  1. Heard 'Ball And Chain', the new single by The Who, a couple of times over the weekend (on Radio Caroline). Very disappointing - and I've been a fan of the Who since 1965 when I first heard 'Can't Explain''. Chris
  2. Favourite Yes Album? 'Yes' from 1969 - Love Pete Banks guitar work and his interplay with Chris Squire, Tony Kaye and Bill Bruford. 'Every Little Thing' and 'I See You' still give me goose-bumps. Runners-up would be 'Time And A Word' and 'The Yes Album'. Nothing else worked for me until 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' Chris
  3. Radio Caroline (648 Medium Wave) - "Don't Believe A Word" by Thin Lizzy. Caroline played "One Thing Leads To Another" by Fixx earlier today. Can't get it out of my head now. Chris
  4. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  5. John Entwistle - my inspiration, and my bass muse. 'My Generation' and 'Call Me Lightning' - contain the definitive bass solos. That sums it up for me. Chris (Chezz55)
  6. I agree 100% with Loz196. I've been playing 'ham-fisted' bass in bands since 1968. Had a few 'Bouquets and Brickbats' over the years ....... but more importantly I thoroughly enjoy playing bass guitar, and that's good enough for me. Chris
  7. Just taken delivery of an EHX NanoPOG from Stu (bluepigbass). Seamless transaction, prompt communications and goods were very well packed. No problems here. Chris
  8. I was there as well - and I've still got an unused Deep Purple sticker from the event. IIRC the support band were called 'Highway'

  12. Been using a Draper collapsible sack truck for over 10 years - it's moved Trace Elliot combos, Ampeg 4x10s, TC cabs, Barefaced cabs, Mesa PowerHouse cabs, MarkBass combo and cab together, various PAs and keyboard amps. Had casters and tried dollies - the sack truck wins everytime for me. Chris
