Hi Gordon Very much appreciated the concert last night as always, and especially for 'Sultan4swing' to be able to get to say hello....

Gordon's August notes comment on Fylde

Gordon, Interested in your comment re the Fylde, 'which still played well after 5 years'...... Please correct me but the comment gave the impression that it was almost a surprise that this should be so ??? Surprised me because a guitarist of your stature particularly, and anyone else who has long gu...

Paul Simon's last tour

Sad to see this is the last tour of this iconic singer/songwriter.... who to many of us 'oldies' , was the epitomy of the 60's folk movement, when songs actually said something ... !!!!! Even sadder, and for me a cruel twist of timing, is that under any other circumstances, I would have got to this ...

Sound balancing at concerts - a personal bug-bear

Interested to know if this is an issue to other contributors.... Several times recently I 've paid good money to hear good bands, and it's been spoiled by so-called 'professional' sound engineers. It seems that these guys only interpret dials/sliders on their consul to produce the balance and don't ...

She is doing a recital at Binham Priory on 18 August - tickets GBP18.... available via the Binham we...

Re: Chepstow Drill Hall Concert - 26 April

Hi Steve... Looks like , by coincidence, you and I were at the same GG concert in Cheltenham - in 1989? (it was my home for some 47 years, and then 12 years in the FOD).. It was held in an anti-room. And like you - I was introduced to GG music thru 'Fear of the Dark', 'Perilous Journey'...... and 'P...
