Got the new Riversideski too, but am currently in blues rock mode with a lot of Ten Years After (the new 10 CD Box - lovingly done), Stone The Crows/Maggie Bell and Alvin Lee solo. Also heard the Overend Watts solo album (a great singer he is not, but it's classic Brit humo(u)r) and - my guilty pleasure  :gay: - a lot of Glenn Frey and some Don Henley radio broadcasts.

Plus some Tommy Bolin.

He replaced Ritchie Blackmore.  :rimshot:

I interviewed Marko of Nightwish once. A great guy. The Buzzard and doubleneck player.
I don't know why, but the interview was like a discussion here and after 20 minutes we were talking about rock 'n roll antics. The conclusion was that -A- flatscreens don't explode that nice as an old television when you throw it out of your hotel room and - B- modern hotel rooms' lack of windows, so no way to throw televisions out. it was a great and hilarious interview after a serious bit.

Hawkwind - after decades where no one took them seriously and they were discarded as Silver Machine one hit wonders - are finally being reappreciated in recent years. It's a general trend, so you're cool for once!

 you don't know the half of it, I've been wearing Hawaiian shirts and sporting a big bushy beard for years, now suddenly hipsters, and I'm more fashionable now than I've ever been in my life.
 I cant wait for them to move on, but  the bitchy looks you get from hipsters whos beards "challenge "yours are hilarious, now I get what busty blondes have to go through :)

I would have added Chris Stapleton, but he wouldn't have passed Dave's strict country test!  :-\

And the new Rick Springfield - which sounds nothing like you would think ...

Guitar player is a dead ringer for "Highlander" Kenny.

Oi...!  :mrgreen:

Would it surprise folks that I'm sort of not listening to much of anything lately... multiple issues...

Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

Came across this one again (someone posted a mini doc on another forum) and it's been stuck in my head on/off for 2 weeks.  Never knew these were local boys:

Hey little Donna
Still wanna?
You said to ring you up
When I was in Torronna

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)

I like the new Rick Springfield actually.


A friend of mine worked on the upcoming Blackberry Smoke record & I was able to listen to the whole thing a couple of times at his place, it may end up being my favorite one of theirs.

Nightwish is playing here next month and I think I'd be foolish not to go see them!

I've been rediscovering Hawkwind

 they played locally so I blagged my way in for old times sake and was pleasantly surprised, the young lad they have playing bass for them is really proper good, like Cliff Burton good. Also the support band lunched it so Hawkwind  did a whole acoustic set as an opener

 Since then Ive been working my way through their back catalogue on my commute. its really cool listening to stuff I was into as a teenager with my present much more sophisticated musician/producers ears. There's a lot of really clever bass stuff I never appreciated before

They do a good show, and pick the right songs. Gonna see them again in August (in Canterbury!)

I did see the "namesakes" of this band with the original "The Blues Band" on their first tours but Hughie Flint moved on after the 2nd LP... his last regular project...
