  1. Funny, as soon as I saw the title of this thread and before I had even opened the page I was going to mention Kingdom Come!
  2. Billy Cox, Geezer Bulter, John Entwistle, Phil Lynott and Roger Glover were the first to make me really notice bass. As far as lesser known or unknown players go, the first person I saw live who really made me go 'wow' was Gordon Rowley of 70s rock band Strife. They were our local-ish 'big' band who almost made it. I loved his playing and he was probably the first and biggest influence to a teenage me. I still love his playing (especially live) all these years later although he has long retired and had poor health. I'm pleased to still be in touch with the two other members of the band. https://www.last.fm/music/Strife/+wiki I'm going to also give a very honourable mention to Mel Schacher of Grand Funk and Pat Daugherty of Black Oak Arkansas, especially for their live work. I've never heard of the vast majotiry of players mentioned in this thread.
  3. And all the ads purporting to be 'name' bands re-forming ... asking for free gear.
  4. There's an Indian guy who does an Elvis tribute called 'Patelvis' ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. I can vouch for the excellence of Doug's work. If I had the money I would buy it in an instant. GLWTS
  6. I was in the same situation a few years ago but made the mistake of joining the band, being swept up in 'the moment' and the enthusiasm of the other members. It wasn't long before it was driving me crazy and I was feeling embarrassed at gigs ... and I left the band. I suppose it depends on how much tolerance you have of her shortcomings as a singer. If it was me, I wouldn't join. I'm looking for a decent band to join but won't join just 'any band' simply for the sake of being in a band.
  7. What a great inspiration he was - I saw him many times after that. I also found a Youtube audience recording of the gig I attended at the Victoria Hall, Hanley ๐Ÿ™‚ I really enjoyed the link you posted btw ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. I'd only been playing guitar a couple of years when I went to my first gig in 1973, It was Rory Gallagher and it really made me feel like giving up. I still have the 90p ticket ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. In My Chair (Quo) Crown Crown (Quo) Blinded by the Light The Needle and the Damage Done Reconstruction Shuffle (Ashton, Gardener and Dyke) Back to Plaque Gums and Roses Bridge of Sighs Plaque Night The Drill is Gone (BB King) (... speaking words of wisdom) Let It Be Samba Pa Teeth (Santana) Brace with the Devil
  10. It's not something I listen to all the time but when the mood takes me I love some loud early Marilyn Manson in the car
  11. You've Lost that Loving Filling The Bay City Molars
  12. +1 to all that. The guitarist in my last band was very proficient at sweep picking and tapping etc but he used it very sparingly and certainly not in every song. by a long way His reasoning was, and I totally agree, that it gets boring to listen to and also detracts from his other playing if all he did was the flashy stuff.
  13. I'd probably really suck at it, but I'll never find out
