Tonbridge talent continued....

I dream in emails, worn out phrases
Mile after mile of just empty pages....

Not my words but those of Keane, those other talented boys from Tonbridge, from the title track of their new album "Perfect Symmetry." Maybe there's something in the water around here, we seem to be surrounded by such talent....

You seem to like Keane for some reason. Attending the fee-paying Tonbridge School is a rather tenuous link with the town. Most of the original members of Genesis attended Charterhouse school; does that mean Godalming is also a mine of talent??

I must say that I tend to agree with Paul Bailey in that attending Tonbridge School doesn't really mean that they are from Tonbridge does it ?

I believe they come from somewhere like Brenchley or Goudhurst. One of the wives was at WKC recently but not sure if they actually live in Tonbridge.

Some do come from Hildenborough as I used to babysit them. However, many actually live elsewhere, like in a foreign country.
