    STRAY-Time Machine: A Discography.

    I used to see Stray when they visited my local pub The Oldfield Tavern around 1970 / 71 (this was the place where Keith Moon met the Who, pub now a block of flats...) - i remember those exploding dustbins, a great night had by all. I bought their first album the next day, they reached their...

    Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy (2008)

    Re: Chinese Democracy ~~~ Guns N' Roses The development of a band or artist is a journey - after 28 or so years Axl could hardly measure up to G'n'R's "Appetite.." could he? Just take "Chinese Democracy" for what it is, a finely crafted rock album from a star that still glimmers with more...

    The Bad Plus

    The three gentlemen of The Bad Plus- Ethan Iverson on Piano, Reid Anderson on Bass and Dave King on drums, have made some amazing music over the last ten years, drawing on many influences often by way of cover songs from Heavy Metal, Grunge, Pop, Classical and of course Jazz. Their off-beat...

    40 years ago today...we lost Jimi

    In 1970 I was very shocked and sad that the life of such a genius as Jimi could end so unnecessarily, he was still only beginning... During a visit to Hard Rock Cafe in London a few years ago the curator handed me a slightly battered and rusty Gibson flying vee guitar that once belonged to...

    Charlie Watts Blasts Beatles and Elvis

    The Rolling Stones and the Beatles were mates and sometimes played on each others records, as for Charlie's comment about the Stones being an "annoying pastime" i'm sure his tongue was well in his cheek here, a dry sense of humour maybe lost on some, though Charlie is still with the band after...

    Obscure Gems From The "Classic" Prog/Rock Era

    "Born Again" was awful..."Somebody's Watching" (1973) was a very good album and well worthy of a space amongst the others... w11sBIT97ds&feature=related

    Iron Maiden "The Final Frontier" headed for #1 in UK and US?

    Some divided opinion about this album from Maiden fans - reminds me of the "Nostradamus" debacle a year or two ago, damn fine album that was, and i just might add "The Final Frontier" to my library if the music, yes music, is as good as the promos/samples suggest - top hole chaps! :grinthumb .

    Re: Led Zeppelin Band of the Month, Nov 2009 On a TV interview with Robert this morning he made it very clear he would not be rejoining Led Zeppelin and was happy with his present project with "Band of Joy", a very different animal from LZ but a very nice album indeed...

    Budgie (Official Thread)

    Re: Budgie Never really cared much for their early stuff, too derivative at the time (which can be said of many bands) but they sound much more interesting now, though "Power Supply" and "Nightflight" are classic rock albums... the follow up to Night Flight "Deliver us from Evil"...
