AC/DC, the band that made me want to play guitar.
The greatest rhythm guitar player ever and a songwriter beyond compare. Malcolm Young is forever a legend. pic.twitter.com/FdNfx1tRdE

Comments Off on Dammit, not Rick Parfitt
After The Damned, but just ahead of AC/DC, Status Quo are one of the bands I’ve seen the most times live. Great live band. Great British rock.

Comments Off on Seriously, too soon
Trying to watch the Larry Sanders show on BBC television in the 90’s was a pain; maybe it’d be on at 11 pm, maybe it’d be mid-night, maybe they wouldn’t show it at all for a couple of weeks, maybe they would skip an episode.
But Garry Shandling was great as the bitter vain narcissistic, shallow, paranoid Larry Sanders in a send up of the late night TV we might not have had in the U.K, but could still appreciate. Larry Sanders and Duckman, two great shows that paved the way for so much of what we take for granted now. And Garry Shandling was only 66, damnit. Too soon.

Comments Off on James Last
I’ve never listened to James Last (till now), but thirty plus years ago sat outside college in a car with a drummer messing around with a tape recorder we recorded a tribute song to James Last as Simon Last, because that’s what you do when you’re a teenager in a band but don’t have the whole band there. Still have that tape somewhere, pen drumming and vocal guitar effects and fake crowd noises and all.
If we’d become famous that song could have been re-released today as a tribute to James Last.

Never watched Coronation Street, so my only knowledge of Deidre (Anne Kirkbride) comes from the classic Toy Dolls tune…
