Hi G,

Love to you and Hil,

Re: My birthday coming up!

Hi Tom

I was 60 this year (8 April) and Birthdays certainly come around quicker the older you get!

By the way many thanks for your kind wishes about Dad - we both really appreciated them.

Roger :D

Re: Visitation - Fear of the Dark

Hi Diffidus,

Visitation is a great track, with or without the drums of Simon Phillips. Electric guitar solos don't come much better than Gordon's on this track.

Stanley Drew RIP

It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that my Dad aka Stan passed away in Warwick Hospital last month. What seemed like a straightforward problem quickly became more serious and there was little that could be done for him. As my Uncle Ron said, "Stan was a man who rose above the hand...

Terribly sad news. Sometimes life can seem very unfair. Our sincere condolences to Jamie's wife and son and to Gordon and Hilary, and their family.

Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Oldbones, The 801 Live album was released in 1976, with Listen Now following in 1977. There was a tour to promote Listen Now with an 801 mark II band. I saw them play at Birmingham Town Hall and Phil Manzanera was superb, his only guitar being a late 50s Les Paul goldtop loaned to him by Lol Creme. ...

Oldbones,

Nice to find another Manzanera fan on the forum. Are you referring to the 801 Live album with Simon Phillips and Brian Eno?

Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Oldbones, Very true - my Tele copy was bought as a project guitar and I'd have been pleased if for £39 I'd just had a useable body and pick ups! As regards the Chord this video might interest you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64JWNC72ZiA There is a guitar shop in Warwick where the owner has been ...

Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Oldbones, I have a Harrier Mistral, which cost £39.99 from ebay. It's a Tele copy. Although this guitar isn't perfect by any means, what it has done has made me appreciate the Tele as a guitar - very simple design, comfortable to play and some great tones too! I have fitted a Trev Wilkinson bridge a...

Re: Roland vs Blackstar

Just to let you all know that I bought a Microcube GX quite recently, s/h, but in as new condition for £75. This and the fact that it runs on batteries swayed me towards the Roland in the end. Very impressed so far, but still a lot to explore.

Thanks to all for the advice,

Roger
