Please do not visit or even mention this little known, out of the way, horrendously awful region. It's an abomination, owned in the most part by two poverty-stricken landowners, the Duke of Westminster and the Duke of Lancaster (aka HMQE2). Neither of them encourage the likes of you, you and you...
No coffee on offer at the dealership, on my visit - just bottled water. Receptionist(s) nothing special, sadly.
As a follow up, I forwarded the vehicle health check video and report to my trusted indie - who knows the car inside out. He looked at it last night. This morning, over the phone and...
The "sunroof recall" took place today at my nearest main dealer. On arrival, I was informed that my car would be given a free vehicle health check. The "3 hours required to carry out the inspection" turned into 6 hours. I was given a report on the car's mechanical condition, sent a video of the...
Just dug out the 1991 Little Village album and played it again a few times - Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, Nick Lowe & Jim Keltner - what a band!
This was the promo video: great chorus - with a not very well concealed double meaning (and a great put down line!), fast cars, greasy overalls, sexy...
If anyone's in doubt as to why The Eagles picked Steuart Smith to replace Don Felder. have a listen to this little selection.
Not sure if this counts as a "cover" - as Robbie Robertson was a member of The Band, who wrote & recorded the original all those years ago, but this is one hell of a masterpiece of playing, singing and production.
Joe Cocker's cover of "With a little help from my friends"
Always loved Joe's version of this Lennon/McCartney song. Shame Joe's miming in this video......
A little lighter, but a superb cover of a great CS&N song. I've posted this before, but I'm still amazed that the two girls in this LIVE...
Our drummer locked his keys in the car.
Took us two hours to get the bass player out.
That's not kind!!
Q:. What does a bass player use as a contraceptive?
A. His personality.
Q. What's the similarity between a bass solo and a tornado?
A. You can see them both coming a mile off, and...
Here's a voice and a half. What a performance and sung live: great tonal quality and range, voice control and superb microphone technique (pay attention Jay-Z and all you rappers).
Lovely sounding Guild acoustic guitar too.
Respect to the Dame.
I can't imagine Taylor Swift doing anything as unselfish and generous with her time. It's little wonder Dame Vera was so special to the troops who fought during the war, and their families back home, too.
Super saxy - a tune written by a bunch of lads from Dundee, arranged and conducted by the president of Led Zeppelin's record company with a balding singer busking it on drums - and it works.
wrt Ringo Starr, I would rate him as one of, if not THE luckiest man who has ever lived.
Why? Some of the world's best and busiest session drummers are big fans of Ringo's playing - including Jim Keltner and the amazing Greg Bisonette. Ringo got the gig with the Beatles because he was a great...
