Actually while I'm on here. I thought you london peaches might like to know I've just launched a food website.
So when you get bored with this board (or you're hungry) on here go visit.
www.foodepedia.co.uk


The site made me hungry. Nice to see some reviews of Mexican restaurants. These are sadly normally missed and believe me there are so many poor ones out there as I've found out. Good ones too though. Just not as many.

Just a quick note to let everyone know who was going to see Skinny Molly tonight that according to the promoters web site (www.feenstra.co.uk) this gig has been canceled. The one tomorrow night is on though. I'm off to see Medicine hat then though.

Saw Joe B on Wednesday at Colston Hall, Bristol. Have a couple of CDs and was expecting great things. The start of the show was dominated by tedious heavy riffing, but after about 30 mins he really got into the bluesy stuff and was ace. He's a bit of a poser though. Loved the support act Imelda May, but I had her CD before that and would recommend it if you like a bit of retro rockabilly/bluesy jazzy vocals (great bassist).

Jim - I don't think Joe takes himself 100% seriously. He is a very modest guy. He usually knows exactly how many people have bought tickets and are in the venue and I think he appreciates his fans.

Colin - I got tickets. I don't know the RAH that well as a music venue and. rightly or wrongly, I didn't fancy the Arena as it's not tiered. Maybe I should have gone for Stalls close to the stage but I got front row seats in a Box near the stage.

It's the Bank Holiday Monday so may make a day of it!

Gordon, my tickets are in the Stalls close to the stage, Block M - Row 5, just in front of and to the right of the stage, your Box may be just behind me

Actually, I didn't realise you could get seats in a box, I thought they were reserved for VIP packages / Corporate bookings where you have to book the whole box. Perhaps for artists such as Joe (no offence but I mean as opposed to the likes of EC) they allow some of them to be booked on an individual seat basis.

Anyway, as it is a Bank Holiday, Janet and I intend to make a day of it too. Have'nt decided what we will do yet, probably visit some historical site / museum during the day and grab a bite to eat somewhere.

I think that boxes generally have private owners or debenture holders (probably Proms-types!) who may choose to release them for certain events.

As I say, I can count the number of music events I've been to at the RAH on one finger and don't really know the best seats.

The attached, posted on the JB website, is ultra informative.

yeah he strikes all the right rock poses!
I love that bit where he tells the audience to shut up when he holds that note during "asking around for you"

Saw Joe on last Sunday evening in Manchester, a show which was resheduled from the previous week due to JB having a serious bout of flu. This is the third time I have seen him this year and I have to tell you it was the best of the 3 by a long way. It was a sold out show (2300), our first Joe gig this year he was playing to about 350-400, in Liverpool 6 months later he played to around 500+. To make it to the RAH next year is one great achievement. The band he has got around are the best guys he has played with and really bring out the best in Joe. I love his 100% commitment to the fans and never in my opinion plays a bad gig. Wish I could make it to the RAH in May.

Thanks Colin. I'll pick up some tix tomorrow.

If anyone is interested, my band The Snakeoil Rattlers is playing Thursday next week in Kingston (4th Dec) if anyone's interested. We're performing with 3 other bands as part of the annual Ram Jam Christmas piss-up gig and expect a swap in members for a few numbers. It's only a quid to get in. It's at the Ram Jam club behind the Grey Horse
46 Richmond Road. Fun starts at 8pm.

Funny how things work out - I just bought One From the Road deluxe version in HMV's sale last weekend and was wondering what the latest incarnation was. I have the Freebird DVD which has a 90's concert on which is pretty good, but I'm unconvinced by the taped vocals on Freebird - didn't work for me - do they still do that? Then looked at the line up and saw only two of the seven originals would be there, but then thought I was being hypocritical with my love for the current ABB line up, so I now have a ticket. As it's a Sunday - see you in the Pillars at 1pm? Seriously though, nearer the time if we (Barry?) check to see if there's any Sunday afternoon music going on, we could make a day of it.

I got a ticket this morning too ... not too sure how I'm going to get there yet ... can't really see a viable alternative to driving as trains on a Sunday are few and far between so I will probably only be going for a couple of brews and a bite to eat before hand.

We can discuss this more when we meet in a couple of weeks for the Who gig Jim

Nothing new! Just a wee bump to keep the profile up and to say that I'm really looking forward to forward to seeing The Who in a small venue(2350 seat Indigo2) tomorrow with Colin. Also praying that the pound strengthens before those Beacon tix go on sale!!!!

Last Beacon (2007) there were almost $2 per 1 ... now at $1-40 per 1 it is going to be an even more expensive trip ...

But I do not want to miss out on the 40th anniversary so it will cost what it costs ...

Looking forward to the Who too Jim ... see you at about 5pm tomorrow

WHOO-HOO-WHO

The Who were awesome last night ... I wasn't sure Daltrey would still have the voice ... but he has ... and Townshend's guitarmanship was as good as ever ... I didn't realise that they jammed as much as they did ... perhaps it was because all of the Who concerts that I had previously attended were stadium venues and not so intimate as seeing them here in a 2000 seat night club ... made it much more cosy ... "just like the old days - except we ain't doin' no effin' requests" Townshend quipped.

There will never be another Keith Moon ... but Zak Starkey has to be as close as you will get ... exact same style of playing ... but without the madness (LOL)

The other backing musicians were all very able also ... Pino Palladino on Bass, Simon Townshend (Pete's brother) on Rhythm Guitar and John Bundrick on Keys ... all did an excellent job.

I'm not so sure I would want to go to a big outdoor arena anymore ... but if you get the chance for such an intimate gig as this then make sure you don't miss it ... best gig of the year for me ... and that includes some memorable contenders (Young / Eagles / Trower / Little Feat / Stills / Winwood)

The set list:

Can't Explain
The Seeker
Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere
Fragments
Who Are You
Behind Blue Eyes
Tattoo
Sister Disco
Baba O'Riley
Eminence Front
5:15
Love Reign O'er Me
Won't Get Fooled Again
My Generation

Encore:
Pinball Wizard
Amazing Journey/Sparks
See Me, Feel Me
Listening to You


With many thanks to Jim for getting me the ticket ... great night mate and I look forward to the next time!!!

Good report, Harvey. My history with seeing The Who in concert is an interesting being here in Cincinnati, of course, but I've always loved them. Good to hear some Quadrophenia thrown in as I'd rather hear that than the "Tommy" stuff, frankly, as it was the better album. Does Pete play "Pure and Easy" anymore?? Love that song.

Sounds like fun.

We were too quick out of the building, Colin. we missed a song - Tea & Theatre from the "new" album - an acoustic duo usually, and I would much rather leave with the memory of the power of the Tommy finale.

Anyway, some news on the gig front for UK punters - Jeff Beck (with Tal Wilkenfield on Bass )
Wed 24th Jun 2009 Dome (Brighton)
Thu 25th Jun 2009 Symphony Hall (Birmingham)
Sat 27th Jun 2009 Apollo (Manchester)
Tue 30th Jun 2009 Hall (Belfast)
Fri 03rd Jul 2009 GuildHall (Southampton)
Sat 04th Jul 2009 Royal Albert Hall (London)
Bristol date advertised in some magazines has been cancelled

James McMurty?? Not on my radar, so just listened to a 2-minute blast and my immediate reference point was Drive By Truckers so might just pop down to the Polish Club in Bristol on 31 Jan - and for the rest of the UK -

2/01 Glasgow, UK Oran Mor (Celtic Connections Festival)
2/02 Belfast, IE Errigle Inn
2/04 Leeds, UK Brudenell Social Club
2/05 Newcastle, UK The Cluny
2/06 Nottingham, UK The Maze
