The Ropewalk

Hi Gordon, Great to hear recently that you're back to health, long may it continue. Just picked up tickets for the Ropewalk gig Barton on Humber. Not sure if you've played there before but its one of my favourite venues, very intimate and laid back, can't wait!. All the best, Mike.

Phil Everly

Very very sad news on hearing of his passing a couple of days ago, I'm sure his music had an influence on many of us.

Re: Tommy Emmanuel

Hi Gordon, Glad to see you're a fan of Tommys. I did a workshop with him a while ago (only two turned up!!) and have met him on many occasions, I am sure you would agree he is one of the nicest guys you could wish to meet. Hope his health is a little better now. Regards, Mike.

Mike Waterson

Sadly the death of Mike Waterson has been announced. He had been battling cancer for some time and will be sorely missed.

Hamilton Loomis

Hi all, I was lucky enough to catch Hamilton Loomis in concert again this week at 'Millers' in Kirkby in Ashfield, (great little blues venue). He is an astonishing guitarist from Texas mentored by none other than Bo Diddley. He always uses top musicians from the UK when he comes over including Jamie...

Well done Sue!! One of the times I met Tommy he was wearing a 'Chet' T shirt and he told me how he lived at Chets house for two years, he thought the world of him and was devastated when he died.

Hi Gordon hope you are well. I nicked 'cgp' from Tommy (Emmanuel) you may have noticed he signs the same when you saw my guitar, I asked him what it meant and apparrantly it's 'certified guitar player!' In his case it's because he is a genius, in my case it's because I need certifying!!!. Cheers mate.

Frank Vignola

I'm new to this site although I have been a fan of Gordons for many years so please go easy!. Just thought I'd put forward Frank Vignola as an amazing guitarist as I'm sure Gordon would agree. Met him recently playing alongside the great Tommy Emmanuel and witnessed a very special coupling. His rend...
