Happy Birthday to THE very original Mod and Flame keeper, John Hellier.

John with Andy Fairweather Low, yes, the guy and guitar slinger who had a success band in the sixties, Amen Corner ( Mod, Psychedelic pop, swirling hammond organd, heavy horns and...million hit sellers!), who played with Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, Stevie Winwood, Ronnie Lane... and much more...

We all know his incredible knowledge of the Mod's era, his "DNA passion" for the Small Faces and I have to say that I DO admire him for his ability to stay "under" the music he serves like a MODern Knight! Believe me or ask Small Faces wonderful people, he's The Original Mod all around the place, and most of all, A perfect friend and an absolute 'toff (he learnt me the word as many other things...)

Happy Birthday, Mad John. Please, just stay yourself :)
