Not good enough, you gotta sing Happy Birthday to me.

I hope you realised it's a concert/book tour that's why i went for the 1st row of the cheaper seats because i was not sure what to expect, i've seen 3 different write up about it.

Can I sing it in my head?

Yeah, I've checked a few out, wavered when I saw the ticket prices, then thought awww lets do it. It wouldn't be Todd if it wasn't a bit idiosyncratic. Someone I listened to a lot in my mid teens, all the 70's early solo and Utopia records and occasionally dropped back into since. Remarkable talent, arguably unfulfilled in some respects.

It was awesome, and the drummer gave me his drumsticks.

I've seen them a few times since the 'comeback' and saw them a few times pushing 40 years ago ( they were my fav band when I was a teenager) I still reckon 'Scared to Dance's is an absolute classic album.

 

I don't think anything will touch the (late great) Stuart Adamson era but Bruce and Jamie do a decent job.

 

Looking forward to the gig in June though, always a great night

Do you know where Tom Kellichan is these days?  I got to know him and his Mrs a few years back, just before they went to Tenerife.

I think he's still out there but not 100%.

He was on drums first time I ever saw them......78 was it?

I think he was at the reunion 'homecoming' gig at The Alhambra, Dunfermline 2010, though I don't think he went on stage.......that was a blinding night.

I was in York with Paul Carrack

He's one of those artists I've never taken to.  His lyrics are like sixth form stuff.

Whilst still liking him. the York Press offers a similar opinion of his lyrics.

 

PAUL Carrack has enjoyed a long career as a vocalist and songwriter; his excellent, soulful voice has featured on hit songs with Ace, Squeeze and Mike + The Mechanics.

These days he’s focused on his own material and band, and he delivered a great show at York Barbican on Saturday. The Sheffield musician, who has been recording and performing for nearly 40 years, led a six-piece backing band that included his son Jack as one of two excellent drummers.

Carrack, 67, was dressed in a pale suit and sported sunglasses and hat, looking a little like Van Morrison, but perhaps with a better handle on people skills. He is not the world’s greatest lyricist; he lacks the subtle flair of a Dylan or Cohen, and often the words to his music are a little clichéd with references to blue eyes, life being too short, wind in sails, digging deep (et cetera), but he delivers the songs with such emotive force that it would take a tough heart not to be moved.

There was more then one handkerchief in the audience during some of the tender moments, such as The Living Years, a hymn to inter-generational dialogue that was a huge hit in 1988. A souped-up version of Ace’s How Long included a raucous audience joining in. As soulful pop goes, you don’t get a lot better than this. The band were brilliant, Carrack was on terrific form, and the crowd went home happy.

I saw Ronnie Spector at the Tramshed in Cardiff on Friday.  Yet again, I was in awe of her.  No Van Zandt related songs, no Southside related songs, but a great solid set.

Her band are brilliant, especially her drummer.  Her bass player and musical director will be a familiar face to Bruce followers.

(Sorry for wonky photo - I don't know how to correct it).
