About Stuart Wood

Stuart Wood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts.

I share subjects that are important to me.

As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge.

I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed.

Although many people would label me as an achiever,Β I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around.

Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy.

Take care, best wishes & keep well

Stuart

    Hello Stuart,
    I think I may have known your brother. I went to St Wilfrids Church, Leeds and met Graham William Wood who was a Leeds university student. We formed a guitar group with Graham as a brilliant lead guitarist who also was a brilliant pianist. He was highly respected by his colleagues as well as us in the group. We lost contact and the two of us who remain from the group have searched without success on line for him. His nickname was Nazzard. I have some photographs and would share them if the above details sound familiar to you. The Graham we knew had a brother and a sister and came from Derby. I am saddened to learn of your loss and if the Graham we knew was your brother I am saddened that we didnt find him. I remember he had a student friend called Nigel who went to live in Australia.
    I look forward to hearing from you. Paul Thompson

    Hi Paul

    Thank you so much for getting in touch.

    My brother was indeed from Derby & studied biochemistry at Leeds in the 1960s, continuing on to research in the same faculty. He was a guitarist & keyboard player (I think he bought the only Jennings Organ ever made πŸ™‚ ). He was also pretty zany at times, well most of the time actually πŸ™‚

    He moved to London in the early 1970s where he met & married Inge & then moved on to Germany in the mid-1970s, living there until he died.

    He used to to play a homemade red guitar and a Vox maroon & pearl electric which looked very much like Paul McCartney’s bass. He used to say it was Shane Fenton’s old guitar, but he had a wicked sense of humour so I never knew whether to believe him.

    Graham had two sisters & myself (his younger brother).

    I believe the friend was Nigel Burkett/Burkitt?

    Hope this is enough information to convince us we are talking about the same person.

    Take care & look forward to hearing from you. My e-mail address is dr.stu@ntlworld.com
