Being a Teddyboy from the 70s, its been a big part of my life - some of my favorite memories go back to that time when I lived in a little town in Kent. We got into trouble with the punks, but that's how it was back then. There was only about ten of us but we had some laughs. We used to go to the Star Cafe in Tonbridge, that was our place, we even paid for the Rock`n`Roll records for the jukebox. From what I know there are no Teds in Tonbridge anymore, which is a shame shame, but we left our mark. Here`s to the good old days - LONG LIVE THE TEDS,AND LONG LIVE ROCK`N`ROLL.

Being a teddy boy set me apart from all of the blindly led fashion followers in the 70s, 80s, 90s and now the naughties. The music I instantly loved - long live rock 'n' roll!
