  1. My mother and father were married on this day September 15th 1940. Dad was in the RAF but got a 48 hour pass to get married.
  2. Just an add to my last post, art exhibitions have the same thing. There is a certain kind of person who visit art exhibitions just to say they have been there or as a meeting point before a long lunch with friend.
  3. Great song Buc and great performance too.
  4. In the States the audience feel part of the show and not to make noise would be considered rude. In the UK there is a certain laid back attitude where the audience give off this feeling of, well I could do better even if they don't play themselves they want there fellow audience to think they do.
  5. It's the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo too!!!
  6. On the Rock Around the Clock recording session I think Frank Beecher was playing guitar but the solo was played by Danny Cedrone
  7. I was 14, there was some good guitar breaks in the Rock n Roll days largely forgotten. The one in Bill Halley's Rock Around the Clock was good too. I met his grandson who told me that his grandfather died soon after in a tragic accident falling down some stairs I believe, he was only in his twenties. Of course these were the days before Rock Gods and all the electric effects, I would think most of us would be pushed to name any Scoty Moore perhaps, James Burton..
  8. I know we were talking about forgotten guitar solos earlier in the month but this one has just come to mind. Connie Frances sang Lipstick On Your Collar in the fifties. A silly song but given status by the wonderful guitar break played by George Barnes. It's on You Tube, give it a spin.

  10. Very good Tim, I enjoyed it. Goes to show it's the music not the hard wear that counts.
  11. How many times have we all played G C G C D G it's as common as anything. There used to be a book called How to Play 1000 Songs on Three Chords. What happens then?
  12. I heard Blue Motel Room by Joni Michell on the radio yesterday, isn't that a great song! Has any member got the chords please?
  13. I still think Hotel California takes some beating.
  14. Yes me too but who played it.
