Re: Happy birthday, Beaner!

Thanks again guys. We're friends with the head chef and gm of the nest steakhouse in town. They hooked us up with a private dinning room where we had a nice dinner. It was our first real dinner out and it was nice to feel sort of normal. Drinks in order: Old Fashion 1/2 bottle of wine A German Pils...

Re: Marky Dread Remasters

John, the doc is on Sky Arts this Friday. Along with Don Letts Belated thanks for the tip-off, whiteman. I did read this when you posted it, but I've already seen the doc c/o a download some months ago. It's well worth a look though. I was too young at the time to realise how prominent and credible...

Re: Marky Dread Remasters

...and thanks Marky for the remastered Us Festival. I see it has one extra track compared to the version you did in 2017 - worth having it for that alone. PS I never know if it's 'Us Festival' (as in 'us - we - lots of people') or 'US Festival' (as in 'United States') - anyone know? It seems to be s...

Re: Marky Dread Remasters

I was at Victoria Park in 1978. But I forgot to do a head count. Way to make a guy feel bad. :disshame: Hey, I have my RAR/Live Aid lecture coming up. I was wondering if you have any memories you can share about the mood of the crowd and all that. Did you get the impression that people were there b...

Re: Zoom wake for 101Walterton?

Well done everyone and especially Doc for getting the ball rolling- apologies for my absence (a combination of work commitments and Techno-Luddite tendencies) I think it’s great that such a sad event seems to have inspired some fun and human contact - We all know 101w would approve. Can anyone share...

Re: RIP 101 Walterton

I'm late to the discussion as usual, but this is unbelievable, shocking news. I'm still trying to take it in. Barny was part of the furniture here and has been as long as I've known the place, in this and previous incarnation. His posts were always funny, astute and his musical taste was second to n...

Well my test came back negative but I still have to isolate until Monday. Time to review those Peter Criss albums after all.
Glad to hear you got the all-clear Heston but isolating at home is still a bugger. Have a Merry Criss-mas in the meantime

Re: Deep Bob Dylan Theory 2012

After 11 years, Bob's Theme Time Radio Hour is back! Radio Two-Hours, in fact, on the theme of 'Whisky' (He freely admits to plugging his own Heavens Door bourbon at the start, but gets it out the way quick!) Say what you like about Bob but he keeps busy, and he keeps surprising us. https://www.yout...

Fair play to you. I reconnected my turntable and got it repaired a few years ago, it only needed a new band.
A new band? I thought there was only one that mattered... :mrgreen:
