Have we seen this one in this thread?



LOL, I just noticed this (note the intro/bridge in the Jam tune; compared to the riff after the drumroll in the pistols tune):



The Jam is actually more Pistols than the Pistols here (faster for one thing).

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

Here's a short one with my 4003S/8. Kinda tripped myself up at 1:55, but whatever.  ;)



I thoroughly enjoyed this. Great music.
A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Not aware that anybody from Pilot died yet, but they are still eligible here?



No vids with Rics piercing balloons yet either - really a shame!

70s gold. And a double neck to boot! Think these guys liked Wings?

There's a whole lot of Beatles, Wings, Badfinger and 10cc in them. Sophisticated British 70ies pop. They were a real band, but with interesting pedigrees: ex Bay City Roller (the singing bassist, he didn't want to do the teeny bop thing they were offered, so he left), top notch British session musicians. Some of them would end up in later incarnations of acts as diverse as Alan Parsons Project, 10cc, Al Stewart, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Kate Bush and, yes, even Paul McCartney (the drummer Stuart Tosh). Though if you think about it: the common thread of all of them is "sophisticated British pop" and an affiliation with Alan Parsons as a producer.

Don't ever remember seeing him play a Ric before... 40 years... saw them at Hammersmith (iirc) and the Marquee that year... don't they go by in a flash...

I stand sit corrected...  but the OCD has now kicked in so digging-in furiously... ;)
As Jeff's post above, presume this was OGWT recordings, or some such similar BBC broadcast...
