I seem to recall that there is a "Slug & Lettuce" bar there that Jan and I had a snack and a drink in that wasn't too bad ... well by London standards that is ...

Hope you all have a great time ... look forward to seeing you at Warren's gig in a couple of weeks ...

Sorry you can't make it this time Colin, see you in a couple of weeks. I'm going to try and get to the 02 for about 3ish if possible. Martyn, let me know which free shows you and Mel will be attending and I will try and meet up with you both.

I'm off to see Blackberry Smoke at Manchester Academy 1 tonight with a couple of friends, so need to get home by midnight for some beauty sleep as my train is at 10.30 in the morning from Warrington Bank Quay.

Mike, the 2 bands Mel and I want to see are on in the Brooklyn Bowl between 12oclock and 3.30 so you probably wont be there by then. I would also like to see Derek and Susan Questions and answer session which is on between 4.30 and 5.15 but dont know at which venue. We will be milling around the Brooklyn Bowl and the entrance so we should see you around some time. I think ive got your mobile no so will ring you after 3.30. Mart.

Such a brilliant, if not superb gig last night. The band certainty did Joe Cocker proud. Nice to spend the afternoon with Martyn and Mel. Alan, sorry I didn't meet up with you at the venue, hope you enjoyed the gig. Nice to briefly chat with Darren and Gordon. Colin, you missed a great days entertainment. The Q &A with Derek and Susan was a highlight, such a down to earth couple. See you all in two weeks for Warrens show in Lomdon.

Good to see you too, Mike, and Marytn and Mel.

I only got to the O2 at 7 so missed out on all the (free) daytime fun. I'll watch out for The Boom Band!!

I'd be quite happy if all gigs were at the IndigO2 - comfy seats, great view and it's not a bad journey for me. Like a more comfortable, more convenient Shepherds Bush Empire with much better sound!

I really enjoyed the show. I thought the overall standard was so high that there was fewer standout moments. The Beatles' Something was a surprise and so true to the original that it fell a bit flat in the room. The Letter was good and, when Matt Schofield didn't appear at that point, I knew he wouldn't!

I don't follow their setlists so didn't expect Bird On The Wire but Susan and back-ups breathed new life into a bit of an old dirge.

The highlight for me was Midnight In Harlem, (a) because it's still their best song and (b) the extended instrumental intro gets better and better.

The new song I Want More seemed a bit routine until it broke out into a great instrumental coda led by Kofi on Flute.

I feared they would tackle With A Little Help From My Friends only because it meant Susan taking on "that" scream which was quite painful! She was on top form all night and I couldn't fault her vocals but I wish she had spared us that moment!

Derek was a bit overshadowed by his missus, I thought. He seemed very restrained in the second set especially with few solos. What he did was still top notch, of course. I found myself wondering if I would go to see this band without D & S and I think it would still be a hell of an outfit. It was fascinating to watch the drummers and everyone else was right on top of their jobs.

Great evening's entertainment. Looking forward to the new album now which could be their mainstream breakthrough if they can capture their live energy on tape in the studio.

Hi guys sorry I missed most of you, Martin and Mel the only people I knew that I bumped into. We were downstairs among the rabble and suspect most of you were up the stairs. Won't catch you at the warren gig because my son lives in Holland these days and I managed to wangle a trip to Amsterdam to coincide with his gig there. Realy enjoyed tttb and the other acts I managed to catch and I'll see you next time

You'll be lucky, Colin! It's all Civil Service departments and office buildings around there. Not at all lively.

I'll look at some of my pub guides but one of the watering holes in Whitehall - Westminster is the nearest Tube station anyway - may be best.

Some classic shots there Al ... you certainly know how to capture Derek and Susan's character ...

I have a spare ticket for Warren's show on Saturday (Jim Rudge can't make it) ... so let me know if anyone is interested ... Row F

Jan and I are visiting the Celtic Exhibition at the British Museum in the afternoon and will travel down from there - arriving at Westminster Tube around 5pm.

There is a pub almost next door to Westminster tube station on Bridge St - St Stephen's Tavern - so that might be a convenient place to meet up. Haven't been in there for years but it used to do a decent pint and pub grub.

Any of you London geezers got any other knowledge of the local boozers?

As I thought, the immediate surroundings of the venue are a parched wasteland.

There is St Stephen's Tavern as mentioned by Colin, the Red Lion around the corner in Whitehall and the Westminster Arms.

This is in Storey's Gate which runs between the QEII Centre and Central Hall, across Parliament Square. It's a bit away from the tourist drag so may be quieter but it seems to have a very small bar area.

I've got no preference - all three are parliamentary watering-holes so don't expect pool tables, juke boxes and wall-to-wall sports tv!

Thanks for the input Gordon ... I have been in the Red Lion before and it is good but the bar is really small ... as is the Westminster Arms ...

I am travelling down South tomorrow for a works re-union in Reading ... so unless anyone has any real objections ... as it is the closest to the Westminster Tube I intend to be in St Stephen's Tavern around 5pm or so on Saturday ... my phone number is still the same if you want to contact me ... hope to see y'all there ...

Hi Colin, I'll be there, and I am assuming Martyn and Mel and possibly Gordon will too.

Hi Martyn, hope you get this before this evening. Meeting up with Colin in the St. Stephens Tavern. Is this ok with you and Mel or are you drinking elsewhere.

Hi Darren, nice to catch with you last night before the gig, don't blame you for darting off after the show to make your coach home.
