  1. Really want this but I have big Spector purchases to save for. Sorry... and glwts!
  2. That WOULD be amazing.... and I did seriously consider it.... but sadly I don't think my chops are up to Peter Cetera's standard on those early Chicago albums!
  3. Tiran Porter with the Doobie Brothers 73 - 76. The music, the basslines, the band members and the fun on the road/in the studio that must have been had! Gene Simmons with KISS from 76 - 78. The music, the huge stages and over the top production, the gear (Spector custom, vintage SVTs and EV cabs), the money and the women.... Ricky Phillips with Styx now. The musicianship, the band members, the songs and the general high quality of the whole shebang....
  4. European tour has been cancelled. Time to get your refunds
  5. Attendees / Gear list 1. MacDaddy - Custom Shukers / Rob Allen Mouse / Peavey Vypyr VIP III 2. Binky Bass - Binky 10 string, USA Conklin 8 string, ACG 9 string, 3 x ACG 6 strings, Reiver 7 string (geeeetar), GR Bass Dual 1400 & GR Bass AT410+, Helix LT, Pinegrove straps, Richter straps etc. 3. Cetera - Spector (USA NS2 & NS2X, Euro Classic, Euro LX (w/Haz),Euro 'Rachel Bolan', Pulse II ) Wal Mk1 'Geddy Lee', Fender FSR PJ with East pre, Hamer Impact, Pedulla Buzz 4 fretless and maybe Jackson TBird, GK400RB, GK Legacy 800 & Tech21 VT500 Heads, Genz Benz Neox212 cab.
  6. Just had a weekend working backstage at Hyde Park BST Festival (Friday & Sunday). Elton John and The Eagles were both fantastic, as were the Wandering Hearts. Robert Plant/Alison Krauss were pretty good too and a new act called Juanita Euka had some great bass/drums grooves happening....
  7. Fantastic amp! LOVE mine....! GLWTS!
  8. A great theatre gig at Wimborne Tivoli on Friday night with our 'big' production (lasers, pyro, video screens etc). By all accounts the sound was excellent and visually we nailed it. We got a fantastic audience response and the European agents who had flown in to see the show were suitably impressed. Everything crossed for a Belgium, Holland & Germany tour at some point next year! Woo!
  9. My Wife has no input into what I spend my money on. Job done.
  10. Yeah, sorry about that.... it's an involuntary reflex I have Nothing personal! lol! 🤣
  11. Ah yes, Wayne Ellis.... lovely bloke. I too always struggle with his use of a Stingray. As much because of the clicky hi-fi tone he gets from it as the way it looks in a Lizzy tribute. Speaking as someone who did a tribute for 25 years and paid 100% attention to detail that really bothered me. 'Tribute snob' that I am....
  12. As with many purchases in life I've always found the middle ground build/pricing the most rewarding and best quality/value for money. I'd happily take a Jap Fender over a US one any day. Same with a mid level Epiphone over a Gibson. Some of the better Squiers are awesome too.... As much as I love my US Spectors (all bought used) I'm more than happy with my many Spector Euro builds as well.....
  13. KISS at Download on Friday night. Backstage guest parking and a wander through to stand in front of the stage. I'll be turning up at 8.30 and leaving at 11pm. No standing in a field for hours with the great unwashed for me.
  14. THIS ^^^^^^^ Give me the musicality, creativity, melody and structural arrangements of the bass playing of Peter Cetera (Chicago), Tiran Porter (Doobie Bros), Rutger Gunnarsson (ABBA), Joe Puerta (Ambrosia), Dee Murray (Elton John), John Deacon (Queen), Dave Hope (Kansas), Martin Tiefensee (Lake), Paul Goddard (Atlanta Rhythm Section), Del Palmer (Kate Bush), David Paton (Pilot/Alan Parsons etc) and many others of that period.... over most stuff since.
  15. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  16. Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter also wore them 'live' with the Doobie Brothers..... but then he also sat down on a stool.... lol!
  17. Van Halen (DLR era) could have made one good double album out of all their material. Too many cover versions and average songs on overly short albums.
  18. I love the sound of bagpipes (played well), particularly if the sound is floating across a valley/loch or the Edinburgh skyline.....
  19. The new 'Lake' album. The surviving original 70's members have reformed and are currently recording a new album, due for Dec release! Also, the new Journey album...... and the new Chicago album, both ready for release apparently...
  20. .....and their tours "World Tour".... despite not leaving North America....
  21. Sure, though I don't have anything US built in the last 10 years (in since Korg took over)....
