  • Kirsty McColl would have been 57 today.
    Bullseye was not her favourite program !

  • Leonard Cohen. 'There's a crack in everything. It's how the light gets in!

    He knew things about life, and if you listened, you could learn.

    Here's a rather endearing reply he wrote to a query in the Grauniad some years ago

  • Which makes it 2 of the 3 now (Keith Emerson shot himself in March).

    WTF, 2016?

    I know it's unfashionable, but I still think this is great Toccata


  • I really love ELP, especially their eponymous album... Grim Reaper was fast, one year and two thirds of the band are on the other side. Very sad day.
  • Something rather poetic in the title of this in the circumstances.
    The staging of the performance is rather reminiscent of Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii.
    Carl must be looking over his shoulder.

  • Yeah, dead people.  Reminds me of going to Paris.  I had the option of going and looking at dead people in the Louvre or looking at live people in the streets.  Guess which I picked?
  • Grim Reaper isn't done yet. Rick Parfitt from The Quo. What a sad year :/
  • Hey Turqs. Another sad piece of news and another low for 2016. I saw Status Quo several times in the mid 80's when they supported Queen on their last tour. I loved them at school and we would jump about like loons listening to the Quo using tennis rackets as guitars!
    Rick did a guitar learning program called 'Rick Parfitt's Rhythm Method' but you may enjoy this clip of Rick and Francis doing a bit of Caroline Acoustic or 'Stripped Bare' !!!

    Wow. What a year !
    FFS celebs, stay in hiding for the next few days, only 6 to go.
