The band was formed in 1986, so they are a bit modern for me!

Last two days been flicking through best end of year lists looking for something to spark me. I've found it. Colter Wall. Sh!t what a voice for 22. And songwriter.

Yes!! he is certainly the real deal. And agree, no way should a 22 year old kid have that voice.

So far I'm seeing Jeff TWeedy somewhere in London... and John Scofield at Union Chapel... I think that's it for now. 

Edit: oh and Katy Perry in the summer, at the O2 Arena, with my 8 year old daughter.

Unfortunately, with Bob's current health issues (2017 US tour cancelled after the first few dates), I reckon the chances of us ever getting a Euro visit went from slim to virtually none.

Pearl Jam will surely come over. BST are badly missing a rock act and they would certainly fit their bill. I would need an arena show to sway me.

Sweet! That'll be a great night out. Their gigs are so incredibly feel good you'll come out with a huge grin on your face.

What a great live band they are. Seen then half a dozen times from clubs to arena, and they're brilliant everywhere.

They heard me.  https://www.stereoboard.com/content/view/212993/9   Pearl Jam 02,trouble is the fan club will take up a lot of the tickets.

Still hoping BST have offered Bob silly money to come over, his tour was postponed and fans told to hold onto tickets, it's being rescheduled for the Spring.
