Andy Hamilton Remembered

Andy HamiltonIt’s really good to know that Andy’s influence and contribution to improving the lives of many young people over the years through music, including mine, is still remembered.  Paradise Circus in Birmingham City Centre is undergoing a multi million pound redevelopment and a campaign spearheaded by Councillor Osborn is garnering support for having a statue of  Andy in the Centre.  Brilliant news!   Many of us who were under his tutelage have continued and developed in music.  If this project goes through then Andy will be remembered by the City and its visitors for decades to come – great news!
