Adore Jorma Kaukonen... first with Jefferson Airplane, then Hot Tuna. So talented.. Acoustic! Bluesy, nasally voice.
I'll look Hank Marvin up! Thanks.

I loved the way it was banned by the BBC, it promptly went to number one. That video posted is the tame one to avoid offending anyone, I don't want anymore slapped ankles for being a naughty boy.

I used to have " Never Mind the Bollocks" on cassette of all things! Got ruined in the boom box. So, I had my brother record it for me onto a CD! When I'm alone ( don't tell anyone), I take me glasses off and have at it! I've got got a front door made of cypress wood(harrrrrd).Think ya get the idea. Got to "get it out" somehow!"
But knowing that THEY opened for the 101ers(the Clash!!!!!) just makes me giggle. Dunno why!
Knowing both bands, politically on the "peoples'" side was, is still awesome for me.
Have you seen Joe Strummer 's "The Future is Unwritten"? Excellent rocdoc.
Ciao for now...

p.s.just saw " Apache ".Pretty good! Then you might also like Mark Knopfler's style.

I've always regarded Hank Marvin a far better guitarist then Eric Clapton.

That's the first time I've seen a man dressed up in a "proper" suit playing a guitar. Wow.. I couldn't sleep and popped on here to see what's happening .. ..

This thread takes me back to high school.. we were some crazy kids going to those concerts., we had a blast...

AC/DC was the first......right after ZZTop...


I love some of this music . Molly Hatchet, the Stones, Journey at the Texas Jamm, and the BEATLES.. they know how to do it.....
the Bangle"s "Walk like an Egyption" ohwayoh....

As a matter of interest one of my cousins was dating a member of the Shadows, she met Cliff Richard and Hank Marvin, she reckoned they were really nice chaps. The mean bugger never got me an autograph though.

On my last operational RAF station in UK every Thursday pay day we had a live group and a couple bus loads of nurses to entertain the sick the lame and the lazy (otherwise known as airmen), one Thursday we had Long John Baldry before he became better known. Quite enjoyable.

That's a shame, Brit, don't feel lonely, I've been to many a concert and not one autograph collected...


Dadsgirl...YouTube is definitely on my list.

I will stick to my guns and say Dire Straits' first album is their absolute best!
I must say you do have impeccable taste in music!
