Sitting on my own, not by myself,
Everybody’s here with me

Cat Stevens – “Sitting”

Born Steven Demetre Georgiou in 1948. He grew up mostly in England in London. He had a very difficult time in school and came down with tuberculosis when he was 21. He had released two albums already: Matthew and Son (1967)  had done very well and New Masters (also 1967) had not.
