  1. My twelve year old self absolutely loved the Rollers. I heard as well that this was the only group apart from the Beatles that was an official mania (Beatlemania, Rollermania) Rip Les
  2. So sad to hear of the passing of the genius that was Jim Steinman. I absolutely loved his Bad For Good album and had it pretty much on rotation with The River, Bat Out of Hell and WIESS for the whole of 1981. Rock and Roll Dreams Come True - just brilliant. RIP
  3. Count me in too Rachel. This will be a lovely tribute
  4. So sorry to hear about the loss of your mum @Captain Chaos
  5. This is such sad and shocking news. Like others I had never met Marsha but loved her posts and the way she made Rachel so welcome.
  6. Done and thanks for all you do to keep this place going, this year more than ever.
  7. I'm pleased to see a few more votes now for Song for Orphans. I think it's just majestic - just stands out for me but all the songs are really great apart from perhaps HOATG and JNAS.
  8. As above for me the film is absolutely beautiful and the music sounds even better than on the album I think. It just seems to have that concert feel to it. Love Patti's vocals which you don't hear so much and think Max's drumming is such a powerhouse. It was great to see how he takes his cues from Bruce and how all the band Loved the album instantly which was not the case for WS. Bruce has captured how we all might feel as we get older. So still writing his letter to us. Song For Orphans is favourite - just majestic. We'll have to take his word for what the lyrics are actually about! Not at all keen on the lyrics for Janey. Whatever sort of abuse is going on for this girl - who is my namesake - is not really handled as well as other songs and would not be comfortable to sing along with. I agree with others that part of that is the legacy of it being written right at the early part of his career. Interesting that JNAS and Rainmaker are the only ones not to appear in the film. (unless i missed them) ISYIMD is a great end to the album. I can imagine that he could end a concert with this and the "I'll see you in my dreams" replacing the usual "we'll see you next time". Or is that just too sad to contemplate?
  9. Hopefully you will be able to watch until the end of the week. We just had to persuade son to access the free trial via his account and are on a hiding to nothing if we don't cancel by the weekend!
  10. I agree with you on this. Certainly in the UK this makes it seem less accessible. Happily we have got a free trial and thought the film was beautiful.
  11. Happy Birthday Boss. Thanks for all the music - our lives are enriched.
