The bummer about growing up in Ireland - apart from the wonderfully-euphemistically named "Troubles", the Catholic Church, prudish girls and the constant rain - was the lack of bands coming across. So I missed out on Alex Harvey, BeBop and a host of other heroes. When things quietened down many of these bands had disbanded and/or gone to the Great Gig in the Sky! Others had become bloated corporate whores e.g. The Eagles/Bon Jovi/Springsteen/etc and lost their way. When I got a few quid and was able to travel, I made a few pilgrimages (excluding Lourdes!) outside Ireland to see artists I loved before they joined the aforementioned list of disbanded etc in a kind of things-to-do-before-I-die way. So extreme jealousy at you having seen Sir Bill live, Mr White!

I see your favourites are making a pilgrimage to Holmfirth later in the year 64 - i'll probably turn a blind eye myself but anyone who can't get enough of twin lead will surely find hand pulled Landlord and 10 minute solos too much to resist. Perhaps you can get the lads out from Worth Valley :wink:

Missed out on Porcupine Tree this time (priority elsewhere...)

By the time I realised they were on it was already too late to get Hold Steady tickets for Manchester. Mrs was dead keen as well. I eagerly await your show reports for the rest :wink:

Know the feeling Gino, lived in the East Riding for the last 10 years where culture doesn't exist :shock: can't have everything i suppose, Morrissey made it to Bridlington once 8-) only a 12 miles from our lovely village in the Wolds

I go see them with you mate as oppose to the riot sat at home drinking his fine brews somewhere in the Ribble, although i would have to draw a line with Rush :roll: Oh my god what have done, just alienated most of the posters on here.
Apologies Revie, Barry & all :!:

Blussy HELL!!! Found out yesterday the Jeff Beck is playing our local concert hall on the 11th of November - went to get a ticket today ...SOLD OUT!!!! In frikkin November!! :evil:
Mind you, some decent acts lined up for the rest of the year so far:

Crowded House, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel and also Marianne Faithful, all playing in June - Fun Lovin Criminals and Buddy Guy both booked for July - Little Feat in August - and Walter Trout in October.
Also a rumour that Ozzie will play a couple of nights here, whilst he is in Denmark for two pop festivals! :-D Fingers X'd!

Just need to rob a bank now, so I can afford all those gigs! :roll:

Has anyone ever mentioned The Golden Palominos - out comes the vinyl. Anyway Lowell is my hero and here The Palominos nail one of his classics. Saddle up the palomino, the sun is going down. The way I feel, this must be real.

Played Mike Oldfields's Incantations.
Not someone we've discussed on these pages if I recall. Anyone an Oldfield fan out there.
Personally only bought some of his earlier work on vinyl and not rteplaced them all on CD. Also have The Platinum Collection which has bits from most of his albumns.
Enjoyed some of his more mainstream stuff such as Crime of Passion, Five Miles Out and Moonlight Shadow.

Unsurprisingly, been an Oldfield fan for yonks. One of the great, underrated guitarists - has his own sound, dontcherknow...

Bought 'Music of the Spheres' on sunday - nice...
Music so wishes to be heard that it sometimes calls on unlikely characters to give it voice...
