    I've never attended a concert there but I was thrilled to look around it last time I was in London. A wonderful place.

    Brilliant venue for sound.

    I’ve seen Bruce (D&D Tour), the Beach Boys (50th anniversary tour), Jake Bugg and Jackson Browne there and they were 4 terrific shows.

  2. I just booked my first show for over a year. Martyn Joseph at Topsham nr Exeter on 27th Nov.

    I have other shows before that that have been postponed once or twice already the first of which is Drive-By Truckers still scheduled for 2nd June as far as I know. I figured MJ at Topsham has a chance, less than 200 I imagine in a local hall and if anything it’s likely to be postponed rather than cancelled. I remain quite reluctant to book bigger shows until previously cancelled stuff happens and until I feel ok to attend them

  3. I think there’s another elephant in the room nobody’s mentioning.

    If they’re not planning dates/itinerary/venues, and if existing tours do not go ahead or get further postponed, they’re likely to encounter huge problems securing places to play by leaving it too late.

    I’ve already had shows postponed twice so that some 2020 shows will be in 2022 if they don’t get cancelled or postponed again. Other artists are already booking venues for 2021/2022.

    I fear even if they decide they want to take any risk and tour in 2022, it’ll be logistically impossible when they try to arrange the bookings. 

    So I tend to agree with all those who say let’s wait and see what happens. Just glad I got my 50th show under my belt when it was easier.

    Minus Bruce, and in no particular order:

    Rod Stewart and the Faces, up to 1975

    Big Country

    Richard Hawley

    Rory Gallagher

    And, finally, a little known band, Paper Aeroplanes

    Haven’t ‘Paper Aeroplanes’ split up?


  5. Now that we appear to be back on track, one of my five was Chris Stapleton who I’ve loved ever since someone on here posted a thread about his debut album ‘Traveller’. Late last year he put out his 4th ‘Starting Over’. It gets better with every listen imo. Here’s the rocky ‘Arkansas’

    Eddie wasn't the only one. Anyone reading what's left might think Bossman did something wrong.

    I don’t care what they think Eileen. I do care about the people that know me putting the fellow straight so thank you. It’s one thing if he doesn’t care for my taste (which of course is class) but to make unfounded accusations quoting posts elsewhere by someone other than me is tantamount to libel.

    lucky I’m so easy going :D

    Please keep your personal animosity off the board. 

    If you want to pursue that discussion, trade email addresses and have at it, then we all dont have to watch



    Didn’t ask for your input, but I quite happily posted my fave artists to get attacked by someone who seems to have mistaken me for someone else. I see nothing wrong with defending myself from an untrue allegation, but thanks for your input. Happily there are plenty of members here that I expect to vouch for me mate.

    What do you think he was writing on that piece of paper? And why was he lighting that candle? We may never know. 

    For some reason, I feel the need to go to my local Jeep dealer tomorrow though. 

    I was just gonna say does anyone think they’ll buy a Jeep as a result of this, but you shot that comment down, lol.

    oh well, back to work...

    My favorite!!!!!! I can’t get it out of my head! 

    His delivery of it is SO good! I went back to the you tube of the piano version and whilst I understand the comments saying that is the ultimate version, I can’t believe how good this one sounds too and I think I prefer the new one overall. Would love to hear a cleaned up version of the original too in Tracks 2 too sometime...
