    I’ll see to giving those two bands a listen as soon as I can… had to chuckle at the Misstallica tribute band, some of the names they come up with for tribute acts are really clever. Mind you, as to naming your offspring after a rock star, it could be worse, like that guy from Liverpool who named one of his kids after the Cup winning side of the 1980’s… all eleven of them for one kid! Or the guy who was intending to name his little girl Boeing… he stopped short but calls her “Baby Boeing” as a nickname! Hey at least your choice wasn’t Moon Unit or Dweezil… remind the lad of that… lol! Catch you later… hope you are having a nice one. Cheers.

    When I was younger, I used to swap stuff with mates so we could tape albums that we didn’t have… cash being tight and all… but sometimes that didn’t go to plan. I recall loaning some albums to a girl at work once and when I got them back they were not only covered in finger marks… okay that happens… but there were several dog paw prints as well! Now, whenever I was loaned other folks albums I would treat them well… clean them, handle with care etc… and they would probably get them back in better nick. To get an album back that they let the dog walk on… well I guess that was when I stopped loaning stuff out. Yeah, I like it that the BBC are putting up more of those old Sight and Sound gigs on BBC4, but its sporadic… sometimes weeks go pby and nada! How come they did TOTP2 yet can’t do a version for Whistle test shows? I know that they erased some of the 70’s ones, but they have tons archived so they could do it… like they did for that series; “Guitar Heroes at the BBC” which was great.

    Got a few other radio shows including some old FRS tapes still to do. Sorry to hear that your tapes didn’t do so well, I am surprised mine are still playable as some have survived 4 house moves in the last 30 years. I made tons of compilations on cassette back in the late 1970’s and 1980’s as I used to travel about 45 mins in and out of Edinburgh on the train every day with a walkman and a clutch of tapes to help pass the time. Now, I have a small mp3 player (not an ipod!) about the size of a matchbox holding about 400 tracks, a sign of the times. Yeah Lone Star were one of those great 70’s bands that sort of faded away before they managed to hit big… always liked them and I think its still possible to get hold of their two albums on a double CD. I first came across them through the old “Sounds” compilation albums… remember those? You saved up about 12 tokens then added about £1.50 for the postage and they would send out a compilation album. They did about 7 I think, from ‘77 to ‘81.

    Hi Chris. Yeah, I think I have a slightly different view on the record collection thing. I understand that where space is a consideration and all, something has to give, but for me, parting with the music would be like losing a limb! I think if something had to go, the music collection would be well down the list methinks! After all with nearly 37 years to get this far, I am kinda attached to all the stuff I have. I have lots of vinyl still languishing in cardboard boxes in a small box room that I work in at home… it is described as a “small” bedroom… but its only big enough for storing the vinyl, lots of CD’s and for where I use my two computers at the moment. One of these days I will get around to putting up some shelving units to display it properly, but at the moment time doesn’t allow. I am using the computers to try and recover some of the old tapes that I have… I processed a Rolling Stones Wembley 1990 Radio 1 FM show over the weekend and it turned out pretty good.

    One of the things I used to do when I was working in Edinburgh and working nights was to go shopping for a few albums on a Friday after finishing my last shift of the week. Now usually, I would also tend to go and have a pub lunch… a few beers etc sometimes before hitting the stores… sometimes after. This occasionally led to amusing purchases…. like coming home and listening to a clutch of CD’s one Friday afternoon and finding that I had a German language version of the 3rd Peter Gabriel album… I should have noticed that “Ein Deutche Album” on the cover was a giveaway… oops… lol! See beer and shopping don’t mix! Okay, you have me at a disadvantage… I had never heard of either Afghan Whigs nor the German group you mentioned Long Distance Calling… but always open to hearing new stuff. What is the German material like... is there anything similar around? I was not really big on the grunge stuff first time around though... for me it was too much like recycling punk!

    The collection is fairly diverse, running from AC-DC through to ZZ Top, but having elements of quite a few styles along the way. For example, taking some that you mentioned… the Donovan track (To Susan On The West Coast Waiting) I came across totally accidentally in 1993 when I heard it used on a pretty good US Vietnam war movie called "84 Charlie Mopic" and I thought it was a really great song. I discovered Molly Hatchet through Tommy Vance when he played some of their tracks prior to showcasing the band’s set at the 1979 Reading festival, where they played probably the best set that the BBC recorded there that year! So I promptly went out and picked up a copy of their then current album which didn’t disappoint. I have to admit a soft spot for a lot of guitar-rich Southern rock… Skynyrd, Dixie Dregs, Molly Hatchet, Allman Brothers band etc. Its great stuff.

    Hi Chris. Well, my record collection has grown in fits and starts from 1973 to the present day. Currently, I have about 3000 singles (a mixture of 7”, 10” 12” vinyl and CD’s) plus approximately 1600 albums… some 700+ vinyl and the rest CD’s. I have maybe obtained only about 70 or 80 tracks as downloads (free ones!) as I still tend to look for CD copies to buy from places like Amazon. I used to use high street stores such as Fopp which had a great catalogue of material, and at very competitive prices, but they are now operating under the HMV banner (the ones that survived going bust a couple years back) so I don’t think that will still hold true. I also have a clutch of old radio 1 shows that were saved to cassette... some dating back to about 1978, which I am presently trying to save to the computer for posterity... when time allows that is!

    I missed an opportunity to see Zeppelin Play at Knebworth in '79 as I was already going away that weekend. I thought... hey, I'll catch them next time around... but who was to know that Bonzo was gonna pass away a year down the road! I do miss the old record stores though. I used to spend hours trawling through them and usually managed to pick up something to make it worth the visit. Sad that most of them are gone now... sign of the times. The 90's also seemed to be the time when the tribute band became a big thing. I don't know if that coincided with a lot of bands failing to tour so the tribute bands got to fill the gap, or that they were a cheaper alternative, but now it seems that for every sucessful band there are not just one, but a whole clutch of tribute bands. Some of them, like the Floyd's, have huge laser lightshows and projections just like you would expect to see with Pink Floyd. There is even a festival called Glastonbudget, just for tribute bands now! Changed days eh.

    Hi again Chris, sorry for taking so long to get back to you. Yeah, I saw some footage of Green playing with The Splinter Group on BBC4 last year and he looked better than he had in a long time. He said that he had managed to get help with changes to his medication which have improved his ability to play and to feel... as he put it, "more human" than he had in a long time. He is less prone to the bouts of paranoia or to feeling robotocised my his meds than before. I forgot about P.A.L. myself... a short lived Purple offshoot. Anything with Ian Paice behind the drums is always worth a look... he was the only continuous member of Deep Purple in all its incarnations. I also used to save all my ticket stubs and concert programmes as well... more accidentally than starting a deliberate collection mind you, but it gives the memory a jolt when I trawl back through them from time to time. Must dig out those old programnes and see what they are like now!

    Oh and can I ask when you saw Peter Green? I know that he still performs occasionally and I loved that docu that was done on him for BBC 4 last year. I was listening to some of the material he recorded about 1979/80 recently, "In The Skies", "Fool No More" etc and its a crying shame that we done't get to hear more of him on radio these days. He has had a rough time over the years but when he can pick up that guitar and feels like playing he still has the magic in those fingers. Have you seen him play recently? What was he like playing live?

    Thanks for that YouTube link... I shall have to wait to use it on my home machine as I am using a work machine just now and all the YouTube stuff gets blocked! I know what you mean about the alcoholic haze on a Friday evening while the FRS was on... shame that we don't have shows as good as that nowadays. Loved the band list that have there... envious of a clutch of them... Zeppelin and Rory Gallagher to name but two, though I thought you may have seen AC/DC or Queen (helps fill that blank Q spot) as they have been around a while. I saw AC/DC back in '86 and Queen in '82 and '85... both acts gave great value for money and performed fabulous shows. Like myself, you have seen all the Deep Purple members bands (Gillan, Whitesnake, Rainbow) but not Purple themselves... I would have loved to have seen the mark II lineup at their best in the early 70's. What about Y and Z? Any plans for those... Neil Young and ZZ Top perhaps? Cheers.

    Thanks for the shout. Yeah, I had been listening to some old Friday Rock Show tapes and the session that they did for the show with "Another case of suicide" and "Leo The Jester" among others. Never saw any vids to go with those tracks, so if you have a YouTube link that would be most appreciated... Cheers.

À propos de moi

"the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
