Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers concert on tonight at 9pm. It was also on a couple of months or so, well worth a watch though. (Sky Arts).

 

Such a good band.

Mike Campbell is superb, very much overlooked.

 

I've just mistakenly watched the Radiohead gig on Sky Arts. I've got quite a few of their albums but I'm glad I've never gone to see them live, hell they're dull. They seem to have persuaded audiences that 'garage jams' and dicking about with old gear with loads of patch cables sprouting from it is edgey.

I watched the Radiohead gig too, well for about 20 mins which was all I could manage. Let’s just say it’s not my kinda thing and I’ll stop there.

just watched the "Punk" program, how fat has John Lydon got? I barely recognised him, he's huge, can't say I enjoyed it that much, Dave Vanian came across OK, but using the isolated Bass track on the Pistols doing God Save the Queen at the Winter Gardens was a bit below the belt

 

He probably got free Country Life butter for the rest of life when he did those TV ads for them a few years back.

🙄 Radiohead’s 2017 Glastonbury spot is, IMO, probably the best televised gig I’ve ever seen.

Agreed - Mike Campbell is one of my favourite guitar players. (could still have done without Stevie Nicks though).

Not seen it yet as I have it recorded.

 

Stop Draggin My Heart Around is a cracking track by Tom and Stevie.

That is a great song, and SN is okay on it. Should have left it there though rather than staying on with the band for some other wailing. 😆

On Sky Arts now, Chic Live in France 2013. Followed later by Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar festival 2019 at 17.50, and then The Story of Trojan Records at 21.00. (Some of these may have previously been shown.)

Those butter ads, always brings me back to these misfits. :D (contains some grown up words btw)

I caught the last half of this. Superb. Really hope it will be shown again soon.

It was on a few months ago so I’m guessing it will be repeated, might be worth setting a reminder for it if you can, another one to keep an eye out for that you might like is , Bob Marley- catch a fire , there’s some great old footage on that one 🙂

Enjoyed watching Steve Miller live at Austin City Limits , always liked his music ,and he played all the great hits .

Mystified by the lack of bass player ( probably the keys player playing bass lines ) until Mr Renham ( from Renham Industries ) played a Stingray 5 on Livin in the USA .

I was onstage with SMB at Hammersmith in 1983 when their soundcheck was called. Gerald Johnson still hadn’t arrived and I was plucking up the courage to ask to stand in... till I realised he was a southpaw😕

Over the weekend I noticed Steve Gadd, Anthony Jackson and Richard Tee were part of the band backing a couple of singers on an open air gig.

 

It's up on iPlayer.

The programme preceding it was excellent as well Simon & Garfunkel: The Harmony Game which is also up on iPlayer.
