  1. From Musicfestnews.com on Facebook
  2. I use a cut off from an extra-thick Minky Sponge as it is just the right height to fit under my Jazz bass strings. But you can use anything, didn't Tony Levin use a nappy during the recording of Don't Give Up with Peter Gabriel. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Extra-Thick-Sponge-Wipes/dp/B009R0HI86/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=extra+thick+minky+sponge&qid=1620504618&sr=8-1
  3. That's just terrible. Wishing him a successful recovery. Thank goodness for the wonderful NHS.
  4. Thanks for that, explains why I sometimes think the B string on the quitar is out of tune when the tuner says no.
  5. That’s sad news. Such a fantastic drummer and lyricist, and an inspiration. Shocked. Such a difficult cancer to treat. If anyone wants to support research have a look at https://www.thebraintumourcharity.org/
  6. We did Slade Merry Christmas last night. I was a bit loathe to do it again after last year as it can be a bit plodding if the tempo and drums aren’t right. But when those are spot on, it’s a fantastic bass line to play. And everyone loved it.

  8. Seems to be quite a few new bands on Spotify’s Rock List... as always rumours of Rock’s death seem greatly exaggerated. Didn’t the Queen film do well last year. Can’t imagine it was all due to the silver’s nostalgia.
  9. I'm posting this on behalf of a friend: Skylark is a 4-piece band : singer, trumpet, keyboard and double bass. Due to illness, our bass is no longer able to play so we would like to find a replacement. The music we play is mainly from 1910 - 1960 : Hoagy Carmichael, Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin etc. but also some tango and bossa nova. It is a very low pressure (unpaid) group, performing ~6 times a year in residential homes in the winter and fund raising for country churches in summer. We also occasionally perform at parties, barbecues etc. Let me know if you are interested and I will pass on their details.
  10. I like that each program has a slightly different viewpoint suggesting that the presenter had real input: Stewart Copeland's excitement in playing with other drummers; Tina Weymouth’s bass is a frequency (could have a title for a Talking Heads or Laurie Anderson song); and Lenny Kaye’s quest for new sounds with a poetic loop at the end.
  11. Ok, so lots of options. Now super-excited.
  12. Here's a NAMM demo. I'm both excited about it but wondering whether I'd want to be tied to Geddy's EQ settings that are inbuilt?
  13. A bit weird to see Geddy in the Guardian. Like they've finally allowed in from the cold which is a bit ironic given Neil has stopped drumming. What are your favourites ? https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/dec/24/geddy-lee-on-rush-greatest-songs
  14. Goes with their need to always be progressive. Likewise, I tried and tried with the more recent "back on form" albums as I've loved nearly every album with the exception of Presto. I like the fact that they've moved on and not taken me with them rather than have fourteen repeats of earlier re-incarnations.
