  1. Yes, I am mate. Maybe catch you there. They were terrific in Bristol
  2. Seems to be quite a buzz building for this guy? Echoes of Bruce and The Killers perhaps? Bossman
  3. On first listen, it’s really good. Could be one of my favourites this year. Bossman
  4. Bought this based on your recommendation Paul. First listen (snippets) gave me enough that I want to listen again, but the Hold Steady album really hit me. Bossman
  5. Not too many artists are known worldwide by their Christian name alone. That tells the story in itself. Just to add Tom Petty’s comment from ‘Elvis Presley - The Searcher’ '[Elvis] had no road map and he forged a path of what to do and what not to do. And we shouldn't make the mistake of writing off a great artist because of all the clatter that came later. We should dwell in what he did that was so beautiful and everlasting, which was that great, great music'. Bossman
  6. I saw both Jenny and Lucinda at Bristol. 2 really good shows. Particularly enjoyed the performance of Car Wheels On A Gravel Road. Then I saw Kiefer at Exeter. Not too bad ;-)

  8. I found a new one 2 days ago. Let’s Rock by The Black Keys. Perhaps the individual tracks don’t match up to some of their previous singles, but as an album I like every track. Bossman

  10. I like them a lot and like the new album and the one before best. Not seeing them though and I was a bit underwhelmed by their Glastonbury set sadly. Bossman
  11. Great choices guys Agree with Southeastern, Bat Out Of Hell, Hotel California, Abbey Rd, and Pet Sounds and Band On The Run My additions may be too pop for some, but here goes: Powerage - AC/DC 21 - Adele Girl Going Nowhere - Ashley McBryde Tapestry - Carole King Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits American Band - Drive By Truckers Divide - Ed Sheeran This Year’s Model & King Of America - Elvis Costello Elvis Is Back and From Elvis In Memphis - Elvis Presley England Keep My Bones and Be More Kind - Frank Turner The ‘59 Sound - Gaslight Anthem Singing To Strangers - Jack Savoretti Hot Fuss - The Killers Graceland - Paul Simon Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel Everything At Once - Travis The Joshua Tree - U2 (took seeing it live to like every track) Moondance - Van Morrison
  12. Who’s been watching, and who are you enjoying most? I thought The Killers were terrific Really enjoyed the humour of Lewis Capaldi, best intro with the Noel Gallagher response. George Ezra was great despite the handicap of having to sit. Michael Kiwanuka was brilliant, on a smaller scale. Kylie did a decent job in the legends slot. Her vocals weren’t quite strong enough for me, but hit after hit and the crowd seemed to love it. Miley Cyrus had stronger vocals as usual. Took my daughter to see her years ago and was impressed then too. Liam Gallagher was a big disappointment- far too many bum notes. I saw him at the Eden Sessions in midweek and thought he was a lot better. Hoping to see The Proclaimers but can’t find them on iPlayer at the moment. I’ve yet to see Stormzy but intend to. Looking forward to seeing Vampire Weekend and The Cure later Bossman
  13. Absolutely right. The Killers were terrific! Bruce absolutely should’ve opened with BITUSA and closed with Born To Run. He was great and The River was steaming (literally) but it could’ve been even better. Bossman
