Ooh! I saw a Linda on her only (?) UK tour that year …fantastic backing band. 

Agreed Mick. I loved her 70’s albums, and even the Nelson Riddle stuff too to a certain extent. 

Wonderful voice.

Stereophonics on BBC2 at moment, a gig from Cardiff, really good, thoroughly enjoying it.

I remember seeing them supporting the Who in the 90s. ‘They’ll never amount to anything’ I confidently told my wife 😂

Just watching it on iPlayer, not sure if it’s my dodgy eyes but Rich Jones looks like he’s got two SVT’s and two Helix rack units in a rack next to his two Ampeg 8x10’s

Yep I did think he must have looked terribly old fashioned with his dinosaur rig to some - but I bet he doesn’t give a hoot, and neither do I, I’d love to play through a rig like that.

I went to that show last night. Was on Richards side and very jealous of the rig!!

 

wouldn’t fancy trying to get it in the boot though!!!

 

the IPlayer coverage is good, but it was 100 times better in person

This popped up on YouTube a few days ago (free). Although it doesn't go back and cover the pioneers and greats from the early days, it's still a good documentary about film composers and the work they do.

A load of Rolling Stones stuff tonight (2/7/22) on BBC2.

 

A new four part series begins at 9.30pm, ‘My life as a Rolling Stone’. Looks like each

episode features a different band member ( including Charlie), starting tonight

with Mick Jagger.

 

Following this is at 10.30pm is a film of a 2015 concert at The Fonda Theatre in Hollywood 

which features the band playing their album ‘Sticky Fingers’ in its entirety.

 

Then at 11.55pm there’s another showing of the 1995 film ‘Totally Stripped’.

Excludes Bill Wyman, includes Ronnie Wood.

Even though Wyman has more Stones years if you exclude the years when they effectively became a legacy act.

Probably on BBC Sounds. Bono on Desert Island Discs.

 

I'm not a big fan of U2 or Bono but I actually quite enjoyed the bits I caught (I was at work, in and out the van).

I'll try and listen to all of it at some point.

Recorded!

 

I tried to watch it earlier...

 

Jeez! doddery old blokes running around in ridiculous clothes making every cliched "rock" pose ever invented.

 

I thought that I had accidentally recorded Spinal Tap2 when I saw the polystyrene bricks and Pagodas....Bruce Dickenson in a Japanese style top knot .WTF?
