I knows me men

You know, I don't think I had seen a real Asian person until my teens, and even then rarely. I suppose there may have been some in the local Chinese take away food shop, but I can't remember them and I don't know that we ate Chinese food at all, except for my mother's execrable chow mein.

So naturally the first Asian that the teenage me lusted for was quite western really and boy did I pick a good one. Not only did he turn out to be smart and successful, he still looks pretty good. Les Gock is on the right at the end. I quite liked Keith Lamb too, second from the left, but he didn't achieve or last quite as well as Les.

  1. Hello Andrew:
    We had to Google Les Gock to even have the faintest clue about whom you were writing. Sadly, we are still none the wiser except that he does seem to have worn well!!

  3. I, too, had to Google. Perhaps the Antipodean variety was able to throw up a better explanation. I remember the band, Hush, as something on the periphery of my consciousness when it was going. It seems that Les Gock has moved on to better times, or at least as successful times now.

  4. You always make me laugh Andrew, looking at my comments just now I chuckled imagining you going 'oh damn!' and again haha! I have to agree with you Mr. Gock is gorgeous, even more so now than in his youth which is not something that many people can say.

  5. JayLa, I don't think he is world famous but I think he is now a music producer.

    I reckon so Victor. We are so lucky to keep our good looks like he has.

    Christine, the time of glam rock. It was fun seeing all these men outrageously dressed.

    Grace, yes there are very few of us who retain their looks into middle age. I haven't been back to check if I have left a thousand comments on your post. I'll do it now.

  6. Lordy, that was a blast from the past, and, yes, he's worn very well :)

    Just be glad your Chinese take away wasn't next door to the vet's, like it is in Castlemaine....!

  7. He is very attractive. I wonder if he is eurasian as he has very western features.

  8. He is very (very) nice looking, but I don't remember the band at all. Can you name a couple of the songs they did? Maybe that will help.

  9. Jayne, Jayne, Jayne. We just so won't go there.

    Possibly AdRad. He looked more Asian when he was younger. I think he was Australian born.

    River, I've got a girl called Bony Maronie. Glad All Over. I'm sure there were more.

  10. He was cute to start with but like Grange he just gets better with age, doesn't he?

    ....and what of the (not) hot ginge on the left..!??

  11. Kath, and probably richer with age too. I shan't be unkind to the ginge. Perhaps he has matured well.

  13. River, probably best left as a memory.
