In Memory Of
SADLY TAKEN FROM US TOO SOON
As I sit alone, one soul in an empty room. Trying to gather my thoughts to enable me to pay tribute to my good friend Kelvin.
The foundation of a meeting which later formatted into a close friendship of 25 years.
It started with a shared love of music and the year was 1995. I can’t express the joyful amount of times we both engaged in lengthy conversations about music and musicians we loved and admired. This in it self was what lead to us forming this music label AOR BLVD Records in 2010.
Kelv was a flamboyant character on the outside, but inside and exposed to only a few true friends, he was a gentle, caring family man. He also had a big passion for animals and anyone who knew him would know that his dog was also such an important part of his life too.
I end this by saying, I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to call you ‘my friend’ who I loved and respected.
I miss you from the heart. RIP

our legendary music journalist, Co-Partner at AORBlvdRecords and our best friend Kelv,
was a key element in the early success of Poison here in the UK and was still promoting music here up until the day he passed away......
Kelv you will be so very sorely missed, you were a daily constant in all our lives here at AORBlvdRecords, your untimely passing has shocked us all to the core, you will never be forgotten,
