CELEBRATING 5O YEARS OF HINE-SIGHT
On 5th December 1965, the UK No.1 song was "I Feel Fine" by the Beatles, in the USA it was "Turn, Turn, Turn" by the the Byrds and Rupert Hine - as one half of Rupert & David (MacIver) - was recording his first single, Paul Simon’s “Sound of Silence”. The rest, as they say, is history.
On 5th December 2015 an impressive array of musical talent, music associates, friends and family gathered at Metropolis Studios, London, to celebrate Rupert’s 50th year in the music business; a journey of many accomplishments setting him apart from so many others in the crazy and unpredictable world that is the business of music; a continuance to discover, support, encourage and develop others, something that speaks volumes about his character and genuine love of creativity. An inspiring individual, still inspiring, still encouraging:
You Sir, Are A Ruddy Legend!
