  1. Such sad news to wake up to. The Professor will always be the greatest as far as I am concerned. RIP.
  2. Happy New Year everyone. Wishing health and happiness to all.
  3. Sorry - slightly late to the Christmas element of the party, but finally got round to it. Thanks again to all the mods for the time and effort keeping this place going and fixing it when the technology gremlins take hold.
  4. Well I'm currently watching the Xmas present Blu-ray having missed it at the cinema. And permanently on the edge of tears. This is our hero, at 70, probably unwell, probably with one last album and tour left in him, putting his heart and soul into something ethereal and beautuful which clearly means a huge amount to him. When it's all done, this will be as unmissable as Hammersmith 75, LINYC, Hyde Park. It's Bruce, open, stripped down and brutally honest. Although Rhinestone Cowboy will forever be owned by Glen Campbell. Sorry.
  5. This was lots of fun - with added Disciples of Soul
  6. Thanks! Thankfully its only the interview in London!
  7. Down in London for a job interview and sitting in a very average hotel, eating a very average breakfast, watching the waters gently lap the canyons of Canary Wharf. Amongst the oh-so-normal Christmas playlist, the mood is lifted by the lost (as far as the UK seems to be concerned) Christmas classic
  8. 1. Neil Peart 2. Phil Collins (Really. Try Apocalypse in 9/8.....) 3. Phil Jordan 4. Ian Mosley 5. Frank Beard Special mention to Cozy Powell's pyrotechnics, thanks to which I have a nice little scar as a result of ducking and implanting my forehead on the stage scaffolding at the front row of Newcastle City Hall.
  9. As far as I'm concerned, he can grab as much money as he likes if he's going to play one of the seminal "live albums" of the 70s. I reckon the last time I saw him was about 1983, so it's probably time to get reacquainted!
  10. Well, the last 30 minutes have been like a sign-request frenzy. Small bar in Stockholm with a house band who've done Jole Blon and You Never Can Tell very well
  11. As someone who lived in Redcar until he was 12 before we moved to Stokesley, where my Mum still lives, I can confirm all of that!
