Landed on our feet when we discovered new beach bar bistro ‘Forty Fives’ in Playa D’en Bossa, Ibiza. Run by London DJ James and his wife Melanie, this place was a regular hotspot for our crew to refuel at lunch hour or grab some much-needed retreat from the sunshine. A great spot for a midday beer, wine, tasty lunch or just relax with a cool water and watch the world pass by. Occasionally, James could be heard spinning the discs of Bob Marley, Soul II Soul or some vintage acid jazz 45’s. With attentive and cheerful staff, a world-class chef, a great vegetarian Sunday roast and personnel service, you would be cheating yourself not to stop by Forty Fives if you are heading to Ibiza. Here is a few shots taken on our recent trip. Thank you to James, Mel & Co. See you soon..
This Fender Strat is autographed by Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones. Shot in the window of an art gallery in London on my iphone. Its priced around 2 grand if I remember correctly. Not sure I would call it art though. As well as a guitarist, Ronnie is a spectacular painter specialising in portraits and Horses. If you have an interest in art you should check out his work online.
I once met him in Dublin as he was out shopping with his then wife Jo, as a fan it was a great experience. He is so down to earth, not what you might expect.
