Pulse Nightclub Orlando: Can Music Help To Ensure Love Overcomes Hate?

Just one week ago most of the world had not heard of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Just one week later Omar Mateen has ensured that Pulse nightclub has become infamous as the scene of the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil since 11 September 2001. Since Mateen murdered 49 people and wounded 53 others Pulse nightclub and the city of Orlando have become synonymous with mass murder born of hatred. Those killed and injured in the Pulse nightclub were seemingly targeted purely on the basis of their sexuality and over the past week questions have been raised as to whether Mateen was himself a repressed homosexual.

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.
