Right! It's senior moment time!

SENIOR MOMENT # 1

The Doors (well, Kreiger & Manzarek) + the RPO at Shepherds Bush Empire on Friday 16/7. This turns out to clash with my daughter's graduation ceremony in Leeds! There is no chance I can make it back in time so I'm offering the tickets for a reasonable price.

As it happens, Bela Fleck is at The Barbican the same night with Eberhard Weber & Zakir Hussain. Bugger!

SENIOR MOMENT # 2

I seem to have f***ed up booking tickets for Robert Randolph at the Bush Hall on 4 Aug and have ended up with two extra! Again, if anyone wants a bargain, send me a PM.

I really must stop doing this..........

I'm heading to London to see Jeff Beck in October but i'm staying for 4 nights and am not sure of any good Music venues. Anyone got any tips or know of any gigs lined up between the 26th and 30th of October?

Also, if anyone recommends any places to eat and drink around the Royal Albert Hall that would be most welcome too

Thanks

You can't go far wrong with the 100 Club or Charlotte Street Blues Bar. Check listings.

The area around the RAH is upmarket residential but you will find some decent pubs in amongst the mews.

27th October should have Sam Hare's regular Wednesday Jam night at Charlotte St, which generally has a high standard of folks up playing.

As recommended already by my good friends above ... Charlotte Street Blues Bar has to be worth checking out ...

With regards to a pub near the Royal Albert Hall .....



I would recommend the Queens Arms - it is the closest pub to the Royal Albert Hall – has good beer and reasonable grub - but can get crowded as Imperial College is just around the corner – here is a link to the website

Any one going to see Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites) on Sunday at the Borderline? It's real bar room rock and the last couple of times I've seen him, both he and the band have been fantastic.

Jim - check him out when he plays Bristol on the 9th July (http://www.danbairdandhomemadesin.com/shows.html). I think you'll love it.

Also if anyone's interested, my band The Snakeoil Rattlers are playing Upstairs At The Ritzy in Brixton tomorrow and then at the 12 Bar in Central London next Saturday (10th July)

Have no idea what to expect but am going by previous recommendations on here (I think Jim is already a fan!).

Sure am! He's playing Bristol on Friday 9th, so I'll catch him there. Watch out for his DVD - filmed at a half empty gig in the Midlands, it's a great set. Picked mine up for about a fiver on Amazon marketplace.

I'll be at the Borderline tonight Barry. This gig nearly flew under my radar for some reason but just about recovered from last nights' Ozzy/Beer shenanigans and ready to go out and do it all again.

Janet and I both enjoyed an excellent concert last night ...

CSN @ Royal Albert Hall ... Sat 3rd July, 2010

Crosby, Stills & Nash are one of the most enduring and original musical partnerships of our era, their peerless three-part harmony vocals, inspired song writing and brilliant musicianship has captivated us all. With an impassioned point of view as personal as it is message-oriented, they have always sung about socially relevant issues and universal values.

David Crosby has survived severe substance abuse and a liver-transplant to emerge as a beaming, snowy-haired figure reminiscent of a giant garden gnome. Yet despite the potential ravages such abuse can afflict, his voice remains as powerful as ever, as witnessed by a full-blooded rendition of the song “Delta” during the second half of the performance.

Steven Stills resembles a battered prizefighter in dishevelled clothing, and whilst it sometimes takes him half a verse to get the right key for his vocals, his guitarmanship is still as dexterous as ever.

As for Graham Nash, there has always been something faintly irritating about his sanctimonious earnestness, but no one can question the sentiments of his lyrics. He also writes a wonderful melody, has done ever since his early career with the Hollies, and his voice remains in astonishingly good shape, just about managing to hit those high notes with a grimace and a leg twitch to help. You also sense that he is the glue that has kept the frequently warring egos within the group together for so long.

There was a period in the 70s when few would have laid odds on all three still being alive today, let alone still playing together; yet their current tour finds them astonishingly re-invigorated. It is now more than 40 years since they made their made their debut at Woodstock, an event that they memorialised in covering Joni Mitchell’s song of the same name, and it was this song with which they nostalgically opened last nights concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The show proceeded with a nice balance of electric and acoustic numbers, most of the traditional CSNY favourites were to be heard. But there was also a fair splattering of more poignant individual efforts, such as Nash’s “Military Madness” that was spitting with anger; the previously mentioned “Delta” so powerfully delivered by Crosby, and Stills’s Buffalo Springfield hit “Bluebird”, which highlighted his blistering guitar-playing and brought the audience to their feet in standing ovation.

The set list also included a selection of other people’s songs – the Beatles “Norwegian Wood”, the Stones “Ruby Tuesday”, Dylan’s “Girl From The North Country”, the Who’s “Behind Blue Eyes”, and even a rendition of the Allman Brothers “Midnight Rider”. It is indeed a measure of their supreme competence that they could cover such well known and popular songs without copying the original versions, and make the songs completely their own. Perhaps the most re-assuring aspect of their performance was that their harmonies, so central to their sound, remain as pristine as ever; exemplified by the interplay between Nash and Crosby’s voices on “Guinevere”.

Overall, a thoroughly well compiled and delivered concert, and one that was rapturously received by all at the Royal Albert Hall, whether teenagers or septuagenarians, such was the spell cast by the musical harmonies.

Set list:

01. Woodstock
02. Military Madness (Graham Nash cover)
03. Long Time Gone
04. Bluebird (Buffalo Springfield cover)
05. Marrakesh Express
06. Southern Cross
07. In Your Name (Graham Nash cover)
08. Long May You Run
09. Deja Vu

13. Midnight Rider (Gregg Allman cover)
14. Girl From The North Country (Bob Dylan cover)
15. Ruby Tuesday (The Rolling Stones cover)
16. Guinnevere
17. Delta
18. Our House
19. Cathedral
20. Behind Blue Eyes (The Who cover)
21. Rock 'n' Roll Woman
22. Almost Cut My Hair
Encores
23. Love the One You're With
24. Chicago
