EnglisghDarren............Flew to Liverpool [from Jersey] last week to catch the Band at the Olympia. Fantastic gig, you'll love it.
I have to confess to hating Led Zep [saw them 4 times in early 70's!!!] and particularly Robert's singing style but am totally hooked on his last two efforts. Great material, well played and sang. I was particularly wanting to see this band as Buddy Millar, Darrell Scott and Patty Griffin are amongst my favourite singers. Bassist Byron House is also a monster musician. Robert sang beautifully and was most gracious in allowing Buddy, Darrell and Patty to take a song each.
He is clearly having the time of his life.
Enjoy Sunday.
Nick

ROFL !!!

I was at Walter Trout in Sevenoaks last Friday. Pretty so-so, I thought, but maybe I'm just jaded from too much Blues/ Rock guitar recently. Definitely the ugliest band I've ever seen - I've been having nightmares!

Wish I had stayed in the pub for Laura Johnstone's set! Truly awful. Doobies played really well but felt a bit cheated at under 90 minutes including encore, and although the vocal mix was good the instruments were a bit muddy from where I was, but thoroughly enjoyed it anyway.

Janet and I stayed in the bar with Barry during Lara Johnston's opening set at the Hammersmith Apollo on Friday night ... great to catch up with Barry again ... can't believe it is almost a year since the Mule gig that we last had a pre-show meeting ...

Doobies were excellent ... sound was a bit muffled at first but sorted out by the 2nd or 3rd song and was fine from then on ... they played all the old favourites from the early albums ... with only "Taking It To The Streets" from the McDonald era ... not too sure about the new tunes ... will need to hear more before I invest in the new album ... but a great gig overall ...

and although a short gig at 1 hours as Jim noted ... one has to take into account that often one track led straight into another and if they had taken a break between each song then the gig would probably have been 15 to 20 minutes longer ... so overall still good value ... would recommend going to see them if they are playing near you ...

Yeah, met up with Martin and Mal in the foyer at Bristol, was good to see them again and we were talking about it being a year since we all met up. With Mule on a sabbatical next year, looks like we'll be depending on Susan and Derek to give us an excuse for a beer or seven.

Hey guys, enjoy the Truckers tonight at the Empire, wish i was with you but finances didn't allow when tix went on sale (gig not sold out) and still don't as there's 3 other London gigs in 3 weeks (Cheap Trick who were excellent on Friday, David McAlmont & Fistful of Mercy). Those train fares mount up! Looks like I'll be missing Ryan Bingham in Bristol this week as well due to a meeting

Anyone going to see Fistful of Mercy at Koko?

Black Country Communion at the Empire on 30th December - would have been there as I think the CD's great and the music would counteract my dislike of Bonnamassa's incessant posing, but that's not a good day for me unfortunately.

If tix not sold out by payday, I might take myself along for some pomp rock at Wembley on Saturday 4th June with Journey, Foreigner and Styx all on the one bill.

I was at DBT last night but didn't see anyone else.

I didn't know their music before and it wasn't quite what I'd expected - much louder and heavier.

They came on 10 minutes late at 21.10 and finished at 22.20. I waited 5 mins for an encore - which I'm sure came and was probably quite long - but couldn't be bothered waiting any longer.

I wasn't that impressed by the material which was very similar and to say I'd heard enough after 70 mins is quite an indictment. The playing was fine, as was the singing (weak female bass player excepted). It just never "caught fire".

I'm sure those who love them would have enjoyed it but my view is as one who was uninitiated.

Saw the Truckers in Glasgow on Wednesday and as one of the initiated they were absolutely imense. Played for well over two hours and damn near blew the ceiling of the abc. No ordinary songs in the set, that I could hear,and as for the female bass player, who needs to be able to sing with a pair of mams like that

Heads up for all attending Matt Schofield at The Borderline on Sat 20 Nov:

"This is just a quick advisory for all of you coming to this show that Matt will be on stage at 8pm. There is no support act. Instead you're going to get nearly two hours of righteous, funky blues! (and before you ask - yes, there will be an interval break).

Matt and Jonny are looking forward to seeing London-area fans again (it's been a while). This of course, will be Kevin Hayes' first experience of the Schofield London brigade - though he's no stranger to london having played here many times on tour with Robert Cray. Reaction so far to this UK tour has been outstanding. The band is on fire!"

Hello my dears

It has definitely been too long since we've met up for pre-/during- and afterbeers
Are there any good gigs coming up near London in the next 6-12 months?

Colin,
I was not aware he was playing 100 Club, but I am going to see Joanne Shaw Taylor in our local Conservative Club, though I'm true Red in more ways than one.
Next day Im off to New York couldn't resist Another One For Woody.

Not to mention that Norwegian firewater that Del brings!!! (which I can never remember the name of).
We live in hope of a Derek & Susan tour, but outside of the ABB family, not sure what sort of stuff you would want to come over and see. Anyway, great to hear friom you, hope you are both well.

They came back on & played till 23.00, excellent show.

Yeah i enjoyed it too, love it when they play Let There Be Rock. Was a little under the weather though, so off the beer and standing on the raised bit at the back behind the door. Gordon, you probably walked right past me.
