  1. I didn't see RR that night, although I once saw Dougie Vipond walking along Princes Street. Good show, and I think that is the first time I have heard Pony Boy on the radio
  2. I couldn't make The Fringe shows, but he thereafter went on tour with the show and I bought tickets for "My Hometown" Kirkcaldy. About a week before the gig, I got a call from the box office to say that show was cancelled due to viability, and they would process a refund. I guess the film has given him another shot at his story. I did see some behind the scenes footage on youtube of his first show at The Fringe and he seemed a decent bloke,
  3. Also think Bonnie was a great fit for Steinman's work, Loving You is a Dirty job, with Todd Rundgren probably the best, but her version of Makin Love Out of Nothing At All, is as bad as Air Supply's 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)
  4. The 1989 Pandora's Box album was great, including the original ( I think) All Comin' Back To Me Now
  5. They were great shows. I thought the segue from Incident into Rosie was sublime, took me back 35 years listening to WIESS on my Walkman. Catch you next time Ronnie
  6. The Rising are playing their annual Edinburgh Fringe gigs at The Jam House, Queen Street on Saturdays 10th and 17th August. Always a great night, and best value at the Fringe
  7. Really enjoyed the film at the Sky screening in Dunfermline last night. Good turnout, although the fact that was a free screening would no doubt boost numbers. I was 16 when BITUSA (my Bruce finding moment) was released so a lot of the timeline experience relates with my own. Won't give spoilers, but I am sure most fans will enjoy I'll Stand By You Always gets its airing over the end credits, so need to stay right to the end to catch it..
  8. I was at the 2011 Glasgow Show at The Royal Concert Hall. Pretty poorly attended with the balcony tickets relocated to the floor. "Support act" was a 80 minute JCM cine film rockumentary, which I found very interesting. Great live show with an excellent band. Would be good to see him back across
  9. I've entered my shows into mybosstime .com and it totals at 20 (+ one pre-show in Belfast 13) It confirms that I have only heard my all time fave, Candy's Room at one show (Dublin 02) - Must have had some bad luck to keep missing Candy. I did see the only ever performance of Rock Ballad (with Elliot Murphy, Paris 92) and one of two performances of In Dreams (Belfast pre-show), and a song called Satan's Jewelled Crown, which I have no memory of, but was apparently played at Milton Keynes 93. Interesting to have the experience catalogued, so thanks to Lakers for highlighting this resource
  10. Demand for probably the last ESB tour will ensure stadiums. A number of the usual stops e.g. Hampden and Wembley, will be out of commission for periods due to UEFA Euro 2020 commitments
  11. Absolutely brilliant. First time I’ve been to a gig at Bannermans, and a great venue. Willie was in top form. In the main it was just him on acoustic guitar and his bass player, but towards the end of the set he had full band made up of local musicians, including girl on electric violin who thought she was just up for one number, but winged it through to the end. Had to run for last train, just as they were starting I Want to be Sedated, which I believe was the final song. A sold out enthusiastic crowd, and hopefully he will be back next time.
  12. Can't see it as it clashes with Willie Nile gig in Edinburgh Trailer looks great
  13. .I am not sure who has his current beau is, but his wife/partner had a baby last year, and I believe is staying in east end of Glasgow if that fills in any gaps. After a sticky spell, seems to have turned the corner with the fans so hopefully onwards and upwards.
