  1. I agree with that. Rush always blew me away live, such a pleasure to watch. You look at them and you know they're having fun. In my eyes Lifeson is one of the most underrated guitar players of all time. I made the mistake myself on the journey to see them for the first time. I told my mate "The drummer is possibly the best around, bassist is also one of the best of all time but the guitarist is so so". After seeing them I thought "My god that guys good", it amazed me how good he actually was.
  2. Just to point out that Rush have played the UK a number of times and sold out most concerts. Rush have always had a good underground following. A lot of people in the UK who have Floyd in the collection will probably have a Rush album. First time I listened to Rush was by a Floyd freak and I agree with the art rock reference. In my view though they are not better than Floyd album-wise but the drummer and the bassist of Rush blow the drummer and the bassist of Floyd out of the water. Alex isn't that bad a guitarist as well. They are a underrated band and should be installed in the Rock N Roll hall of fame. Are they on par with Zeppelin though, not in my view but they are still a great act.
  3. Oh I'm not saying people wouldn't like it being Roxy Music. I mean it in context that after all this hype about a band reforming that's similar to Zeppelin, it turns out to be them. I'm going with the person who mentioned The Kinks but would absolutely love if it was Pink Floyd (minus Rick, R.I.P) with Roger back. Although there is only one band who I do wish to see live again and that is Zeppelin. To prove I wasn't dreaming at the 02 and they were that good.
  4. Then it can't be them, so in terms of being a supergroup like Zeppelin then it has to be Floyd. There is no one else really that come close to Zeppelin in terms of reforming. It better not be Roxy Music that's for sure.
  5. The Specials are reforming but I doubt it would be them. I would stick my money on The Stone Roses or at the back of my mind for some reason Guns N Roses with Slash, Duff & Izzy. Without Adler though (Who is quite messed up unfortunately) it wouldn't be the Appetite guns band. Still place all my bets on The Stone Roses who would've been the next best thing if not for their manager. Their debut album is one of the best debut albums I've ever heard.
  6. Nice to hear and here's wishing they all get one in time. Especially a posthumous one for arguably the greatest drummer in rock.
  7. You're welcome NineLives, thanks for all the piccies of Robert and it's amazing that he paid his own way to that concert to perform.
  8. I am thinking it would be Porthcawl because they had these dinosaur statues as well outside their fairground park which scared the hell out of me. I wouldn't go in where the dinosaurs were, too frightened.
  9. God, I envy you going to that benefit. I've searched everywhere on the net to see if I could find Roberts version of it. To do that benefit for Arthur showed how nice he is.
  10. Just come back from there, quite a good turnout too. Regarding "Blue Christmas", he did ask Ruth to play it for the Queen of Merthyr Tydfil. It was his chosen song and talked about when he met Elvis. He said that he met Elvis in 1973 at the LA Forum and he wondered why Led Zeppelin were selling more tickets than himself. Robert said that Elvis had too many people around him to know much about what was happening in the world. Robert also said that Peter Grant tripped when they met and landed on Elvis's dad. During the Elvis talk which he said lasted one and half hours, they mentioned soundchecks. Robert said that Elvis asked what they did and Jimmy replied that only the singer would have one and he would sing your songs. Elvis asked which one and Robert replied "Love Me". Robert then said that when he was leaving, Elvis swung around a corner and started singing the intro and then they both dueted before Robert left. Robert also talked about his son playing for Inter Cardiff (A football team) which I never knew. He also mentioned how he went to Porthcawl in his younger days. The question was asked about reforming the greatest band to ever live and Robert replied that he keeps in touch with Jimmy but he is with an American woman (Miss Krauss) now and is quite happy. He also said that they are now doing there own things but as he said are keeping in touch from time to time. He referred to Zeppeln as "The other band" Most of the music played was Christmas themed but Black Dog got it's way on there. He simply is one of the nicest people in music.
  11. It was once the biggest holiday place in Britain during those days. You couldn't move on the beach due to the holidaymakers. Nowadays, you would rarely see around 30 people on the beach in the middle of the summer, I blame Florida. I will report on what happens and what he's down here for. I know they are not going to ask the question regarding what everyone wants to know but I'm still shocked that he's coming to Barry. Now if we only could get Jonesy, Jimmy and Bonham Jr appearing. Barry Island would be set in stone in rock history. Anyway, good of Robert to come to what is a great little town. Maybe Ruth could get him to do a rendition of "Old Man" by Love, one of my fave songs. I know it's one of his.
  12. I was fortunate to witness the band at the 02 and would just like to tell anyone who doesn't know that Robert Plant will be down Barry Island guesting on a radio show. It will also be online, the details are below:- http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/radiowales/site...ruthjones.shtml I don't know what's going to happen or be said but to see him in my hometown is going to be incredible.
