Mans best friend

Dunno if it was his guitar playing, but  this busker seemed to be doing really well, though I suspect it might have had something to do with his mate:-)




Twitter works!

Noticed a tweet from the singer song writer Passenger saying he was Busking in Edinburgh today, before you think I’m cool I had to ask my teenagers who Passenger was. They seemed keen to go, so off we headed to the Royal Mile.

We found him next to St Giles Cathedral, with a crowd of 100 plus mainly teenage girls. He played for over an hour and got to be honest I enjoyed it.

The pictures,





Hanging on his every word.



I might have been slightly older than the average age of the audience!






Every vantage point was used.


Above is link to one of Passengers songs, in case like me you didn’t know who he was!

Just, Cool!

Took this photograph last year at a Specials gig at the SECC , Glasgow, I was going through my photographs and I just thought how cool is this guy, Lynval Golding.

It was a great gig 🙂

Jimi Hendrix

Watching Jimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight, on Sky Arts, how good was that guy? Well I think he was the best, still sounds fantastic 40 plus years later.

I know it’s been said that his legendary status has come about partly because of his untimely death at such a young age, but I think it has much more to do with the fact that he was a fantastic guitarist, playing some fantastic music.

First album I ever bought was a Hendrix album an I’ve never stopped liking him irrespective of the vagaries of whats fashionable in music over the intervening years. Great music will always be great music, something Jimi produced in bucket loads.

We’ll never know what he would have gone on to produce, but what he left behind is one of the best bodies of work of any rock musician and it has stood the test of time extremely well.

Yep I’m a fan 🙂

Oh and well done Sky Arts for airing lots of good music.

Auld Radges

The Best Indie Band that never was,

The Verve did, Lucky Man, the Auld Radges would have done, Yon’s a chancer!

I’d have went to their gigs, they look the part 🙂


Just watched the Pearl Jam movie PJ20, again, now I know I’m a self confessed fan, but I have to say this movie is well worth a watch even if you don’t count yourself as a fan. Its well put together, well done Cameron Crowe.

I’ve watched a few Band/ concert documentary’s and this is one of the best efforts, anyone who’s sat through the never ending Woodstock movie knows there are a few dodgy ones out there. Oh! did I just commit sacrilege there, I slagged Woodstock the Movie. Some great music, but self indulgent, just a wee bit?

Anyway if you like Rock music give PJ20 a look, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Sky Arts

Just a quick thought, what terrible coverage of the Isle of Wight Festival by Sky Arts, that was shocking, or was it just a terrible Festival?

Waited for hours to see Pearl Jam, an got three songs! They kept showing bits of Madness, very odd.

Think they’d have been better binning the live format and just put together a highlights show as they didn’t seem to actually show any of the performances live.

Disappointing Sky.

Some pictures from the Pearl Jam gig at the Manchester Arena 20/06/2012

Pearl Jam


Just back in the hotel from the Pearl Jam gig at the Manchester Arena, they didn’t disappoint, great show, I am biased, they are my favourite band, but I’m sure even if you’re not their biggest fan you’d have enjoyed that.

Couple of hours of fantastic Rock n Roll, they ended with Rockin in the free World, which made my night, in my opinion Pearl Jam have made that song their own, sorry Neil!

Can’t wait for the next tour.

Tomorrow Manchester

Listening to Pearl Jam at the moment, their album TEN, it never gets old.

Tomorrow night I’ll be listening to them in person at the Manchester Arena, saw them two years ago at Hyde Park, which was a great show, expecting the same again tomorrow.

I’m in the gods, to old for mosh pits!

Hopefully get some decent pictures, sure I’ll get some great memories, can’t wait!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
