This is the one I saw .....
Good that Toyah is still retaining her youthful shape
She still has an abundance of, er, energy!
Plays a mean Telecaster too!
I remember her This is Your Life, what a really lovely couple they are.
And he's never lost his Wimborne accent,and looks even more like a bank manager than ever, despite being ONE OF the greatest guitar players in the world!
That's one of those well known facts I didn't know until recently! Thanks.
MY God VDGG. I'd forgotten them too. Ah well, in a world of pandemic The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other! The first time I saw this title I assumed it must be a Moody Blues album.
Yes indeed on Fripp. Good to know so many people know his stuff. Most acquaintances of mine look at me blankly if I mention him. Question for Fripp lovers. Did he do anything better than 'Larks Tongues' ? Othe Crimson albums are eligible. Lizard with Jon Anderson still ranks highly.
Lizard is just about my favourite Crimso album, I still play it regularly. I love all the early stuff for me in fact, up until he parted company with Pete Sinfield. I did like Discipline with Adrian Belew and Bill Bruford from the 80s.
More bounce to the ounce.
And now for something completely different.
Been a huge VDGG fan since I saw them in 71. Yes .... “we’re all adrift on a sea of blood and the least we can do is wave to each other” - exactly.
Their song “Refugees” from that album still resonates.
I’m probably the only one, but my favourite Crimson album is “In the Wake of Poseidon” - I just think it’s sublime ....
Gorgeous. Walked down the aisle (first time) to this back in 77 .... memories .....
Saw the band at the Talk of the Town 1970, filled me boots that night.
Happy birthday to the one and only Robert William Gary Moore. Another one taken from us to soon and a Brighton boy for years ...
I was here for this gig - it was totally amazing ....
Thanks Dave, a perfect start to the day. As you say, much missed.
Bloody hell, these guitarists keep on coming. I saw Gary Moore at 'Mothers'* in Brum when he was with Skid Row. Memory was he was only about 17. He was clearly stoned, and yet you came away thinking you'd just seen something special. I went out and bought 'Skid' the next morning, but was hugely dsappointed with it and stopped noticing him for while until he made that tribute to Peter Green - another truly great guitarist and my personal favourite from the John Mayall production line.
*Any others on here visit this Midlands mecca? Everyone played this place. It was an upstairs warehouse above a furnirure shop. Eventually closed down for H&S reasons on the spurious grounds that a bunch of stoned hippies smoking weed might cause a fire and kill everyone. Pah. Bloody Snowflakes
So now the trip down memory lane via Birmingham brings me to another great guitarist and a superb key board player. When we saw them at Mothers Jon Lord came down to the bar for a pint while Blackmore played a solo that seemed to last forever. They made some great stuff, but this is a favourite for showcasing the interplay of these two.
PS. Must be played very loud!
Agreed. For me 'Court of the Crimson King' hasn't aged well. but the rest is astonishing. Oh, bloody hell, Chilco. You've got me thinking. Is Lizard my favourite? Like it matters. Bit like the argument about 'greatest guitarist' and all that ****e. Enjoy them all
'morning all. Bit windy here never mind. JJ well up the list of great guitarists.
This not a bad effort.
One of the most amazing gigs I ever saw was Gary Moore playing at his local pub in Kemp Town, The Ranelagh, long known for putting on blues nights. He would occasionally pop down there and just rock up with his band.
As you can imagine, it was something of a step up from the norm. Incredibly powerful and in a room holding less than 100 people.
After he died, I was chatting to my cousin who lived in Brighton and who I hadn’t seen for a number of years. I was telling her of gigs I’d seen when I lived in Stockholm. She said “Ooh, do you like Gary Moore? Wish I’d known, he used to live next door to us and we’d go round there for a chat. He’d often get his guitar out and play us some of the stuff he was working on. Such a nice man ...”
I may have sworn a bit .......
