    3. He could do with a haircut.

      Delete
    4. He could do with some rejuvenating face-cream, but he's far more appealing than Rick Wakeman who could definitely do with a haircut and possibly a shower.

    5. Francis Rossi got it right when he chopped the pony tail. A man gets to a certain age and he just has to let go. Even the hippies and the rockers.
      How's your Tom looking these days?

    8. Factoid... "1985, Former Undertones singer Feargal Sharkey had his only UK No.1 single with the Maria McKee song 'A Good Heart' written about her relationship with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboard player Benmont Tench. Sharkey followed up the single with Tench written 'You Little Thief', this time about Tench's relationship with McKee"

  5. Well, Robert was amazingly, outstandingly, superlatively wonderful. Can still hardly believe I was there, standing only a few rows from the front, in what I thought was a great venue - never been there before, but liked it a lot. Can't actually imagine what it's like standing up in one of the wee boxes and was unaware when I bought my ticket that there were maybe options? Well wouldn't have chosen differently for sure, just glad I didn't inadvertently end up with a ticket for the balcony. Anyhow, the Sensational Space Shifters are a brilliant band and it was altogether a very, very memorable evening. I wouldn't blame Robert if he does refuse to take up on a Led Zep tour - he's doing his own fantastic stuff now and it's great to see him keep moving on.

    2. a block of conceret's probably the best place for them.

      John Mayall still doing good stuff, but the revelation of the night was a trio called King King - the singer/guitarist's from Glasgow and he's very, very good. Even did a Frankie Miller cover. Great voice, great guitar. Go see him if you get a chance.

  10. A block of conceret you say Gaie. Got the norrieitis have you.

    Glen and I could knock up a wee mix design for you. Prescribed or designated mix madam?

    Probably to encase Brooooooce cd's a ST3 mix more than sufficient.

  11. Do any of the discs feature heavy music played on the conceretina?

    8. I've met David Hayman a few times. He does talks for bairns about charity work. Very motivational and extremely moving speaker. Not many folk kain about his good work - check out Spirit Aid on Google, and no, it's no' that spirit

      Delete
    9. Yep, I heard him talk about it at length on the radio about Spirit Aid and was very impressed with his sincerity and dedication. I think he's been to Rothesay a few times to talk as well.
