Here's a couple more for you Cff...

 

 

Got pretty well most of their albums; love a bit of Thin Lizzy at times!

Well was it a foregone conclusion that Ukraine was going to win?

I actually quite liked the winning song far better than our attempt from the young Rick Wakeman lookalike! Congratulations to Ukraine!

 

Still keep going back to watch this, which in my opinion is one of the best things ever seen or heard on Eurovision since Waterloo.

The Ukrainian interval act from 2017 which apparently millions didn't get to see as they broadcast adverts when she came on. I believe she was seen by audiences watching BBC....

Made it to Glasgow on Thursday 12 05 22 OVO Hydro, almost never happened for lots of reasons LOL but got there in the end, this was for Whitesnake Foreigner Europe triple bill, even this was long postponed because of Covid and is yet another of my post Covid (I hope)_ catch up shows.

What can I say? its a stunning line up, isn't it? Had seen Whitesnake several times over the years, but never Europe or Foreigner.

I do think David's voice is not quite all it was and between you and me, his body language suggests other health issues too, He looks good in this song, but also, this was only the second night of the tour, first was in Dublin ,,, at the end of the day and in the Still Of the Night, he's 70 + and I cut him tremendous amounts of slack, hope the planned tour goes on as planned and all the fans get to see him one last time ... it is Whitesnakes final tour.

Sorry if i sounded a wee bit negative there, just genuine fan concern is all.

Anyway, on with the post, it really was a very good triple show, posting a vid from Glasgow from each band, please enjoy ... oh and please watch out for the Foreigner clip, about half way through when singer asks for the candles to be turned on and the Glasgow crowd start singing ... magical stuff :)

Be Safe, Be Happy...& Don't Let Anyone Make You Afraid...

 

 

 


Sorry, had put links up as totaly private first time, all should be able to see now ... learning as i go along LOL

Blood Drive by ASG.

 

 

 

 

No, I'm not a rocker by any stretch of the imagination. I'm far too much of a self-conscious, sensitive indie kid (albeit a 56 year old one). And ASG are considered Southern Rock, which makes me think of Lynyrd Skynyrd and, therefore, repels me. But, on Blood Drive at least, it veers from dumb punk to introspective, melodic rock, and I can get onboard with that. There's also a hint of earlier Sabbath in places and speaking of, I followed with Master Of Reality.

 

Which is obviously about Stevia. ;-)

 

 

 

Sabbath was the first band I became obsessed with. It's music for outsiders. As someone who never really felt like they fitted in anywhere, they spoke to me in a way that no other band I'd heard at the time did. Subsequently, the music I gravitated towards tended to be dark and/or melancholy. Think The Cure, Joy Division, Radiohead, etc.

 

Tony Iommi is the reason I picked up the guitar. You'd never think so if you heard me, as I'm very much in the post-punk/dream pop mould, but occasionally, I'll pick up my tuned down to C# SG and murder a few Sabbath tunes.

Oh wow I haven't heard Madness in a long time, thanks for posting these. I couldn't agree more on the Sabbath comments by the way. Been a fan of them since 81 when I first heard them.

No problem and here's Ozzy at his best...

I'm a C standard man myself, and I love letting the fuzz flow.

The version of Mr Crowley on the Live And Loud album was just superb.  A young Zakk Wylde letting rip on some of Randy's greatest riffs; just perfect.

My favourite fuzz is a tweaked clone of the Monolith Oracle. It’s a Tonebender Mk 1.5/Fuzz Face derivative with very high gain germanium transistors and a modified Big Muff tonestack. Perfect for doom/stoner tones and on bass you can pluck a string and it just sustains forever! I named that fuzz the Flower Of Evil after the Electric Wizard song.

That does sound very nice indeed.  Is this one you've created yourself?  At the moment I'm using three fuzz pedals - an MXR Sub Machine, a Zander American Geek and a FuzzDog Sunny T Extreme.  They go straight into the front end of my Orange Rockerverb and sound great.  That said, can a man ever have too many fuzz pedals?  I think a Flower Of Evil would fit nicely in there!

From time to time I breeak out my Fleetwood Mac greatest hits CD, more often than not on those summer drives to model shows, when the urge to bellow along is highest. Other good best ofs for model shows for me are Madonna's Immaculate Collection, The Beach Boys platinum hits, Kylie's Greatest, The Kinks, the 40 song 2 CD best of the Stones, and the 50 song 2 CD best of the Beatles I burned many years ago. Despite my screen name, the Who's best ofs aren't necessarily the best on a hot summer's day on the motorway,. 

 

But Pete Townshend's best of - a different matter!

 

And sometimes, I take along those compilations of hits from the '60's, just because I think the pop charts then were the greatest collection of sngles of all time. Well, certainly  those from 1963 to 1969, inclusive.

 

So I'm listening to Fleetwood' Mac's best of. Why, perhaps is the question, now instead of Sunday on the way to or from the GLoucester club show?

 

Because I saw this in this morning's on line Guardian, 

 

https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2022/may/19/fleetwood-mac-ranked-30-best-songs

 

and I just fancied a sneaky extra bellow a longa Fleetwood Mac !!

Recently heard this performed in solidarity with Ukraine by artists from Vilnius. 

Goes to show what a good track Stephania by the Kalush Orchestra is, in my humble opinion.

Messed up my Whitesnake Foreigner Europe post by not posting Ytube links that actually worked, had set them to totally private, sorted now, please have another look, it was a very, very good show indeed 👍 Need to scroll up to see my original post and working videos I guess :)

I've declared this weekend punk weekend in Chez Wez, first instalment is the British First Wave starting with the only band that matters...

 

 

...followed by Johnny and the rest of those Pistol Boys...

 

 

...and finally, a tribute to the Shangri La's...

 

 

 

Remember, punk is for life, not only for 1976!

 

More instalments to follow which will include women in punk (can you guess who might be included there)?  American first wave punk, British second wave of punk and latter day punk

Punk weekend continued on Friday evening at Chez Wez, this lot got a sound listening to whilst I was cooking dinner...

 

...this one was the soundtrack to my angst ridden yoof!  It really resonated with the young man who knew there was more to the world than a small island off of the south coast of the UK, these lads from Northern Ireland knew how I felt...

 

 

...there's so many great songs I could pick from this band, if you have the time, seek out "The Crack", such a great album...

 

 

...finally a great Scottish band with one of the finest guitarists of the time, the late, great Stuart Adamson...

 

 

I'll be listening to some female fronted groups for the next instalment
