Hello, my name is Rob Keene I'm 63 years old and Ive had Parkinson's since I was fifteen years old which is probably most of my natural born life. I'm retired but I've had a passion for music for as long as I can remember. I have always had musicality in my life.I'm a keen record collector I've been a music librarian, Ive played in numerous rock bands over the years, Ive been a radio presenter in fact its probably in my bloodstream. I can't express how important that is to me. It has been with me through the good times in my life. It has been through the bad times. It has been with me my whole life. It has defined me. I can think of no other form of self-expression than music. You could write a song about absolutely anything. There is no single emotion that you couldn't express in the form of music. And I am thinking in particular of record collecting. I could give you a soundtrack to my life through the records I have bought at any particular point in my life. Because the music you listen to through your life expresses an emotion, a memory. Something that happened at that point in your life when you first heard that particular record. And that's why when you listen to music it should evoke something in you. An emotion. It can define a mood you are in. it can define anything you want it to but it must mean something because that's what it does for me. I have memories attached to certain records even to the memories of actually buying those particular records and where I bought them from. It could be a record say from the 1970s when I was a teenager which reminds me of a girl I wanted to go out with but failed miserably but it doesn't stop you dreaming and that's what a certain record should do. And it's even more vital to me now than ever because music has got me through really bad days when my failing body won't allow me to do anything but listen to something. And that's where my music has saved me. It's been, my only friend. It's got me through everything because when I listen to it I can just lose myself and I am so grateful to it for that.
