Queen Elizabeth Turns 90 – What’s To Celebrate?

Queen Elizabeth turns 90-years-old today. The Queen has been on the throne of the United Kingdom since 1952, almost three-quarters of her life. Queen Elizabeth became Queen aged just 26, and many are celebrating what they see as a life of dedicated service to her country. Queen Elizabeth is a record breaker, the oldest and longest serving monarch in the U.K.’s history. The Mirror reports today that more often than not, the Queen has adopted just the right tone during times of difficulty, earning her popularity and entitling her to bask in the celebrations of today’s landmark birthday.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
