There’s little doubt you’ve heard of the Fab Four — John, Paul, George and Ringo — those Liverpool lads who revolutionized the music scene throughout the 1960s. Well, for me, there were four other British lads, all a bit older, Ernie, Fred, Norman and George, who were my personal fab four from Leicester.

They were my uncles — my mother’s four brothers and they each influenced my life as much as anyone. While I never once heard them sing together like the celebrated Beatles, they still made a kind of music when it came to living their lives.
