I consider Captain Kelly a good friend and in the 10 years I have known him I have learnt much from him. We first met on a beach in St Vincent (where I was teaching). His boat required some repairs and I spent a lot of time visiting him in the boat yard over the ensuing few months. Together we arranged visits for several of my school classes to his amerindian floating museum. It was a very enlightening and memorable experience for all my pupils. We have spent time together on many occassions since (often with our wives) he continues to be a source of inspiration and I consider it a priviledge to share his experiences.

We met in 1969. He has always been engaged in the earths well being and has invested his life wholeheartedly. Long before it was popular he was engaging with the Indians to make their plight known to the world. A truly remarkable man...His story should be told, his message should be heard, love mother earthanulka, white flame Mon 10 May 2010 18:52:54 GMT+1 videonation http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/videonation/features/my_story/amazon/?page=75#comment9 ROD ROBERTS, CLEVELEYS 2010-02-26 first met clive ar his rythm @blues centre CUBIKLUB THE NIGHT THE ROLLING STONES FAILED TO DO THE PAID FOR SHOW, ONLY MICK JAGGER @BRIAN JONES ARRIVED, IT IS ALL IN DETAIL IN BILL WYMANS BOOK A STONE ALONE I ALSO SAW JOHN LEE HOOKER, SCREAMING JAY HAWKINS, BO DIDDLY, ROD STEWART, LITTLE RICHARD, TINA TURNER, DONOVAN, ELTON JOHN, THE PLATTERS, LONG JOHN BALDRY, ALEXIS KORNERS,THE BIG THREE, ERIK CLAPTON,MILLIE, LITTLE EVA, ETC ETC CLIVE STARTED THE RYTHYM N BLUES APPRECIATION SOCIETY APPRECIATION SOCIETY IN UK,HE NOW TELLS ME HE IS WANTING A GHOST WRITER FOR HIS BOOKI KELLYSEYE.

While Clive was doing his thing with the clubs I was bashing it out with a rock and roll band. ( The Mustangs ). As we got older and we went our different paths I still heard about clive through family members,also I received letters and information directly from Captain Clive As he was was becoming known. The stories I listened to about his times in Brasil and the efforts he has made to save the distruction of the areas and seas in and around that country have been very interesting. The efforts he made to teach people about the dangers of damaging the balance of our planet and how he went about this in floating home and museum, made great stories.

Tony Williams, Blackpool 2010-01-24 I have known Clive Kelly for more than 40 years, he introduced me to Eric Clapton who taught me to bend a guitar string when I was just 17. Clive recognised the dangers of Global Warming more than two decades ago and he was an ambassador and pioneer campaigning to protect the world from ourselves. He has devoted his adult life to not only the protection and plight of the South American Indians but to the ecological devestation caused by man's ignorance and greed. There is no one more qualified or rightful to talk, demonstrate and educate the modern world on issues that are essential to the future survival of this planet or on the history, way of life and culture of one of the most fascinating and gifted tribes of people in the Universe.
