. The guy leaning on his shoulder? That's Graeme, nicknamed Shirley due to his curls. I found so many photos featuring just these two.

Like that.

And that. So, 35-odd years after they split, my brain finally picked up on the subtext.
Never said I was the quickest *g*.

It's amazing what the mind gets up to in our dreams. Then to find those photos...

I vaguely remember Skyhooks music, but do remember 'Shirley' as he was on one of the midday shows, maybe Ray Martin.

I loved this band so much, my bedroom walls were covered with posters of them when I was in my teens. Even on my ceiling! So sad when Shirl died, it was like a little bit of my childhood disappearing.
