American Movie Icons

I remember first hearing Elvis Presley's songs during my childhood days (the 1960s) on Children's Favourites on a Saturday morning, which was broadcast on the Light programme, now BBC Radio 2. Songs were played by Children's request. I have watched Elvis' films/movies too. I became aware of John Wayne films/movies through my Father, who was a 'Duke' fan and whose favourite film was 'She Wore a Yellow Ribbon' Surely two of America's greatest Icons.

British Comedians

I love the universal humour, emotion and innocence of the Norman Wisdom films made in the 1950s and 1960s. He was part of my childhood along with stand up comedian Ken Dodd, who certainly has a unique style of humour. Surely two of the funniest British comedians ever. Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist)

Cliff Richard And The Shadows (Pop)

The Summer Holiday film was the first time I noticed Cliff Richard and realised how good a singer he was. The Shadows single 'Apache' certainly made an impression on me in the 1960s with its distinctive guitar sound. Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist)

Doctor Who (An Adventure In Space And Time)

I have been an avid watcher of the TV programme Doctor Who (an adventure in space and time) from its opening episode first shown in November 1963. I also enjoyed watching the two Dalek films, first shown at cinema's in 1965 and 1966 around the UK. I have felt inspired to create many Doctor Who related images over the years in oil paints, after watching the Doctor's adventures and this page is my tribute to the great legendary TV programme.

Doctor Who (The Myth Making Four)

This is my tribute to the beginning of a TV Legend, namely Doctor Who. Four great actors, whose abilities made sure the Science Fiction programme would run and run. Indeed the adventure stories made then are as engaging now as when they were first broadcast in 1963. William Hartnell as the Doctor, Carol Ann Ford as Susan Foreman (Doctor's Granddaughter), Jacqueline Hill as Barbara Wright and William Russell (Russell Enoch) as Ian Chesterton.

Michael Jackson (King Of Pop)

I first heard Earthsong on Top of The Pops one Thursday evening on the BBCTV. One of my most favourite songs ever. Very moving and powerfully executed by Michael. I started to explore and enjoy more of his music as time went by. Surely he was the King Of Pop. Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist)

Sporting Stars

I have always enjoyed watching and playing sport, especially Cricket and Tennis. Andy Murray is one of my tennis heroes. An amazing player. I have fond memories of watching Ann Haydon Jones winning Wimbledon in 1969 on the BBCTV with Dan Maskell commentary

The Beatles (pop)

When I think of pop music, I always think of the Beatles from my childhood in the 1960s. 'She Loves You' was my first single 45rpm and it had endless playings on my Father's Hifi in the mid 1960s. Their songs were very good catchy tunes and seemed to be ubiquitous at the time and still are. Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist)

The Moody Blues (symphonic rock)

After listening to the album Question of Balance in the early 1970s, I became absorbed with their timeless, melodic, uplifting, Symphonic Rock Music and their lyrics of Peace, Love and Harmony. After listening to more of their current albums at the time I became more aware of the Mellotron sound and how atmospheric and futuristic it sounded. It sounded magical along with the haunting flute playing. Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist) "You are the only Artist to regularly paint Mellotrons and we applaude that!" Martin Smith (Streetly Electronics), All Things Mellotronic 2006. "Kevin Parrish's Moody Blues Art captures, in my opinion, many aspects of the musical journey of the band. Kevin has a unique way of visually creating the "minds eye concepts" of the songs, the messages and the musicians." Mike Pinder (Moody Blues Mellotron Keyboard) 2006 http://www.mwe3.com/archive/pastfeature/featureKevinParrish2009.htm http://www.brumbeat.net/bblinks.htm Enter the "inner sanctum" below

Yes (Prog Rock)

After listening to the album Close To The Edge in the early 1970s, I was absorbed by their complex, challenging to listen to music and became a Yes fan and always looked forward to their next album being released. A wonderful musical experience certainly, with voices and cosmic lyrics used as instruments adding to their unique progressive sound. I have always considered their music compositions to be like a piece of artwork, likening it to visual Artist compositions which I undertake. Kevin Alun Parrish (Fine Artist)
