  1. Tal Wilkenfeld, at the age of 23, already has an impressive track record, including a tour with Chick Corea. Yes, the four-handed bass solo that developed into Freeway Jam was a highlight, as was the woman Jeff signed on stage after the encores. Although he now draws the state pension I hope he has many more years left in him to play live, and the next time he does - I'll be there. RB
  2. Good, or what? This bloke should be regarded as a national treasure. Last night's performance surpassed the one I saw five years ago in Portsmouth, plus the band he has now is something to behold. I was in row F (left side). Where were you? RB
  3. I first saw Robin Trower at The Fifteenth Jazz, Blues and Rock Festival (then, as now, referred to as The Reading Festival, UK,) in 1975. This was followed up by a gig at the Empire Pool, Wembley, London (now the Wembley Arena) the following year. I saw him last at Poole Arts Centre (now Lifehouse) in 1980. He was, on all occasions, superb. RB
  4. That's what I'm hoping. Oh, yes - happy birthday, Jeff (shouldn't he be retiring today?) RB
  5. Jeff Beck - Southampton, UK, on Friday 3rd July. Woo-hoo! RB
  6. I saw Fanny twice in concert in 1973, in Bournemouth and Southampton. They were far better than the Old Grey Whistle Test performance suggests. RB
  7. You'd think that after all these years the remark would be quoted in context. RB
  8. Procrastination: the thief of time, eh? I never make New Year resolutions, therefore can never break them. RB
  9. My 10.5mm f/2.8 Nikkor fisheye lens arrived. RB
  10. Well, not on Pink Floyd records. RB
  11. This is it. I'm surprised (well no, not really) at how many references are being made equating technical prowess with the quality of the music. Sure, it has its place, but it is not esential in all genres. It's the notes a musician doesn't play that makes the difference, and Pink Floyd were masters of that. RB
  12. And let's not forget Derek Trucks. RB
