  1. Out of your depth.

    Currently learning War Pigs. I'll definitely be improvising over the guitar solo. Never been able to play Immigrant song chorus at correct speed without blurring the notes either.
  2. Pat Torpey RIP

    I must say he looked pretty frail on their recent tour but it's still a bit of a shock, RIP Mr Torpey.
  3. Mark Knopfler's solo albums

    No need to be shy, if you've done it, flaunt it. I have to be in the mood but I do like a bit of Knopfler on occasion.
  4. Noel Redding

    I saw that line up at an Alexis Korner memorial gig at Buxton Opera House. It was all a bit thrown together and approximate at times but they got through it!
  5. Either Woodstock or the Isle of Wight one where the Doors played.
  6. As the majority of those are tributes to acts that are now dead they certainly arent taking gigs from the originals that's for sure.
  7. 'Your' band

    Saw them in 87 in a tiny club in Nottingham, Tyla was off his tits half the gig even then. Think he did some songs completely lying down. Happy days...
  8. Not in same league musically as Rob 'no pens' Palmer but I have had a similar sort of journey, albeit at a rather more mundane pub level. I'm pickier about what sort of projects I get involved in and the players involved. I have no qualms in walking away if they don't pan out quite as expected. If this means doing fewer gigs and less spare cash around then so be it. I have other interests so its easy for me to simply spend more time doing other non bass related things when I'm between bands.
  9. Deep Purple in concert

    After the changeing of the guard on guitar and the unleashed exhuberence of Perperndicular I think the follow up Abandon got a bit short changed and underappreciated. There are some very good tunes on it.
  10. Who are you seeing live next?

    Seeing Mr Big (and hopefully some of The Answer if I get there in time) tonight then off to Brum to see Europe and Deep Purple tomorrow.
  11. Trace Elliot - talk to me

    [quote name='gjones' timestamp='1509002725' post='3395859'] I played a gig,through one of these a while ago. It sounded epc with my Precision and they are cheap as chips secondhand. I didn't attempt to pick it up but I suspect it's very heavy. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqBXH8pWct4[/media] [/quote] One of these, coupled with a 2x10 ext cab (not trace) has been my gigging rig for years. I expect a 2x10 Trace combo with a 1x15 ext cab would sound much the same though. I injured my back at work years ago but still manage to haul the combo in and out of the car to gigs. Consider it character building Actually the 2x10 SWR ext cab isn't a lot lighter than the Trace combo.
  12. 20 Greatest British Rock Bands

    They are just trying to cover as many genres as possible but keeping it to 20 total as typical cliched online lists go, hence they have Zep so can't have Deep Purple, they have Floyd so can't have Genesis or Yes. It's all pretty pointless.
  13. High End Cables

    One thing I do like about the Fender cloth covered one that someone bought for me and I've been using for several trouble free years is that because of the covering it naturally 'wants' to curl in a way when it's being put away that makes it very difficult to twist or create hairpin bends in yet it unfolds and doesnt create loops when in use. I'm sure this has contributed to its longevity.
  14. Who are you seeing live next?

    [quote name='Heathy' timestamp='1509987243' post='3403062'] Von Hertzen Brothers next Thursday. [/quote] Saw them last night. Make sure you are up to speed with the new album, they are playing a lot of it.
  15. Later with Joolz last night

    Saw Von Hertzen Brothers last night, great show. Exactly the sort of thing Jools should have on to pep things up while they are in the country. Never happen of course.
